"Round 2: Slaven/Finerman/Dupee" - April 22
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.
