(Newser) – After a two-week hiatus for a teachers' tournament, James Holzhauer was back on Jeopardy! on Monday night doing what he has become famous for: crushing the opposition. The professional gambler won his 23rd straight game, adding $89,229 to his haul for a total of $1,780,237, the New York Post reports. Before his amazing winning streak, that would have been a single-game record, but it's now just 9th in the show's Hall of Fame. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an unusual bet on Monday's game, USA Today reports. He tweeted that if Holzhauer lost, he would eat a strawberry for the first time in his life, and broadcast it live on Instagram. (Ken Jennings, whose $2.5 million Jeopardy! record could soon be history, says he's rooting for Holzhauer.)
