Jeopardy! Champ James Holzhauer Ends Winning Streak
Jun 04 2019
The sports gambler from Las Vegas has been racking up winnings at a never-before-seen pace on the popular game show hosted by Alex Trebek, almost doubling the previous standard for single-day earnings.
For those who haven't been keeping up, the professional sports gambler's success was not about how long he lasted, it was about how much he made while he was there. It airs at 7 p.m. on KATU (though the episodes always start a few minutes earlier than 7, so set your DVR or tune in accordingly). She answered correctly to get to $23,400 and forced Holzhauer to play catch up from there.
It would appear that Boettcher won by playing the same high-risk strategy as Holzhauer - and beating him at it.
