Danger! Legend-elect James Holzhauer has packed an incredible 32nd straight win in the legendary game show – with less than $ 60,000 of the record ever.

The professional gambler in Las Vegas ended his perfect week at a peak and earned $ 79,663 in prizes to get his prize potential at $ 2,462,216.

The 34-year-old remains close to reaching Ken Jennings' $ 2.5 million record that has been held since 2004, with only $ 58.84 still to go.

Jennings won a staggering $ 2,520,700 during a mind-bending 74-game winning streak.

Holzhauer, with an average of $ 76,944 per game, is on its way to topple the total Monday after just 33 shows.

In winning the victories, he applied a new – but risky – strategy that matches his job in Las Vegas.

He often focuses first on the valuable questions to collect money quickly, and then, without hesitation, disputes his ability to give the correct answer when he arrives at a special Daily Double question.

Holzhauer and Jennings are the only two players who have ever reached the $ 2 million mark.

It took Holzhauer only 27 episodes to reach the milestone. His remarkable run has earned him many admirers, including Jennings.

Jennings called Holzhauer & # 39; s run & # 39; amazing & # 39; at Good Morning America this week.

& # 39; I have been thinking that someone would run on this album for 15 years, because I always knew it could be done & # 39 ;, Jennings said Tuesday. & # 39; I was there. I saw it happen. What I didn't expect was that someone could make a run on the cash register, about a third of the time. & # 39;

Holzhauer credits his career with helping & # 39; desensitize & # 39; him when it comes to making big bets.

When he spoke to Northeastern University Magazine in a Q&A, Holzhauer discussed other careers he had considered before engaging in full-time gambling.

& # 39; It might be fun to write about sports or life with a gambling lens, or to work for a professional team. But I don't think I want anything better than what I do now, & he said. & # 39; I learned very early on that emotions don't play a role in gambling and that you have to do your best to make a profit. Most people never take that step. & # 39;
