"Eopard! James" Holtzhaver won $ 250,000 as winner of the Games Championship against Emma Boetcher and Francois Barcombe. Now he's grossed over $ 2.7 million in shows this year.
"I have said all along that Emma is a great player of all time and I am proud that this level of competitor took her to defeat me," Holtzhawer said in a statement on Friday. "Now the world sees that I have not justified myself. But the whole point of TOC is to play the best of the best. Emma and Francois have certainly proven that they belong in the final three."
His winnings make him the third highest winner in show history. Brad Rutter is the highest-grossing showman of all time with over $ 4.6 million, followed by Ken Jennings with $ 3.3 million.
