Naperville North alumnus wins $110,914 in one day on 'Jeopardy!'
A Naperville North alumnus has set the single-game record for winnings on "Jeopardy!" -- earning $110,914 on Tuesday's broadcast.
James Holzhauer, a 34-year-old professional sports gambler who now lives in Las Vegas, broke Roger Craig's mark of $77,000 set on Sept. 19, 2010, according to a news release.
"I said all along that I wanted to break Roger Craig's one-game record and I did it," said Holzhauer, who won a National Merit Scholarship as a Naperville North student.
Holzhauer's $110,914 total has a special numerical significance: His daughter was born Nov. 9, 2014, or 11/09/14.
Tuesday's win was Holzhauer's fourth consecutive victory and brought his total earnings to $244,365.
