[S3E26] Contest Of Champions Part Four
Early on the ABC version, contestants played a single elimination game; the winning contestants could stay until either defeated or win a maximum of 10 games, thus retiring them as undefeated champions. Later on, the limit was dropped, and champions stayed on the show until defeated. Every three months, the four top winners during that period would return for a quarterly contest.
