"Round 2: Berman/Newhouse/Whitlock" - April 19

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.

Today, one of the Million Dollar Master players returns to roost.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Abbr. Eric ($8200 to Shane's $10,800 and Steve's $9800) fronts $4000. Clue: 4-letter abbreviation for the agency that investigates all the USA's civil aviation accidents. Eric's guess: "What is the NTSA?" So close. Correct response: What is the NTSB? Eric drops further back to $4200.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Occupational Names. Eric ($6600 to Steve's $10,200 and Shane's $9600) puts it all out to take the lead. Clue: this common English last name indicates an ancestor who rounded wood on a lathe. Eric's guess: "What is Cooper?" Correct response: What is Turner? Eric is zapped to nothingness.

Seat number six is up for grabs tomorrow.
