"Round 1: Daunt/Stewart/Weiss" - March 22

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: We Were Soldiers; Rock Band Drummers; Ben, Benjamin, or Just Plain B; Word Origins; Do It Like Europeans; That's So "Continental"

Daily Double: $800 We Were Soldiers. Michael ($9400 way over Jamie's $1000 and Jeff's $800) bets $3000. The clue: a fort & a Tennessee city are named for this general who was also our nation's first Secretary of War. Correct: Who was Knox? Michael: Who was Knox? It's good for $12,400.

End of Round:
Michael - $13,800
Jeff - $1800
Jamie - $1000

Double Jeopardy! categories: German Composers, Movie Title Pairs, 20th Century Science, Yankee Magazine, Kiddy Lit, 5-Letter Words

Daily Double #1: $2000 German Composers. Jeff ($2200 to Michael's $17,400 and Jamie's $1400): "Can I bet $22,000?" Alex: "No!" Jeff: "$2200?" Alex: "Sure." Clue: in 1940 he wrote "Japanische Festmusik" as a gesture of friendship between Germany & Japan. Jeff's guess: "Who is Hofstadter?" Correct response: Who is Richard Strauss? Jeff loses everything.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Kiddy Lit. Jeff (a nice recovery, $6000 to Michael's $23,400 and Jamie's $1400) goes all-in again. Clue: Hansel had a sister named Gretel; so did this boy in an 1865 novel. Jeff's guess: "What is Hans Brinker?" Correct for $12,000.

End of Round:
Michael - $23,400
Jeff - $12,400
Jamie - $2200

Just when you think it's a walk for Michael... it isn't. Remember, runners-up will take home $5000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Cyber-Glossary. Answer: in computerese this word from the Hindu faith means an icon of a user in virtual reality. Correct response: What is an avatar?

Jamie's question: What is an avatar? (RIGHT) Wager: $2200. Final score: $4400.
Jeff's question: What is avatar? (RIGHT) Wager: $12,400. Final score: $24,800.
Michael's question: What is avatar? (RIGHT) Wager: $1401. Final score: $24,801.

Enough to win by one, but Michael avenges his earlier loss with a dominating front game and $24,801 to show for it. He'll knuckle up with 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, Robert Slaven, and Shane Whitlock in the next round.

Three weeks left in round one. Who out of Steve Berman, Brad Plovan, or Phoebe Juel will take slot #31?
