A man won over $110,000 on Tuesday night’s episode of Jeopardy.
34-year-old James Holzhauer took home $110,914. That breaks the single-day winnings record on the game show. It was previously $77,000.
Holzhauer is now a four-day champion who has won over $244,000. Holzhauer is a professional sports gambler.
The $110,914 has other significance too. 11/09/14 was the date his daughter was born.
Do you think his job as a professional sports gambler means that his Jeopardy winnings might not last long?
