How to think about combined Coryat?

Post by mas3cf »

I've been tracking my Coryat as a function of the combined Coryats of the contestants. What would be a good rule of thumb that would suggest you would have had a decent shot of winning the episode?

Here are my thoughts:

- You wouldn't have had to face all three of the contestants, so 100% of the combined Coryat wouldn't be necessary to win.
- There is some correlation between what people do and don't know, so 67% probably wouldn't cut it.

- So... 80-90% of the combined Coryat, assuming you are decent on the buzzer, should give you a fighting chance? This would mean in the low 30s for an average episode where the combined
Coryat is about 37k. This is just a guesstimate, but I'm curious to hear other thoughts.
