Ben Sternberg

Season 18 3-time champion: $79,600.

In his 3rd game (#4076, aired 2002-04-29), Ben set a new single-day cash winnings record of $38,400, breaking the previous record of $34,000 set almost 10 years earlier by Jerome Vered in his 4th game (#1794, aired 1992-05-21). (However, Ben's single-day cash winnings record did not top Jerome's record if adjusted for doubled dollar values.) Ben's new record was quickly broken when Jeff Goldfarb won $39,999 in his 1st game (#4122, aired 2002-07-02) just a little over two months later.
