James Holzhauer continued his Jeopardy dominance Thursday night with another $80,615 win and the correct answer in the final round: Glass Menagerie.


Holzhauer now holds the title of second-longest winning streak in Jeopardy! history.

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.”

Holzhauer has now outmatched Julia Collins, who completed a 20-game streak in 2014 and is the winningest woman in “Jeopardy!” history, and David Madden, who notched 19 straight wins in 2005.
