Winning a total of $131,127 on Wednesday’s episode, he now has a grand total of $697,787 in winnings after 10 straight victories. This dude just can’t lose. He’s got a strategy of betting dollar amounts based on birthdays of friends and family.
The single day record winnings was previously held by Roger Craig with $77,000 and Holzhauer said that he had one goal in mind when coming on Jeopardy!, “I said all along that I wanted to break Roger Craig’s one-game record and I did it.”
