"Round 1: LeDonne/Williams/Veach" - March 8

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.

Clue: he moved from Germany to Paris at age 14 & entered the house of Chanel as artistic director in 1983. Mark's guess: "Who is Yves Saint-Laurent?" Correct response: "Who is Karl Lagerfeld?"; Mark drops to $5350, still leading.

Daily Double #2: $2000 & The Reign in Spain. Mark ($13,350 over Chris's $10,600 and Elaine's $7800) bets $3000. Clue: in 1700 Philip V founded this dynasty in Spain; it was France's ruling dynasty from 1589 to 1792. Mark's guess: "What is Bourbon?" Correct for $16,350.
