"Round 1: Wexler/Ryan/Whitlock" - March 21

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: National Historic Sites; Hello, BB; I'll Have a Sub to Go; A Side of Beans; You Could Hurt Someone; Ski

Daily Double: $1000 I'll Have a Sub to Go. John ($4000 over Shane's $1800 and Lynne's $1600) bets $2000. The clue: on Feb. 17, 1864 it became the first sub to sink an enemy ship, the Union's Housatonic. John's response: "Ah.... Don't remember." Correct response: What is the Hunley? John is still in the lead with $2000, but not by much

End of Round:
Lynne - $4600
John - $3600
Shane - $1000

Double Jeopardy! categories: Theologians, Oscar-Winning Songs, Shakespearean Crossword Clues "M", The Radio Alphabet, Electoral College Scholarship, -Ski.

Daily Double #1: $2000 Theologians. Shane ($3800 to John's $5600 and Lynne's $5400) fronts the level. Clue: during King Philip's War, this minister acted as a captain of the Providence militia & fought the Indians. Shane's guess: "Who is Mather?" Correct response: Who is Roger Williams? Shane drops to $1800.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Shakespearean Crossword Clues "M". Shane ($3000 to Lynne's $6200 and John's $4400) bets it all. Clue: the last proper name spoken by Macbeth (7). Shane's guess: "What is Macduff?" Correct for $6000 and second place.

End of Round:
Lynne - $9800
John - $7600
Shane - $18,400

All of a sudden, anyone can win... except for John. Well, maybe John, if Shane were to make a goofball wager. Remember, runners-up will take home $5000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: World Facts. Answer: in 2004 Brenda Christian became the first woman mayor of this island, with a population of about 47. Correct response: What is Pitcairn Island?

John's question: What is Pictcairn Island? (Judges... Nope.) Wager: $7600. Final score: $0.
Lynne's question: What is Pitcairn? (RIGHT) Wager: $9800. Final score: $19,600.
Shane's question: What is Pitcairn? (RIGHT) Wager: $2000. Final score: $20,400.

The Final looked like it would've gone any which way but in John's direction, but later-round luck turns a corner as Shane represents the college crowd with $20,400 and a berth alongside 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, Leah Greenwald, Jonathan Groff, Brian Moore, and Robert Slaven in the next round.

We're down to the sweet sixteen with Jeff Stewart, Michael Daunt, and Jamie Weiss on deck. Now we talked of two of these in WLTI, but will Jamie pull the upset? Stay tuned...
