Thirteen is usually an unlucky number – but not for James Holzhauer.
Holzhauer won again on “Jeopardy!” Monday night.
At $942,738, he is closing in on Ken Jennings’ record for most money won in a single season.
Jennings, a “Jeopardy!” legend who walked away with $2,520,700 after his 74-game winning streak , is now weighing in on the latest player’s run.
Jennings said he would never have the stomach for Holzhauer’s large wagers during the daily doubles.
Holzhauer, a native of Naperville, Ill. who now lives in Las Vegas, spoke to ESPN about who might win a hypothetical match with Jennings.
“I’m good on the buzzer, but Ken is better. At a straight trivia test, I might take Ken,” Holzhauer said.
The 34-year-old professional sports gambler goes for win number 14 Tuesday night.
