You may recognize the fro from Alex Jacob’s appearances on televised poker programming from back in the day—specifically from his victory in the 2006 United States Poker Championship when he was just 21 years old.
Well, television audiences are getting a new look at Alex Jacob as he is crushing the competition on Jeopardy. Jacob’s victory on Monday marked his second in a row, and he is returning Tuesday to see if he can pull off the three-peat.
Jacob’s Jeopardy total after two days of $49,600 pales in comparison to the $2,603, 701 he has amassed in poker tournament winnings according to The Hendon Mob, but his hourly rate on the popular game show is much higher.
