"Semifinals: Rutter/Miller/Cuthbertson - Part 2" - May 19

We started with 135 players fighting for 45 slots. Then we threw in nine of Jeopardy!'s best for fun, whittling the field to 18. Now we're down to the six best - Brad Rutter, the Million Dollar Master; Pam Mueller, the lady of the bunch; Frank Spangenberg, the living legend; John Cuthbertson, the underdog; Chris Miller, the newbie; and Jerome Vered, the guy everyone likes. Two of these players will go on to next week's finals against the reining King of Quiz, Ken Jennings. At stake: $2,000,000 for the winner, $500,000 for the first runner-up, and $250,000 for the third-place finisher.

Today, the final card is set.

Daily Double #2: $800 Author! Arthur!. Brad ($16,200 over John's $3200 and Chris' $7800), the only one to control the board after achieving some ethereal Zen state, goes $3200. Clue: it's no mystery; he was knighted in 1902 for his work defending British policy in the Boer War. Brad's guess: "Who is Arthur Conan Doyle?" Correct for $19,400.

It was over when Brad got a hold of the board, riding it for all its worth. He moves on with $50,000 today, $115,000 total. Chris leaves with $93,844, while John takes home $97,900.

So there you have it... Jerome Vered, Brad Rutter, and Ken Jennings... And the only things that separates these three from a $2 million payday are three days and each other... The tripleheader for all that cheddar NEXT WEEK!
