"Round 1: Halpern/Gilmer/Naegeli" - March 31

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.

Graham drops to $1600.

Final Jeopardy! Category: English Lit. Answer: this 17th C. poetic follow-up begins, "I who ere while the happy garden sung, by one man's disobedience lost." Correct response: What is "Paradise Regained"?
