"Quarterfinals: Zielenski/Miller/Djang" - May 13

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: Geometry, NFL Home Stadiums, We're Gonna Make You Wine, Middle Earth, Sing a Song of Sing Sing, 3-Letter the Better.

Daily Double: $800 Middle Earth. Lan ($1800 to Chris' $2800 and Matt's $1200) bets $1600. The clue: they're the 3 South American countries through which the Equator passes. Lan's guess: "What are Ecuador, Colombia & Venezuela?" You forgot Brazil. Lan drops to $200.

End of Round:
Matt - $200
Chris - $3400
Lan - $2200

Double Jeopardy! categories: CNN25 People; Sean Penn, This is Your Movie; Democratic Presidential Contenders 2004, Universities by Alumni, Poem & Poet; Be a "Hep" Cat.

Daily Double #1: $1200 Democratic Presidential Contenders 2004. Matt ($1800 to Chris' $7800 and Lan's $5800) goes all-in. Clue: a congressman from 1977 to 2005, he was known for his firm opposition to NAFTA. Matt's guess: "Who is Gephardt?" Matt doubles up to $3600.

Daily Double #2: $1600 Universities By Alumni. Lan ($7800 to Chris' $13,000 and Matt's $7200) goes $1800. Clue: mathematician John Nash, Donald Rumsfeld. Lan's guess: "What is Princeton?" Correct for $9600.

End of Round:
Matt - $8400
Chris - $18,200
Lan - $9600

Chris is hoping that he'll come out on top with at least $30,000 for this game, while the other two are playing for that amount. Should they fail, they will each get $15,000 for their efforts.

Final Jeopardy! Category: National Anthems. Answer: Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore wrote the national anthems of these two countries. Correct response: What are India & Bangladesh?

Matt's question: What are India & Sri Lanka? (WRONG) Wager: $8400. Final score: $0.
Lan's question: What are India & Sri Lanka? (WRONG) Wager: $8650. Final score: $950.
Chris' question: What are India & Bangladesh? (RIGHT) Wager: $1001. Final score: $19,201.

It was a two-man race, but Chris has the only correct response, giving him $30,000 more, $73,844 total, and a slot with Brad Rutter, Pam Mueller, Frank Spangenberg, and John Cuthbertson in the quarterfinal.

One more slot. Will it go to Dan Melia, Michael Daunt, or Jerome Vered? It's an instant classic, Monday!
