Poker Champion Alex Jacob Has Won $129,401 on ‘Jeopardy!’

Former poker pro Alex Jacob is now a 5-time champion of the hit U.S. game show “Jeopardy” and he is making quite a name for himself.

Jacob has so far won $129,401 and will appear once again on the show this coming Monday.

The 2006 US Poker Championship-turned day trader has developed a following of sorts along the way with his somewhat “drab” appearance.  Most notably, some “Jeopardy!” observers noted he was wearing the same shirt each night. 

Then again, that could be his lucky shirt.

Go Alex!
