What a great story this is and many congratulations to him on doing this. After winning all that money in Poker, it must be great to have a chance on winning more money doing this

I have never seen this program before so not really sure how it works but I think he can continue coming back to earn more money until defeated,hopefully he will use his gambling experience to know when his luck has gone and it is time to leave the table.

I doubt that he still has that much money from his former poker carrier if he is need to go and play Jeopardy on National Television. And currency trading is not a sure thing or a job with security, so he is probably a bit broke now IMO. Especially if he's got caught up in the swiss frank mumbo-jumbo early this year.

I read this news on other pokersite, here in portugal, and its not one, or two, he win 3 or 4 times in a row and make a good profit in that game, beside the game and money, he knew a lot of the questions and a lot of things in that quizz.

Gongratulations for her and he keep playing safe.

Quizgames and especially televised quiz games are just like this though. Getting in is actually plenty harder than getting through. And I think Jeopardy is a real special one because the players have to from questions to the answers here and not vice versa. It's tricky.
