Two Chicago-area players are facing off in the Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions, which starts Feb. 13.

The tournament brings together the top Jeopardy! players from the past season. This year's group includes Fenwick High School teacher Colby Burnett, who won $100,000 in the Teacher's Tournament, and Ashok Poozhikunnel, an underwriter from Wheaton, Ill., who won $69,002 during the regular season.

Burnett will be playing Feb. 14 and Poozhikunnel plays his quarter-final match on Feb. 19. I played in the 2011 Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions and have one piece of advice for these players - threesome will never be the correct answer. Or question, since on Jeopardy! the answer is the question.

Anyway, the winner has already been determined. Here's hoping this group of fierce competitors will stay in touch in the same way I have with those I competed against. #tocove, baby!
