"Round 1: Kelly/Holznagel/Eddy" - March 7

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: Novel Places, Who's Had More No. 1 Hits?, World Leaders: 1871, A Snake in the Category, "De" Arts, A Number from 1 to 10.

Daily Double: $600 Novel Places. Ryan ($2000 to Barbara-Anne's $2600 and John's $1200) fronts $1000. The clue: this work, Jules Verne's first novel, surveys Africa from the air. Ryan's response: "What is 'Around the World in 80 Days'?" Correct response: What is "Five Days in a Balloon"? Ryan still has $1000.

End of Round:
John - $2200
Ryan - $3800
Barbara-Anne - $6600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Particle Physics, Let's Visit Palau, Jamie Foxx Roles, African Cuisine, Latin Legal Terms, & One Last "EZ" Category.

Daily Double #1: $2000 Particle Physics. Ryan ($11,000 to Barbara-Anne's $11,400 and John's $3000) bets $1111. Clue: The study of collisions that create new particles is this physics branch, HEP for short. Ryan's guess: "What is high-energy particles?" Correct for $12,111.

Daily Double #2: $1200 & One Last "EZ" Category. Barbara-Anne ($15,400 over Ryan's $13,711 and John's $3000) bets $5600. Clue: one of Thomas Edison's first-ever filmed shorts showed his assistant Fred Ott doing this. Barbara-Anne's guess: "What is on a trapeze?" Correct response: What is sneezing? Barbara-Anne drops to $9800.

End of Round:
John - $7000
Ryan - $16,111
Barbara-Anne - $11,800

Remember, runners-up will take home $5000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Sports Phrase Origins. Answer: In 1939, an Illinois sports official wrote, "A little" of this alliterative phrase may "contribute to sanity". Correct response: What is March Madness?

John's question: What ? (WRONG, though he came up with the right answer afterwards) Wager: $6900. Final score: $100.
Barbara-Anne's question: What is Time...? (WRONG) Wager: $11,800. Final score: $0.
Ryan's question: What is Play Ball? (WRONG) Wager: $7887. Final score: $8224.

So you can add up all of Ryan's weird wagers today, but in the end, it adds up to victory, as he takes $15,000 today and 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, Bruce Borchardt, Fred Ramen, Ed Schiffer, and Grace Veach in the next round.

Next time, a favorite around here, Mark Dawson takes on Elaine Zollner and Chris Ward.
