"Round 2: Dawson/Djang/Richmond" - April 27

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.

Double Jeopardy! categories: Literary Greece, Academy Award-Winning Roles, National Parks; Oscar, Meyer, Wiener; "C" in Shakespeare, Also a Planet.

Daily Double #1: $1600 National Parks. Lan ($18,200 over Mark's $8600 and Jeff's -$400) bets $1800. Clue: this nat'l park in Florida consists of 27 low coral islands, none of which has fresh water, thus its "parched" name. Lan's guess: "What is Everglades?" Correct response: What are the Dry Tortugas? Lan drops to $16,400, but his next move is....

Daily Double #2: $1200 Oscar, Meyer, Wiener. Lan wagers $2000. Clue: he quipped, "It is only shallow people who do not judge by appearances". Lan's guess: "Who is Oscar Wilde?" Correct for $18,400.

End of Round:

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

Final Jeopardy! Category: Religious History. Answer: from the Greek, the name of this movement of the early Christian era means that its members has knowledge of God. Correct response: What is Gnosticism?

Jeff's question: What is Gnosticism? (RIGHT) Wager: all-in. Final score: $3200.
Mark's question: What is Gnostics? (RIGHT) Wager: all-in. Final score: $21,200.
Lan's question: What is Gnosticism? (RIGHT) Wager: $2450. Final score: $21,250.

Eleven seats decided, still seven to go. See you tomorrow!
