James Holzhauer, originally from Naperville was pushing a record recently on JEOPARDY! but was finally defeated. It's not all bad, though, because he won buttloads of money.

Holzhauer walks away without the best record for the longest winning streak in JEOPARDY! history (held by Ken Jennings circa 2004) but also adds an extra $2,255,138 to his bank account, beating Jenning's total winnings. I said "extra" because he's a professional sports gambler.

James Holzhauer shared the numerical journey on Twitter.

Naturally, fellow Twitterer and JEOPARDY! King Ken Jennings responded.
