"There are big advantages to having a lot of chips early on in a poker tournament," he told the Times. "You can make plays that other people can’t."

Holzhauer, who goes "$1,000-1,000-1,000 whenever I can," said he conceived of the strategy of aiming for the high-value clues "right away."

"You can see as soon as I get control of the board in the first game I’m going for the $1,000 clues whenever I have the opportunity," he said.

Jeopardy Champ James Holzhauer Wins Another $73,000 “They knew the answer, I guessed,” Holzhauer said Wednesday about getting it right on Final Jeopardy.

James Holzhauer ' s historic " Jeopardy !" streak came to an end Monday night -- and it wasn't even a wrong answer that undid him . Holzahauer was very close to breaking the all-time " Jeopardy !" earnings record, but he fell short in his 33rd straight game.

He tells the outlet: "The fact that I win and lose money all the time helps desensitize me, so I can write down $60,000 as the Final Jeopardy wager and not be trembling at the thought of losing that money."

Describing the typical way the game show is played as "too risk-averse," he explained the advantage of his strategy.

"The funny thing is, my strategy actually minimizes the risk of me losing a game," he said. "There’s times in a football game where a team goes for a big TD pass. If you don’t take a risk like that, you’re not going to win."

Holzhauer's strategy is backed by knowledge he said he picked up from children's literature.

"I’ve found that in an adult reference book, if it’s not a subject I’m interested in, I just can’t get into it," he told the Times. "I was thinking, what is the place in the library I can go to to get books tailored to make things interesting for uninterested readers? Boom. The children’s section."

He crossed the $1 million mark during Tuesday's episode, becoming only the second person in the game show's 35-year history to reach the feat in regular-season (non-tournament) play.
