Fedor Holz may be looking to step away from the poker tables in the near future, but he will be a confirmed participant in at least one more event: the latest edition of Celebrity Cash Kings at King's Casino.
Celebrity Cash Kings is a high stakes cash game festival that will take place from Monday, Aug. 15 to Wednesday, Aug. 17 in Europe's largest poker room, located in Rozvadov, Czech Republic. The event will feature a number of cash game tables running, including one that will be streamed online.
The streamed table will initially be no-limit hold'em with €50/€100 blinds, but event organizers have left the possibility open to change to pot-limit Omaha or increase the blinds if all of the players agree.
Confirmed participants at this time include Holz, Dan Cates, Roberto Romanello, Tobias Reinkemeier, Jesper Hougaard, Sam Trickett, Rob Yong, and Jan Peter Jachtmann. Holz, of course, has been the talk of the poker world after an incredible start to 2016 that has seen him bank an astounding $14 million, culminating with his first bracelet in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop at the 2016 World Series of Poker.
“This year’s line-up has a great feel with so many people returning plus others coming to Rozvadov for the very first time," said Leon Tsoukernik of King's Casino. "The famous King hospitality is ready. We welcome all the players but it is particularly nice to see Fedor come back to his roots and a place where it all started for him — we are all very proud how he has risen so fast.”
At the conclusion of the event, all players who wish to head to Barcelona for the first European Poker Tour event of the next season will be provided with a lift via private jet. EPT Barcelona kicks off Aug. 16 with coverage provided right here on PokerNews.
