"Round 2: Borchardt/Harris/Daunt" - April 18

In round one, 45 players won their games. Now they join nine seeded opponents in Jeopardy! lore for 18 more game. 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.

Daily Double: $800 Playing President. Bob ($3400 over Bruce's $1400 and Michael's $600) just does $1000. The clue: William Parry was James Garfield in the original production of this Sondheim musical. Bob's guess: "What is 'Merrily We Roll Along'?" Correct response: What is "Assassins"? Bob suffers from brain death to the tune of $2400.

Bob - $3600
Michael - $5400

Double Jeopardy! categories: Egyptian Life, 1970s Pop Music, Labor, Your Number's Up, Fill in the Title, I'm Just a "Bill".

Daily Double #1: $1200 Labor. Bob ($4400 to Michael's $6200 and Bruce's $4000) goes all-in. Clue: his entry into the World Book lists birth & death as (1913-1975?). Bob's guess: "Who is Jimmy Hoffa?" Correct for $8800 and the lead.

Daily Double #2: $2000 Your Number's Up. Michael ($13,000 to Bob's $13,200 and Bruce's $8400) tries $3000. Clue: number of different opening moves possible by one player in a game of chess. Michael's guess: "What is 20?" Correct for $16,000 and the lead.

End of Round:
Bruce - $8400

Michael - $16,000

In round 2, runners-up are guaranteed $10,000, while the winner is guaranteed at least $20,000.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Invented Words. Answer: in works by Lewis Carroll, this word means "four in the afternoon; the time when you begin broiling things for dinner". Correct response: What is brillig?

Bruce's question: What is brillig? (RIGHT) Wager: $0. Final score: $8400.
Michael's question: What is brillig? (RIGHT) Wager: $6801. Final score: $22,801.
Bob's question... after quoting the entire passage: What is teatime? (WRONG) Wager: $15,000. Final score: $1200.

Oh my... we love Bob. Hate to see him go, but it's all about Michael Daunt, as his steamroll to victory continues with $47,602 in his pocket, and a date with Dan Melia, Steve Chernicoff, and Michael Rooney in the future.

Seat number five is up for grabs tomorrow.
