A Jeopardy! contestant on Tuesday broke the show’s record for single-day cash winnings with a whopping total of $110,914. Professional sports gambler James Holzhauer said in a statement: “I said all along that I wanted to break Roger Craig’s one-game record, and I did it!” Craig set the previous record of $77,000 back in September 2010. His record-breaking number of $110,914 holds a special meaning for Holzhauer: his daughter was born on November 9, 2014 — 11/09/14. Today’s (Wednesday) episode will pit him against two new challengers eager to prevent him from scoring a fifth consecutive win.
