James Holzhauer, who garnered national attention this spring on “Jeopardy!” with a prolific run, won the game show’s Tournament of Champions during Friday’s episode, fending off rival Emma Boettcher to capture the $250,000 first prize.

Holzhauer, a 35-year-old Las Vegas sports bettor, won $2.46 million during a 32-game winning streak. That streak ended in early June at the hands of Boettcher, who remains the only contestant ever to beat him.

The rematch began Thursday with the first of two contests in the Tournament of Champions finals, and it wasn’t decided until Final Jeopardy on Friday.

Holzhauer’s career winnings on “Jeopardy!” now total $2,712,216, the third most in the show’s history, behind only Brad Rutter ($4,688,436) and Ken Jennings ($3,370,700).
