"Round 1: Traini/Bailey/Wong" - February 14

In round one, there are 135 players competing in 45 games. The winners of those games will take on nine seeded opponents. The 18 winners then face off for six slots. The two winners of those semifinal games have a date with destiny in the form of one Ken Jennings for a three-day final. The winner of those games wins $2 million. Second place is guaranteed $500,000, while third place is guaranteed $250,000.

No wild cards, no second chances. It's (my favorite words when it comes to Jeopardy! tourneys) win or go home.

Jeopardy! categories: Name That Author, Hall of Famer by Position, Stock Symbol Shopping, What Would You Like to Drink?, Perhaps Some "Tea", A Cup of Kofi

Daily Double: $800 What Would You Like to Drink. Alan ($1200 to Janet's $1000 and David's $0) bets it all early. The clue: this beverage that can be "sweet" or "hard" is made from freshly pressed deciduous fruits. Alan's response: "What is cider?" Correct for $2400.

End of Round:
David - $1600
Alan - $7400
Janet - $3600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Philosophy, Movie Taglines, American Herstory, Country Distinctions, Geek Letter Societies, It's Greek to Me.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Movie Taglines. Alan ($10,200 to David's $4400 and Janet's $3600) bets $5000.  Clue: 1960: "They trained him to kill for their pleasure... But they trained him a little too well..." Alan's guess: "What is 'The Manchurian Candidate'?" Correct response: What is "Spartacus"? Alan drops to $5200, still leading, but not by much.

Video Daily Double #2: $800 American Herstory. Janet ($4000 to Alan's $3600 and David's $10,800) wagers $1200. Clue: as a girl in the 1830s, she nursed her brother David through a 2-year illness (came in handy later). Janet's guess: "Who is Florence Nightingale?" Wrong country. Correct response: Who was Clara Barton? Janet drops to third at $2800.

End of Round:
David - $12,800
Alan - $6000
Janet - $5600

Today's winner is guaranteed $15,000. Runners-up receive $5000 each.

Final Jeopardy! Category: State Symbols. Answer: in 1993 it became the first state to adopt an official flavor, which, incidentally, comes from its state tree. Correct response: What is Vermont?

Janet's question: What is Vermont? (RIGHT) Wager: $400. Final score: $6000.
Alan's question: What is Vermont? (RIGHT) Wager: All-in. Final score: $12,000.
David's question: What is Florida? (WRONG) Wager: $0. Final score: $12,800.

So David gets the house minimum of $15,000 and joins Eric Terzuolo, Michael Rankins, and Arthur Phillips in the Final 45.

Next time, Tom Cubbage, another favorite Bob Harris, and Frank Epstein.
