Jeopardy! Champ James Holzhauer Possibly Just One Win Away From Career Winnings Record

James Holzhauer has done very little that's wrong on the game show Jeopardy!. Now he is perhaps one victory away from the career winnings record. All he has to do is play an average game on Monday.

Holzhauer won $79,633 during his 32nd-consecutive win on Friday, giving him a career total winnings of $2,462,216 — which is second all-time behind Ken Jennings' $2,520,700 in 2004.

Holzhauer, who averages just under $77,000 per game, needs just $58,485 to break the winnings mark for regular-season games. He holds all top-10 daily winning marks for the game. And before he first appeared on the show, the best daily mark in Jeopardy! history had been $77,000.

Here's how to watch Jeopardy!.

Holzhauer, a professional sports gambler from Las Vegas, not only has a prowess in winning and getting the clues right, he has an approach to the game that's seldom-used.

As returning champion, he starts the Jeopardy! round by going for the $1,000 squares — or clues — in each category and builds a respectable lead before landing the Daily Double. And in that opening round, the gambler goes all-in, and odds of him nailing it have been near-perfect.

The same happens in the Double Jeopardy! round with him starting at the highest values — $2,000 in this case — while building his bank and waging a large sum. By the time Final Jeopardy! rolls around, Holzhauer most times has a lead so big that he can still wager more than half his bank and still win the game even if he gets the final clue wrong.

But he's only missed one Final Jeopardy! in 32 games, according to host Alex Trebek prior to Friday's final question.

Even if Holzhauer passes Jennings next week on the all-time winnings list, he still has a way to go to pass the former champ in all-time wins, as Jennings amassed his totals over 74-consecutive wins that began late in the 2003 season.

Jennings and Holzhauer lead the rest of the top-10 by a gargantuan margin. For example, behind Holzhauer's 32 wins is Julia Collins, who won 20 games in 2014. And third in all-time, regular-season career winnings is David Madden who won $439,000 in 2005.

Holzhauer even has an entire page on the Jeopardy! website dedicated to his current streaks.
