"Round 1: Plovan/Berman/Juel" - March 23

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.

Daily Double #1: $800 Bruce Almighty. Brad ($10,000 to Steve's $12,000 and Phoebe's $8800) bets his distance, $2000. his July 20, 1973 death in Hong Kong at age 32 shocked the world. Brad goes blank. Correct response: Who is Bruce Lee? Brad goes to third with $8000.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Rough Politics. Steve ($15,200 over Phoebe's $8800 and Brad's $8000) goes $6000. Clue: "If anyone wants to (follow) me, go ahead, they'd be very bored", this politician said in 1987; they did, & they weren't. Steve's guess: "Who is Michael Dukakis?" Correct response: Who is Gary Hart? Now we have a game with Steve at $9200.

End of Round:

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: Major League Baseball. Answer: the team names of these 2 expansion clubs start with the same 3 letters; one might catch the other. Correct response: What are the Mariners and the Marlins?
