"Round 1: Carithers/Pawlowicz/Lin" - February 25

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: The US President When...; Allison Janney Was in That?; Quotes; Fruits & Vegetables; Hello, My Deer; Double "D"s

Daily Double: $1000 Double "D"s. Tad ($4000 in a seesaw battle to Leszek's $5200 and Al's $400) bets $1000. The clue: considered her masterpiece, this novel by George Eliot is subtitled "A Study of Provincial Life". Tad's response: "What is 'Middlemarch'?" Correct for $5000.

End of Round:
Tad - $6400
Leszek - $5200
Al - $1400

Double Jeopardy! categories: The British Monarch When..., Songs From Musicals, Antipodeans, Foreign 3-Letter Words, West Virginia, Airports

Daily Double #1: $1600 The British Monarch When.... Al ($3400 to Tad's $6400 and Leszek's $5200) bets $3000.  Clue: ... Shakespeare wrote "Hamlet". Als guess: "Who was James I?" Correct response: Who was Elizabeth I? Al drops to $400.

Daily Double #2: $2000 West Virginia. Leszek ($6400 to Tad's $8800 and Al's $400) wants that captain's chair; so it's True Daily Double. Clue: then a part of Virginia, this village became famous for an Oct. 16, 1859 event. Leszek's guess: "What is Harper's Ferry?" Correct for $12,800.

End of Round:
Tad - $17,200
Leszek - $15,600
Al - $7600

Remember, the losers get $5000 each, while the winner is guaranteed at least  $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Wood. Answer: The remarkable elasticity of yew led to this new weapon that made history at a 1346 battle. Correct response: What is the longbow?

Al's question: What is the crossbow? (WRONG) Wager: $4399. Final score: $3201.
Leszek's question: What is the longbow? (RIGHT) Wager: $1601. Final score: $17,201.
Tad's question: What is the longbow? (RIGHT) Wager: $14,100. Final score: $31,300.

Even if Leszek went big, he still would've lost. The penultimate clue (where the light bulb came on too late) did him in, as Tad takes $31,300 into the next round, joining Eric Terzuolo, Michael Rankins, Arthur Phillips, David Traini, Bob Harris, Vinita Kailasanath, Bev Schwartzberg, Dan Melia, Mark Eckard, Michael Dupee, Jeff Richmond, and John Beck.

Twenty-eight spots left. Next time, another heavy hitter in Jerome Vered, another underdog in Tim Scott, and another woman in Michelle Clum.
