                        James Holzhauer is raking in the big bucks on "Jeopardy!" during his record-breaking run, but the professional sports gambler admitted that he’s lost a boatload of cash before, too.

                        The reigning champ revealed on Wednesday’s episode that the most money he's ever lost on a sports wager was about $20,000 in his hometown of Las Vegas, one of the biggest gambling meccas in the world.

                        "Where you married at the time or single?" host Alex Trebek asked.

                        "Single," Holzhauer replied as the crowd erupted in laughter. 

                        Trebek responded: "Did those numbers go down once you got married?"

                        Holzhauer admitted that he doesn't discuss his winnings or losses with his wife "until the end of the (sports) season," adding that it's "better that way."

                        "It relieves a great deal of stress in the household," Trebek quipped.

                        Twenty thousand dollars seems like a drop in the bucket compared to Holzhauer's winning total of $2,323,971 on "Jeopardy," following his 30th victory Wednesday. 

                        He is less than $200,000 away from breaking Ken Jennings' all-time "Jeopardy!" total of $2,520,700, a record for non-tournament play.

                        However, it appears Holzhauer is concerned that his massive success on "Jeopardy!" could affect his profession in the future.

                        "I’m sure many of you have wondered what the contestants and I talk about at the end of the program," Trebek said at the top of Wednesday's episode. 

                        "On yesterday’s show, James was worried a little bit because he thought that with the $2 and a quarter million he’s already won as a 'Jeopardy!' champion, maybe now the casinos will look at him differently and might not want him gambling in their venues," the legendary host revealed.

                        Trebek continued: "That remains to be determined.”
