Holzhauer, who lives in Las Vegas, returns to the popular television game Monday night after two weeks off the air. He was absent due to the show’s annual teachers tournament. Holzhauer will resume his bid to continue his winning streak in hopes of beating Jennings’ 74 game streak and $2.5 million in winnings. So far, Holzhauer has won nearly $1.7 million in 22 games.
