- Austin’s single-game total of $69,000 is the third-highest of all time, after Roger Craig’s $77,000 on September 14, 2010 and Ken Jennings’ $75,000 on July 23, 2004.
- Combined with his win yesterday of $65,600, Austin has earned $134,600 over his last two wins; this an all-time record earning for back-to-back wins.
- Austin’s 6-day total of $257,700 is the highest of all time of any player through 6 games, surpassing Roger Craig’s $230,200.
- $34,000 is, to the best of my knowledge, the largest Final Jeopardy! wager in the history of the show.
