"Round 1: Cullen/Healy/Hale" - March 29

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: The President Who Said..., US Capitals of the World, Toys & Games, Pilots, I'm On Cloud "Nine", Mixed Dog Breeds.

Daily Double: $600 The President Who Said... Pat ($6400 over Kyle's $6200 & Bernie's $1200) bets $1400. The clue: "Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate." Pat's guess: "Who is FDR?" Correct response: Who is John F. Kennedy? Pat drops to second and $5000.

End of Round:
Bernie - $2200
Pat - $5000
Kyle - $7000

Double Jeopardy! categories: Found in Space, Canadian Idol, "Mission" Possible, Will & Disgrace, That's Credible, Wisconsin 3-0.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Will & Disgrace. Kyle ($9400 over Pat's $7400 and Bernie's $4600) goes for $2000. Clue: Demetrius & Chiron rape & mutilate Lavinia; this general, her dad, bakes them in a pie that he serves their mom. Kyle's guess: "What is Titus Andronicus." Correct for $9400.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Wisconsin 3-0. Bernie ($9800 to Pat's $9000 and Kyle's $11,800) goes $4000. Clue: there's no escaping the fact that his father, Mayer Samuel Weiss, was Appleton, Wisc.'s first rabbi. Bernie's guess: "Who is Houdini?" Correct for the lead and $13,800.

End of Round:
Bernie - $15,800 (later changed to $19,000 after it was ruled that Bernie's response in $1600 Found in Space was correct)
Pat - $7800
Kyle - $17,000

Pat looks like he's playing for pride. Remember, runners-up will take home $5000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $15,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Historical Plays. Answer: "If I were to dress as a woman, they would think of me as a woman... what would become of me?" is a line from this 1923 play. Correct response: What is "St. Joan?"

Pat's question: What is Major Barbara? (WRONG) Wager: $0. Final score: $7800.
Kyle's question: What is The Iceman Cometh? (WRONG) Wager: $2001. Final score: $14,999.
Bernie's question: What is Some Like It Hot? (WRONG) Wager: $15,034. Final score: $3966.

Thanks to that Hail Mary wager from Bernie, Kyle gets an extra dollar and a spot in the final 45 going up against the big 9. He earns $15,000 and joins 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, Eugene Finerman, John Cuthberson, and India Cooper in the next round.

Lot of names there, but who will we add next? We'll find out as Amy Fine, Rick Knutsen, and Craig Barker compete for Jeopardy! gold next time.
