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.
