"Round 1: Groff/Timanus/Grewe" - March 16

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.

In UTOC play, not only will Eddie receive a Braille card with all the categories, but they have adjusted the lights around the perimeter of the board so that they will also play a soft tone, similar to an activated WOF square, to account for the advanced competition.

Jeopardy! categories: Historic Names, I Love Lucy, "C" in Cooking, Full Nelson, Mad About Scientists, Can I Get Your Number?

Daily Double: $400 Historic Names. Jonathan finds it in only the second clue of the round and wagers $1000. The clue: leaving for Italy in 218 BC, he gave command of the Carthaginian Army in Spain to his brother Hasdrubal. Jonathan's response: "Who is Hannibal?" Correct for $1200.

End of Round:
Jonathan - $8400
Eddie - $2400
Jean - $4800

Double Jeopardy! categories: The Largest in Area, Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs, Aviation, _____ of the _____, Words "Inc", Publish or Perish

Daily Double #1: $1600 Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs. Eddie ($2000 to Jean's $10,000 and Jonathan's $10,800) "makes it true". Clue: no. 89 is this 1966 hit that John Phillips came up with on a cold winter's night in Manhattan. Eddie's guess: "What is 'California Dreamin''?" Correct for $4000.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Publish or Perish. Jonathan ($15,600 over Jean's $10,800 and Eddie's $3600) bets $4800. Clue: this writer was working on a novel, "Le Premier Homme", when he was killed in a car accident. Jonathan's guess: "Who is Camus?" Correct for $20,400.

End of Round:
Jonathan - $18,000
Eddie - $9600
Jean - $12,000

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: The 2004 US Elections. Answer: this woman received the third-highest vote total of any candidate for all of the November 2004 elections Correct response: Who is Barbara Boxer?

Eddie's question: Who is Barbara Boxer? (RIGHT) Wager: $9600. Final score: $19,200.
Leah's question: Who is ? (WRONG) Wager: $12,000. Final score: $0.
Jonathan's question: Who is Barbara Boxer? (RIGHT) Wager: $6001. Final score: $24,001.

At least Eddie gave it a good run in the later round, but Jonathan carries teh day with $24,001, joining 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, Chris Miller, and Leah Greenwald in the next round.
