"Round 1: Nichols/Finerman/George" - March 24

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.

Eugene's guess: "Who is Cameron Burns?" Good question. Correct response: What is the Amber Alert System? Eugene loses everything.

Daily Double #2: $1200 The Orchestra. Tom ($8600 to Eugene's $10,400 and Chacko's $4200) goes $1600. Clue: for much of the 20th C., Gregor Piatigorsky was regarded as the world's second-greatest virtuoso on this instrument. Tom's guess: "What is the violin?" Correct response: What is the cello? We go 0-for-3 on Daily Doubles, as Tom goes to $7000.

End of Round:
