James Holzhauer, a former online poker enthusiast and sports betting pro from Las Vegas, made waves when he went on an epic run on Jeopardy! earlier in the year with a 32-game winning streak. Holzhauer recently won the annual Tournament of Champions. He will also appear at the 2019 partypoker LIVE Caribbean Poker Party in the Bahamas with a special trivia event at the Baha Mar Casino.

There's so much James Holzhauer news that we really do not know where to start! Let's start with the poker-related news involving the Jeopardy superstar. If you don't know, Holzhauer will be a part of the festivities at partypoker's 2019 Caribbean Poker Party.

The 2019 Caribbean Poker Party will take place at the Baha Mar Casino in Nassau, Bahamas. If you loathed Atlantis and the PCA, but still love the sea, sand and crystal blue waters of the Caribbean, then you're in luck because the Baha Mar Casino is a nifty change of venue from the overrated Atlantis.

The Baha Mar Casino will host the annual Caribbean Poker Party between November 15 and November 24. partypoker ran satellites all year round for their big blowout in the Bahamas. And now it's here with 17 events!

The Caribbean Poker Party will also be a stop on the partypoker LIVE Millions tour. The marquee event, also known as Event #7 MILLIONS World Bahamas, has a $10,000 buy-in and $10 million guaranteed prize pool. There's also a $25K High Roller and a special $1,100 buy-in Millions Mini Main Event that has a $1 million guaranteed prize pool.

James Holzhauer will be a part of a special trivia event on Monday, November 18 at Baha Mar. He'll also be playing in the MILLIONS World Bahamas Main Event on Tuesday. Holzhauer and partypoker ambassador Mike Sexton will team up and take on other trivia geeks.

"Join us for a night of fun with 'Jeopardy James' Holzhauer – the greatest quiz game guru of all time!" said Mike Sexton. "After the reaction to James when he played as my tag team partner at the WSOP in Vegas this year we know that there are lots of poker players out there who would love to take him on. Do they have a chance? We have deliberately added a team element as we suspect nobody will have a chance playing him one-on-one in a quiz competition."

Rob Yong, owner of Dusk Till Dawn, said he would match any donations from players during the event that will be collected in Hurricane Dorian Charity Donation Holding Tanks. All proceeds will help out hurricane victims.

And now onto fun and games.

James Holzhauer crushed jeopardy! with a 32-game wining streak with an unorthodox style (similar to the Forrest Bounce) that tilted purists, yet ended up being the proper way to play in the game theory department.

Holzhauer's run ended at 32 and he never had a chance to come close to matching Ken Jennings' overall record with 74 consecutive victories in 2004.

Holzhauer returned to action this past week with the annual Jeopardy Tournament of Champions. Holzhauer advanced to the finals against his nemesis, Emma Boettcher. Emma, a librarian from Chicago, was the only other contestant to pick off Holzhauer in 33 games. Holzhauer won the rematch and shipped the 2019 TOC for a $250,000 score.

Well, now fans will finally get to see the huge moment everyone has been waiting for. The three greatest Jeopardy contestants will meet in a special prime-time event airing on January 7 featuring Holzhauer, Brad Rutter and Ken Jennings.

Rutter is the all-time money winner and an old school champion that never got to truly put his skills on display because he appeared on the TV show at a time when champions were capped at five wins. Rutter won five shows in October 2000 and later on won the Tournament of Champions in 2001. He won the first-ever Million Dollar Masters in 2002. He made another appearance at the Ultimate Tournament of Champions in 2005 and smoked the field there. He binked $1 million and became the all-time money winner. In total, Rutter banked $4.8 million in cash and prizes including vehicles.

Ken Jennings went on his insane run back in 2004. He has $3.5 million in total Jeopardy earnings with $2.5 million won during his 74-game winning streak. Jennings picked up another million in various other Jeopardy events such as the Ultimate Tournament of Champions.
