James Holzhauer – a professional gambler from Las Vegas – is taking the Jeopardy! world by storm. The 34-year-old has managed to crash through the million-dollar ceiling in a mere 14 days, and he has his sights on Ken Jennings's legendary $2.52 million haul. His meteoric success hasn't gone unnoticed among the stable of former successful Jeopardy! champions. Many of them have taken to social media to root on the latest game show phenom, all while pointing out just how spectacular Holzhauer is doing.
Past winners like Jennings, Roger Craig, Buzzy Cohen, and more have all taken note of not only how much Holzhauer is winning, but also the smart ways the pro gambler is playing with those winnings.
