James Holzhauer - Jeopardy Superstar

James Holzhauer was introduced on Jeopardy as a professional sports gambler.  He has certainly been very successful on the show as he has won $566,000 on his first 8 games putting him in second place in non-tournament winnings behind the legendary Ken Jennings.  He always starts by picking the $1000 or $2000 answer and builds up a big bank as he hits the daily doubles.  He was able to bounce back after missing a few daily doubles in the first round.  All but one of his victories were runaways.

He still has a long way to go to match Ken Jenning's record of 74 victories.  Can he do it?  The key is his picking the daily doubles and getting them right.  Jennings lost game 75 as he missed daily doubles and the final jeopardy answer.

Stay tuned.
