"Round 1: Thompson/McManus/Cloud" - April 4

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: Las Vegas Centennial; Toon Up; Roberts Rule; Nature; Army, Navy or Marine; Ends in "X"

Daily Double: $800 Ends in "X". April (tied with Paul's $600) fronts $1000 early. The clue: Province House in this provincial capital is Canada's oldest parliament building. April's guess: "What is Halifax, Nova Scotia?" Correct for $1600.

End of Round:
Paul - $2600
April - $3400
Larry - $6600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Health Matters, The Director's Chair, Alternative History Novels, In a "B" Country, 2 Million, Bucks

Daily Double #1: $2000 In a "B" Country. April ($3800 to Larry's $6600 and Paul's $1400) goes for $3000. Clue: its Altiplano region was home to the great Thuanaco Empire. April's guess: "What is Bolivia?" Correct for $6800 and the lead.

Daily Double #2: $2000 2 Million. April ($17,600 over Larry's $11,400 and Paul's $1800) fronts just $1000. Clue: from the Greek for "most recent", this epoch began about 2 million years ago and saw the 1st appearance of humans. April's guess: "The Pleistocene? I don't know. The Pleistocene... What is the Pleistocene?" These players need to brush up on their Jeopardese here. Anyway, April is up $18,600.

End of Round:
Paul - $5400
April - $17,000
Larry - $11,400

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: Presidents & The Movies. Answer: this President arranged the first film showing in the White House when he had "The Birth of a Nation" screened there. Correct response: Who is Woodrow Wilson?
