If you come in second in Jeopardy do you get to keep your winnings?

The winner of the match gets to keep his winnings, the second place finisher receives a $2000 consolation prize (regardless of how much money he ended the game with) and the third place finisher receives a $1000 consolation prize (regardless of how much money he ended the game with.) If the returning champion does not win his next match, he keeps his winnings from the previous games plus receives either the $2000 or $1000 consolation prize for the current game. In the event of a first-place tie, the two returning champions play their next game against a new third contestant. Imagine the new contestant wins that game. He keeps his winnings and the departing champions get to keep their winnings from previous games plus the respective consolation prizes for the current game.
