The sixth US MONOPOLY Championship was held in November 1982 at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. Jerome Dausman won the tournament over a field of 50 state champions plus DC, 4 regional champions and the defending champion, Dana Terman. His prize was a silver medal and a trip to the 1983 World Championship. Two preliminary rounds were held to determine the four finalists who would compete against Terman.
From an account by CA rep Michael Hudson: "Terman, survived a 30-minute span when he was the only player without a monopoly, and Dausman, hung in with just the oft-derided Mediterranean-Baltic combination and not much else. Dausman, an accounting firm executive, finally broke Terman at about the 2 hour mark."
