The previous record was $30,000 less than what Holzhauer claimed Tuesday: a $77,000 win by Roger Craig on September 19, 2010, according to a release by the show.

His final wager was carefully chosen so that he could end up with exactly $110,914, a number he has admitted references his daughter's birthday of November 9, 2014. Overall, Holzhauer has won $244,365 in four games. He'll face two new challengers Wednesday. He also put $38,314 on Final Jeopardy.

The show said in a news release that James Holzhauer won the game with a total of $110,914.

James Holzhauer, 34, claimed the jackpot in his fourth consecutive night as victor.
