"Quarterfinals: Mueller/Yellman/Moore" - May 10

In round one, 45 players won their games. They joined nine seeded players of which two moved on with sixteen others. Now they face each other in six more games, as they move closer and closer to the two semifinal matches and a dream quiz date with Jeopardy!'s reigning king of quiz, 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: CNN25 Potpourri, Anagrammed British Cities, The Fabulous '50s, A "C" in Anatomy, Gifts for Everyone, Quasi-Related Pairs.

Daily Double: $400 Gifts for Everyone. Phil ($2600 to Brian's $9000 and Pam's $3600) bets all of it. The clue: proposed by historian Edouard de Laboulaye, it was presented to the US for its centennial. Phil's guess: "What is the Statue of Liberty?" Correct for $5200 and second place.

End of Round:
Pam - $3600
Phil - $5400
Brian - $9000

If you are a fan of "Cheers", you'll recognize these Double Jeopardy! categories: Civil Servants, Stamps from Around the World, Mothers & Sons, Beer, "Bar" Trivia, Celibacy

Daily Double #1: $1600 Civil Servants. Phil ($8200 to Brian's $11,800 and Pam's $5600) fronts $3200. Clue: the UK's civil service is based on the bureaucracy of this company that existed from 1600 until 1858. Phil's guess: "What is the Hudson's Bay Company?" Correct response: What is the British East India Company? Phil drops to $5000.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Celibacy. Pam ($12,800 to Phil's $13,800 and Brian's $13,000) goes for $2000. Clue: this 20th C. leader wrote, "for me the observance of... Brahmacharya has been full of difficulties". Pam's guess: "Who is Gandhi?" Correct for $14,800.

End of Round:
Pam - $14,800
Phil - $11,000
Brian - $12,600

In round 3, the winner is guaranteed $30,000, while non-winners receive $15,000 each. So judging from the scores, all three are playing for the $30K.

Final Jeopardy! Category: 20th Century Authors. Answer: born of Norwegian descent in 1916, he was given the first name of a famous Norwegian at the time. Correct response: Who was Roald Dahl?

Phil's question: Who is Caldwell? (WRONG) Wager: $3000. Final score: $8000.
Brian's question: Who is Ibsen? (WRONG) Wager: $12,600. Final score: $0.
Pam's question: Who is Roald Dahl? (RIGHT) Wager: $10,401. Final score: $25,201.

Once again, it's America's trivial sweetheart with the W after a lack of a poker face on which Alex called her. She takes another $30,000, a three-game take of $82,201, and a spot alongside Brad Rutter in the semifinal.

Looks like Steve got a little greedy, as Brad backs into a semifinal slot with another $30,000, giving him $65,000 so far. "I can't believe it!"

The quarterfinals continue tomorrow.
