"Round 1: Scott/Vered/Clum" - February 28

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: $1600 Decade of Discovery. Jerome ($15,000 to Michelle's $9000 and Jim's $6400) goes $2500. Clue: DNA's double helix. Jerome's guess: "What are the 1950s?" Correct for $17,500.
