    He still has a LONG way to go to beat Brad Rutter's all-time total of over $4M, or Ken Jennings' total of 70+ consecutive wins.

    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.

    Funny answer on tonight's Jeopardy:

    They were asking for the "Boss" politician who ran the Democratic political machine in New York in the 19th century (Boss Tweed). Somebody buzzed in and said "Boss Hogg".
