CULVER CITY, California (AP) — A 34-year-old professional sports gambler from Las Vegas won more than $110,000 on “Jeopardy!” on Tuesday, breaking the record for single-day cash winnings.

The show said in a press release that James Holzhauer won the episode with a total of $110,914. The previous record of $77,000 was set by Roger Craig in 2010.

Tuesday’s win was the fourth consecutive victory for Holzhauer, whose winnings total more than $244,000. He will face two new challengers Wednesday.

“Jeopardy!” host Alex Trebek revealed in March that he was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer but said he intends to fight the disease and keep on working. The episode that aired Tuesday was taped Feb. 11.

Comments
DO now you insult Jeopardy. You couldn’t win fifty bucks on this show, even if you were up against opponents just as dumb as you. How is Jeopardy “a watered down kiddy show?” You are a negative rude punk with serious mental problems. Clean up your dirty act.
