"Round 1: Lassiter/Wu/Ramen" - March 2

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: 21, School of Rock, Hints from Heloise... to Abelard, Pavlovian Jeopardy! (brief, but very telling, clues), Flag Me Down, Give Me "More"

Daily Double: $600 Flag Me Down. Lee ($200) finds it in only the second clue of the round. He risks the max of $1000. The clue: this geographic feature on Nebraska's state flag bears the name of another state. Lee's response: "What is the seal?" Correct response: What is the Missouri River? Lee drops to -$800.

End of Round:
Lee - -$800
Jennifer - $2600
Fred - $7400

Double Jeopardy! categories: Military History; Dennis, Anyone? Let's Have a Cookout; Geographer's Dictionary; A Success with Brush; Give Me "Less".

Daily Double #1: $800 A Success with Brush. Fred ($10,200 to Jennifer's $2600 and Lee's -$800) bets $2000.  Clue: in "The Story of Painting", Sister Wendy says "He is much more than a painter of the fair and fat". Fred's guess: "Who is Rubens?" Correct for $12,200.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Military History. Fred ($22,600 to Jennifer's $5000 and Lee's $3200) will only bet the $3000. Clue: a participant in WWI's Battle of the Marne was the BEF, short for this. Bruce's guess: "What is British Expeditionary Force?" Correct for $25,600.

End of Round:
Lee - $7200
Jennifer - $5000
Fred - $27,600

Nothing is ever certain on Jeopardy!, but at the risk of sounding cocksure, Jennifer and Lee will be taking home $5000, while Fred is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Detective Fiction. Answer: "Grand Master Villiers de l'Isle d'Adam had" this made "by Turkish slaves in the Castle of St. Angelo". Correct response: What is the Maltese Falcon?

Jennifer's question: What is the Golden Key? (WRONG) Wager: $5000. Final score: $0.
Lee's question: What is ? (WRONG) Wager: $7200. Final score: $0.
Fred's question: What is the Maltese Falcon? (RIGHT) Wager: $6400. Final score: $34,000.

Fred has become a contender with his $34,000 win, as he joins Eric Terzuolo, Michael Rankins, Arthur Phillips, David Traini, Bob Harris, Vinita Kailasanath, Bev Schwartzberg, Dan Melia, Mark Eckard, Michael Dupee, Jeff Richmond, John Beck, Tad Carithers, Jerome Vered, and Bruce Borchardt in the next round.

Next time, Ed Schiffer, Andrew Garen, and way way WAY old school for this one, Paul Boymel.
