"Quarterfinals: Cuthbertson/Slaven/McManus" - May 12

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.

JOHN CUTHBERTSON
Investment analyst
San Diego
Won $37,900
ROBERT SLAVEN
Technical product specialist
Surrey, BC
Won $51,201
APRIL McMANUS
Homemaker
Hertfordshire, England
Won $42,801

Jeopardy! categories: Literary Terms, Sitcom Neighbors, Communications, CNN25 International News, Government & Politics, Backwords.

Daily Double: $600 Communication. April ($2000 to Robert's $4000 and John's $1800): "Oh... let's go for it. I'll bet it all." Far be it to editorialize this, but... Good call. The clue: the 2-way field radio developed by Don Hings for bush pilots in 1937 soon got this snappier name. April's guess: "What are walkie-talkies?" Correct for the doubler, $4000.

End of Round:
John - $4200
Robert - $6600
April - $5800

Double Jeopardy! categories: On the Map, Top 40 Musical Contractions, Women Photographers, Didn't You Get Your Invitation?, Common Bonds, Back Words.

Video Daily Double #1: $2000 On the Map. John (tied with April's $5800 to Robert's $9000) fronts $3000. Clue, delivered by Sarah: on a map of the Pacific, the symbol seen here indicates this feature, which shares its name with a nearby island. John's guess: "What is the Marianas Trench?" Correct for $8800.

Daily Double #2: $1200 Didn't You Get Your Invitation? April ($11,000 to Robert's $13,800 and Grace's $4800) goes $3000. Clue: Westminster Abbey, Nov. 20, 1947. April's guess: "What is the christening of Prince Charles?" Correct response: What is the wedding of Elizabeth II and Prince Philip? "I should've known that!" Well, you didn't. And now you're at $8000, BUT there is a silver lining, as you can see...

Scores as they stand going to break:
John - $10,800
Robert - $15,000
April - $7200

In round 3, the winner is guaranteed $30,000, while non-winners receive $15,000 each. Now if you notice, I said "as they were going to break." Because of a snap judgment research from the line judges per a response in the Back Words category, here are the scores now...

End of Round:
John - $12,800
Robert - $15,000
April - $11,200

It's no longer Robert's game to win.

Final Jeopardy! Category: Literary Musical Theatre. Answer: songs in this 1956 show include "Oh, Happy We", "You Were Dead, You Know" & "The Best of All Possible Worlds". Correct response: What is Candide?

April's question: What is Voltaire Candide? (RIGHT) Wager: $11,100. Final score: $22,300.
John's question: What is Candide? (RIGHT) Wager: $9601. Final score: $22,401.
Robert's question: What is Our Town? (WRONG) Wager: $10,601. Final score: $4399.

Final Jeopardy! decides it again. The game is over for Robert, a strong contender, as was April. But it's John Cuthbertson coming from nowhere to win with another $30,000, giving him a total thus far of $67,900 and a berth in the Super Six, as he awaits to face Brad Rutter, Pam Mueller, and Frank Spangenberg.

Two more seats. One of them is filled tomorrow.
