"Round 1: Morris/Greenwald/Lach" - March 15

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.

Biggest winner, '99-2000 season

Jeopardy! categories: The Newspaper, The Sports Page, The Book Review, The Food Section, The Personals, The "C"rossword Puzzle.

Daily Double: $1000 The Sports Page. Doug ($800 to Matt's $1000) bets the maximum, $1000 early. The clue: one of this league's biggest newsmakers in 2004-'05 was Commissioner Gary Bettman. Doug's response: "What is the National Hockey League?" Correct for $1800.

End of Round:
Matt - $2000
Leah - $4000
Doug - $9600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Music, Five Easy Pisces, Chaplin, From the CIA World Factbook, The State of Education, 15-Letter Words.

Daily Double #1: $800 From the CIA World Factbook. Doug ($13,200 over Leah's $11,600 and Matt's $2000) bets big, $4000. Clue: the center of power of an empire until 1918, this country is a bit smaller than Maine. Doug's guess: "What is Austria?" Correct for $17,200.

Video Daily Double #2: $800 Music. Leah ($16,400 to Doug's $20,000 and Matt's $2000) sighs.... "$5000". Clue, delivered by Cheryl: in the treble clef, the lines of the staff are E, G, B, D, F, so the spaces are known by this anatomical acronym. Leah's somewhat somber guess: "What is face?" Correct for $21,400 and the lead.

End of Round:
Matt - $4000
Leah - $23,400
Doug - $26,400

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: Artistic Masterpieces. Answer: "Shouldn't the shining dots of the sky be as accessible as the black dots on the map of France?" the artist wrote of this work. Correct response: What is "Starry Night"?

Matt's question: What is Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte? (WRONG) Wager: $4000. Final score: $0.
Leah's question: What is Starry Night? (RIGHT) Wager: $23,400. Final score: $46,800.
Chris' question: What is Starry Nights? (Going to the judges... WRONG!) Wager: $24,000. Final score: $2400.

Best. Match. EVER. Best. Final. Ever. Just a good game all around, as Leah comes from behind to take the game and a new high: $46,800. 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, Michael Rooney, Pam Mueller, Steve Newman, and Chris Miller in the next round.

Next up, our good friend Eddie Timanus defends his championship against Jean Grew and Jonathan Groff.
