Semifinals: Baer/Peterson/Gandhi - July 25

While many kids are either getting ready to head back to the classroom or off enjoying their summer vacation, fifteen of the best in the nation are off to sunny California for one reason... to be the last person standing in the second Teen Tournament this season. Those fifteen... only nine remain now as they compete in this win-or-go-home week for a spot in the two-day final.

Another standard two-week affair awaits as the first runner-up receives $25,000 at least, while the second runner-up wins at least $15,000.

Semifinalists are guaranteed at least $5000. As always, any and all winning accrued depends on how far up the ladder a player goes.

So far, Kyle Neblett and Meryl Federman are ready to go to the two-day final. Who'll be the third?
