Steve Wiebe had reclaimed his Donkey Kong Jr. crown after having it stolen by Oklahoma-based Mark Kiehl last fall.

According to Twin Galaxies, Wiebe scored 1,190,400 points in the game on Valentine’s Day (via Joystiq).

He achieved a high score of 1,139,800 back in April of last year, only to be beaten the following fall.

Now, he is back on top, thanks to playing on Valentine’s Day instead of buttering up the wife a bit.

Good show, Steve. Just don’t let Billy Mitchell find out. He may decide to switch Kong games just for giggles.
