James Holzhauer returns to Jeopardy!, wins once again

Watercooler

(WIVB) — The champ is back, and still reigning.

James Holzhauer captured his 23rd Jeopardy! victory on Monday night, following a two-week hiatus due to the show’s Teachers Tournament.

Now, the 34-year-old professional gambler from Las Vegas has won a total of $1.7 million.

His winning streak is only the second-best on the show, though. Ken Jennings is still the king of Jeopardy! after winning $2.5 million over 74 games.
