"Round 1: Ikawa/Cuthberson/Blake" - March 25

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: Marine Biology, TV Spin-Offs, Olympic Mascots, Be a Potato Head, A Mann Called Horace, Soft "Cel"

Daily Double: $800 Olympic Mascots. John ($3200 to Bob's $6200 & Bruce's $400) bets $1600. The clue: Hidy & Howdy, polar bears with cowboy hats, were the mascots of the 1988 Winter Games in this city. John's guess: "What is Calgary?" Correct for $4800.

End of Round:
Bruce - $1400
John - $7200
Bob - $8600

Double Jeopardy! categories: New York City Mayors, Oscar-Winning Actresses, "So" Far Away, Put Out the Good Silver, Mozart & Friends, Numerical Phrases.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Numerical Phrases. Bob ($10,200 to John's $13,600 and Bruce's $3800) goes for $4000. Clue: these were posted October 31, 1517; the Archbishop of Mainz got a copy. Bob's guess: "Is it the 95 Theses?" Talk about dodging a big bullet! Instead, Bob takes the lead with $14,200. Hey, they say "phrase it as a question." They never said what question.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Put Out the Good Silver. John ($21,200 over Bob's $18,200 and Bruce's $9400; they'll end the round with these totals) goes $2800. Clue: silver is second only to gold in ductility & this, the ability to be hammered into thin sheets. John's guess: "What is malleability?" Correct for $24,000, which is where he'll end the round.

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: 12-Letter Words. Answer: a chemist in the 1920s coined this term after finding lavender oil not only hid the odor of his burnt hand, but also healed it. Correct response: What is aromatherapy?

Bruce's question: What is analgesic? (WRONG) Wager: $9399. Final score: $1.
Bob's question: What (WRONG) Wager: $8000. Final score: $10,200.
John's question: What ? (WRONG) Wager: $12,500. Final score: $11,500.

John cut it pretty darn close with the wager, but still, he is guaranteed $15,000 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, Robert Slaven, Shane Whitlock, Michael Daunt, Steve Berman, and Eugene Finerman in the next round.
