"Quarterfinals: Whitlock/Veach/Spangenberg" - May 11

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.

SHANE WHITLOCK

Little Rock, AR
Won $24,000 (3/21)
GRACE VEACH
Librarian
Lakeland, FL
Won $49,700
FRANK SPANGENBERG
Police lieutenant

First: Alex plays the six degrees of Pam Mueller - she correctly questioned a Final Jeopardy! answer about Roald Dahl, who was named after Roald Amundsen, who was the namesake for the high school where her father taught.

Jeopardy! categories: Presidents, '70s Sitcoms, Verb First Names, 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, Playboy; I Read the Articles, Too.

Daily Double: $800 Presidents. Shane ($1000 to Frank's $200 and Grace's -$200) bets all of it early. The clue: during his administration, Custer made his last stand. Shane's guess: "Who is Grant?" Correct for the doubler, $2000.

End of Round:
Shane - $4800
Grace - $4800
Frank - $7600

Double Jeopardy! categories: Painters, Women in Sports, CNN25 Science & Technology, Also a Musical Instrument, Bobbing for Poets, "N" the Beginning.

Daily Double #1: $1600 Painters. Frank ($6200 over Shane's $5200 and Grace's $4800) fronts $3000. Clue: this Swiss painter who died in 1940 called his art a line on a walk. Frank's guess: "Who is Clay?" Correct for $9200.

Daily Double #2: $800 Also a Musical Instrument. Shane ($5600 to Frank's $11,200 and Grace's $4800) goes all in for the tie. Clue: Greek muse whose name means "beautiful voice". Shane's guess: "Who is ... Calliope?" "Is that a guess?" "Yes." "You're right." Shane ties Frank's $11,200.

End of Round:
Shane - $18,400
Grace - $10,000
Frank - $17,200

In round 3, the winner is guaranteed $30,000, while non-winners receive $15,000 each.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Famous Pairs. Answer: now meaning nearly identical, these 2 names were applied to rivals Handel & Bononcini in a 1720s British verse. Correct response: What are Tweedle-dee & Tweedle-dum?

Grace's question: What are ? (WRONG) Wager: $10,000. Final score: $0.
Frank's question: What are Tweedledum & Tweedledee? (reversed, but RIGHT) Wager: $17,199. Final score: $34,399.
Shane's question: What are Tit and Tat? (WRONG) Wager: $16,001. Final score: $2399.

Frank cannot believe it. He is in the semi-final! He takes $75,199 into the Super Six, as he awaits to face Brad Rutter and Pam Mueller.

We have one half of the semifinalists set. Who'll make up the other half? The quarterfinals continue tomorrow.
