Holzhauer started his run by giving Alex Trebek betting advice, telling him to bet on the Lightning to win the Stanley Cup, so he is apparently better at trivia than he is at playing odds.

Tuesday's win was the fourth straight for Holzhauer and brought his winnings total to more than $244,000. That was more than enough to set a new record for single-day cash winnings, the syndicated series said in a press release.

The bill would essentially repeal the repeal of the rules that the Pai FCC approved in the first year of the Trump administration. If the bill "were presented to the President", the White House statement said , "his advisors would recommend that he veto it".


In Tuesday's episode, Holzhauer entered the final round with a total of $72,600, betting $38,314. Holzhauer is clearly brilliant and found a way to make lots of money with that, from wagering on sports to dominating TV game shows.

Before Craig, "Jeopardy" star Ken Jennings held the highest amount won in a single show with $74,000. The question was accompanied by the note "Happy birthday Booger", a salute to his daughter.
