"But I count my blessings that I own at least one Jeopardy! distinction that Holzhauer can't touch: I appeared on the show before the dawn of social media". He is now on pace to break Ken Jennings' all-time Jeopardy record for winning $2.4 million over 74 shows.
After 26 straight wins, Holzhauer now stands at $1,991,135 in prize money.
Holzhauer was close to the $2 million mark, but alas, it wasn't enough.
He has the second longest winning streak in the show's history and the second highest winnings in regular season play - behind only Ken Jennings, who won a total of $2,520,700 over the course of 74 games in 2004.

"Even casual fans of the show have probably heard by now how Holzhauer is doing it: He's a sports bettor who feels supremely comfortable wagering aggressively, and he cannily plays the game board from the bottom up, starting with the highest dollar values and amassing cash before the Daily Doubles have been found and while his poor opponents are still finding their feet", Jennings explained in the piece.
But as he had done 25 previous times, Holzhauer got the victory, defeating challenger Nate Scheffey, a technology consultant from NY, by only $5,400 with a total of $52,108. When Holzhauer came along, he began averaging more than the standing record, fully breaking it on April 17 with winnings of $131,127. He averages $76,582 per episode.
