"Round 1: Fleming/Eckard/Johnson" - February 21

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 #2: $2000 "CS," I. Lance ($8000 to Mark's $9200 and Kermin's $7600) bets the level. Clue: When the Spanish-American War broke out, this poet enlisted in the 6th Illinois Infantry. Lance's guess: "What is Carl Sandburg?" Correct for an even $10,000 and the lead.

End of Round:

Or, in Bugs Bunny parlance, "Close one, ain't it?" Today's winner is guaranteed $15,000. Runners-up receive $5000 each.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Foreign Words & Phrases. Answer: it's the more commonly used term for the practice of Chinese geomancy. Correct reponse: What is Feng Shui?

Next time, Michael Dupee holds court against Jack Archey and Sandra Gore.
