Preliminaries: USC/UNC/Penn - May 3

Rivalries have been fought everywhere from the hardwood to the gridiron, but here at the University of Southern California, players from 15 prestigious colleges will take each other on in a rivalry of the academic kind.

But more than pride is on the line, as the winner of this two-week tournament will get a berth in the next Tournament of Champions as well as a check with a one followed by five zeroes. The first runner-up will pocket at least $50,000, while the second runner-up will take home a minimum of $25,000. Semifinalists are guaranteed $10,000, whilst there's a minimum of $5000 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

In this first week, the five game-winners will meet up with four wild-card players among non-winning high scorers.

So far, Dean Malec of Northwestern, Craig Boge of Stanford, and Pete Troyan of Michigan are the only ones assured of a seat in the semis. Next up, a Trojan and a Quaker take on one steamin' pile of Tar Heel...
