Test Your Knowledge Tuesday!

The answer to last week's tester: Johannes won, Rene came in second, Louis came in third.

This week challenge:
97 baseball teams participate in an annual state tournament. The champion is choses for this tournament by the usual elimination scheme. That is, the 97 teams are divided into pairs, and the two teams of each pair play against each other. The loser of each pair is eliminated, and the the remaining teams are paired up again, etc.

How many games must be played to determine a champion?

Feel free to post answers in the comments section, or return next Tuesday to find out what the answer is.

Your time...starts...NOW!
