"Round 1: Rosenberg/Mueller/Day" - March 10

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: Band Names, Come to the Point, Not a National Capital, Presidential Relative, Also a Bar Drink, 9-Letter Words

Daily Double: $1000 Presidential Relatives. Michael ($5000 to Pam's $7800 and Jay's -$1000) bets $2500. The clue: when he was veep, his brother Donald was involved in financial dealings with Howard Hughes. Michael's response: "Who is Nixon?" Correct for $7500.

End of Round:
Jay - -$1000
Pam - $8600
Michael - $8500

Double Jeopardy! categories: Brand Names, "Sh"! I'm Watching TV!, Literary Narrators, And the Horse, You Rodin, On...

Daily Double #1: $1200 You Rodin. Pam ($15,800 over Michael's $14,500 and Jay's -$200) bets $2200. Clue: the controversy surrounding your monument to this French author was a real "human comedy". Pam's guess: "Who is Balzac?" Correct for $18,000.

Video Daily Double #2: $1600 And the Horse. Pam ($24,000 over Michael's $16,100 and Jay's researcher-augmented $2200 - he was credited for a response to "The Gate of Hell" in You Rodin) bets $3000. Clue, delivered by Jimmy: these types of horses are bred for herding or running races of 1320 feet. Pam's guess: "What are quarter horses?" Correct for $27,000.

End of Round:
Jay - $2200
Pam - $30,600
Michael - $16,100

The girl is taking the old-schoolers to the new school. Remember, runners-up will take home $5000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Ancient Writers. Answer: born in 43 BC, his most famous work begins, "My intention is to tell of bodies changed to different forms". Correct response: Who was Ovid?

Jay's question: Who was Ovid? (RIGHT) Wager: $2200. Final score: $4400.
Michael's question: Who was Ovid? (RIGHT) Wager: $14,501. Final score: $30,601.
Pam's question: Who is Ovid? (RIGHT) Wager: $1601. Final score: $32,201.

Proving that the female is indeed the deadlier of the species, Pam dispatches her opponents and takes away the highest total to date (we think), $32,201. She 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, Grace Veach, Ryan Holznagel, Mark Dawson, and Michael Rooney as only the second college champ in round 2. Favorite to win? Probably...

Next time, Andrew "Andy" Westney, Steve Newman, and David Siegel vie for the rapidly closing spots in round 2.
