Preliminaries: Cheney/Pae/Penning
November 9

Teachers are the backbone of our American school system. Fifteen of them are particularly strong and gifted. Those 15 were invited to Culver City to take part in the third annual (sort of) Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament. The one that rises to the head of the class will win $100,000 and a guaranteed slot in the next Tournament of Champions.

Second place is guaranteed $50,000, while third will get $25,000 in a standard two-week event. Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $10,000, while quarterfinalists are guaranteed $5000 for participation. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

Only nine of the fifteen that compete week one will be invited to return in week two, however, the five winners this week and four wild card top-scorers.

Colby Burnett and John Hines are already locked in for next week. At the end of this match, we start cutting.

Daily Double: $1000 Civics. Robin has $2600, betting $1400 of it on this: for a constitutional amendment to take effect, this fraction of the states must ratify it. "What is 2/3?" No, it was 3/4, dropping her to $1200.

*Each response in category #6 must be an element. For example, the response to "The abbreviation for company" would be "What is cobalt?" for Co.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Remember Bookstores? Marion has $7200, betting $2000 of it on this: this word preceded "Ink" in the name of one of the first mystery bookstores, opened in 1972. "What is murder?" Correct for $9200!

Daily Double #2: $1600 Elemental Symbols. Marion storms ahead with $13,200, and the bet is $3000 on this: French preposition between coq & vin. "What is gold?" CORRECT for Au and $16,200.

At the end of Double Jeopardy!... The best Chris can hope for is Wild Card...

As always, each contestant in the tournament will receive a copy of Educational Insights' "Classroom Jeopardy!" for their schools.

Final Jeopardy! category: DISASTERS

 

IN 2012 THE NATIONAL POSTAL MUSEUM MARKED THE 75TH & 100TH ANNIVERSARIES OF THESE 2 DISASTERS WITH AN EXHIBIT CALLED "FIRE & ICE"

 

Correct response: what are the Hindenburg & Titanic incidents?

Chris' response: what are the Titanic & Triangle Shirt? WRONG. Wager: $7401. Total: $399.
Robin's response: what is the Chicago Fire & the Titanic? WRONG. Wager: $12,000. Total: $1400.
Marion's response: what are the Titanic sinking & the Hindenburg? RIGHT. Wager doesn't matter.

Semifinalist: Marion Penning

It was a close match to start, but Marion broke out in Double Jeopardy! A word of caution, a winner not only closes the deal in the Final, but also plays 30 minutes of Jeopardy!. If Marion wants a place in the final, she needs to start as good as she finishes.

Meanwhile, Chris from today and Francesca from today can pick up their $5K on the right. Monday, we begin to build the final nine.
