A professional sports gambler out of Las Vegas, Hozhauer says he has used some of the same skills employed betting games as he has playing on the popular quiz show.

He told the New York Times:

There’s a few things. The fact that I win and lose money all the time helps desensitize me, so I can write down $60,000 as the Final Jeopardy wager and not be trembling at the thought of losing that money.

And thinking: “This isn’t a trivia question. It’s a coin flip that’s going to land heads for me a lot more often than it’s going to land tails, so I’m going to bet as much as I can on heads.”

The Vegas books know how good Holzhauer is.

About half the sports books in town won’t take a bet from me. You hope you retain a good relationship with the other half. The other half know I’m a pro, too. I can’t bet as much as a random guy off the street at those places, but they’re willing to take some action from me, at least.

Holzhauer now holds the all top 7 single-game money records.
