Top One-Day Regular Play Totals

Here is a list of every known game where a contestant scored at least $40,000 in a regular-play game of Jeopardy! ($20,000 before the dollar values were doubled in November 2001.) They do not take into account tournament or special games; a table from The Final Wager does have a number of those totals.
