Jeopardy! has seen it’s share of super nerds, but none has ever put on a show like 34-year-old professional gambler/Jeopardy! ringer James Holzhauer, who smashed the previous single day record of $77,000 with $110,914 in one night winnings. His four night win total is a ridiculous $244,365.
He really made bank with his perfect Daily Double bets of $14,600 and $25,000, then capped things off with a $38,314 Final Jeopardy winner. This combination of wagering experience and ridiculous knowledge should be illegal, or would at least get him banned from the MGM floor.
Watch this sharp play these marks.
