"Round 1: Wangsgard/Bate/Melia" - February 18

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.

Daily Double: $1000 US Place Names. Brian ($1000 to Jeremy's $800 and Dan's $200) lets it ride early. The clue: popular with shoppers, this Pa. town was named for a tavern that was named after Frederick the Great. Brian's response: "What is King of Prussia?" Correct for the double up, $2000.

Double Jeopardy! categories: The Ottoman Empire, Possessive Movies, Hidden Books of the Bible (a "Now You See It" category), 19th Century Quotes, Mac, PC

Daily Double #1: $1600 19th Century Quotes. Dan ($2400 to Brian and Jeremy's $3400 a piece) bets only $1400.  Clue: in 1871, this New Yorker said, "As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it?". Dan's guess: "Who's Boss Tweed?" Correct for $3800 and the lead. Dan would go on to sweep and fire would ensue.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Mac. Brian ($5800 to Dan's $12,600 and Jeremy's $7800) says... "Like a good resident of Salt Lake City, $4200." Clue: former British diplomat Donald MacLean died in this world capital in 1983. Brian's guess: "I can't give you anything?" Correct response: What is Moscow? Brian drops to $1600. And he loses THAT to a clue in Hidden Books of the Bible.

End of Round:
Brian - $0 - OUT
Jeremy - $9800
Dan - $17,000

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: Wordplay. Answer: this word for a type of war is one of the few 5-letter words that can be made using only Roman numerals. Correct response: What is civil?

Jeremy's question: What is divid? (WRONG) Wager: $9800. Final score: $0.
Dan's question: What is civil? (RIGHT) Wager: $2601. Final score: $19,601.

Dan just puts the hurt on his opponents, as he comes back with $19,601 to challenge Eric Terzuolo, Michael Rankins, Arthur Phillips, David Traini, Bob Harris, Vinita Kailasanath, and Bev Schwartzberg.

Next time, Kermin Fleming brings the 1337 to Lance Johnson and Mark Eckard.
