Biography

Fedor Holz is a German poker player and WSOP bracelet winner. He is also a GGPoker Ambassador.

Over the course of his career he has amassed over $32 million in lifetime earnings and sits top of the German all-time money list. He has since embarked on a career outside of poker, including the mind coaching app Primed Mind and the poker-teaching platform Pokercode.

Biography

Holz shot to prominence in September 2014, after winning the PokerStars WCOOP Main Event. At his first World Series of Poker in 2015, he finished third in the highly competitive $10,000 Six-Handed Championship and followed that up with a 25th place finish in the Main Event.

Many poker fans wish for the 2016 that Holz enjoyed. But in fact, his stellar 2016 began in December 2015, winning the World Poker Tour Alpha8 Las Vegas for $1.5 million. Barely a month later, he was winning another WPT Super High Roller in the Philippines, this time for over $3 million.

After further cashes at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, Aussie Millions and European Poker Tour, Holz returned to Las Vegas ahead of that year’s World Series of Poker.

By way of warm-up, he finished second in the $300,000 Super High Roller Bowl for $3.5 million. He followed that up with his first WSOP bracelet in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop, defeating Dan Smith to win $4,981,775. But Holz wasn’t done, heading to Barcelona to win another Super High Roller, this time for another $1.4 million.

Holz's retirement to focus on business interests saw the young phenom go out on a high, but was a continued presence on the Triton Super High Roller Series, adding cashes in Montenegro and Macau. He also finished second in the $1,000,000 buy-in Big One for One Drop in 2018 for $6 million - the largest cash of his career to date.

In May 2020, it was announced that Holz would become a GGPoker Ambassador.

Following his unveiling as a GGPoker Ambassador, Holz added a second bracelet to his trophy cabinet, winning the$25,000 Heads-up on GGPoker.com in September 2020 for a cool $1,077,250.
