'Jeopardy!' Contestant James Holzhauer Addresses Game Strategy and Cheating Rumors

By

Fans of the long-running show Jeopardy! have been stunned watching contestant James Holzhauer shatter records in a seemingly unstoppable current 15-game winning streak.The current player is so good that he's being compared to 2004 winner Ken Jennings, who walked away with $2.5 million over the course of 74 consecutive games. 

Some predict the 34-year-old will surpass Ken with his current winnings totaling more than $1 million. So, what makes this Las Vegas sports gambler (for now) unbeatable? 

"I sketched out what I believed to be my optimal strategy for Jeopardy: Play fast, build a stack, bet big, and hope for the best,” James revealed to The Atlantic. “In my mind, playing a seemingly risky game actually minimizes my chances of losing.”
