An average of 2.8693 5+-time champions (standard deviation 1.1502).

- Today’s one-day total was the 5th-highest one-day total of all time. James now holds the top five one-day totals and six of the top eight.
- James is now in third place all-time in total Jeopardy! winnings (including tournaments).
- As James’ performances stay closer to the mean and his variance decreases, the model believes that outlier performances are less likely and his win percentage increases accordingly.
- With James being incorrect on the first clue of today’s match, Liz Haigney Lynch’s record of seeing 179 consecutive clues without being incorrect remains intact.
- With $436,891, James has broken the record for most amount of money won on a single taping day. The previous record, $332,429, was set last week by James. The pre-James record was $221,200, set by Ken Jennings on July 19-23, 2004 (games 34 through 38 of his run).
