    Once you have won a round through the final jeopardy are your previous winnings still at risk? If he is at 1 million in winnings can he lose it all, or just through the current round?

    Each day is a new game, and you start at 0 for that day.

    So at this point he has made enough that he can take as much risk as he wants. It's just extra money.

    He'll be back in November. The show just announced 15 top players will be back for its Tournament of Champions, including him and the lady who beat him last month.
