Fedor Holz crowned new king of the GPI Rankings

Early weeks of WSOP shake up GPI rankings

With the WSOP now in full swing, players are making moves at the top of the GPI rankings. Steve O’Dwyer had enjoyed a lengthy spell at the top, but with Holz hitting some serious form in the last 6 months, in addition to performing consistently well in the last couple of years, there has been a change at the top. The Super High Roller Bowl at the end of May fuelled Holz‘s climb up the rankings, when he finished 2nd place for $3.5 million. He followed this up with two 1st places in the Aria Super High Roller Series, along with two smaller WSOP cashes to knock O’Dwyer off the top. He will undoubtedly be looking over his shoulder though, as Anthony Zinno has moved into 2nd and Jason Mercier is making significant strides forward with a 1st and 2nd place at this year’s WSOP already.

Fedor Holz – Triton Super High Roller

Fedor Holz has enjoyed a remarkable rise to the top of the poker world, having won a WCOOP Main Event online, a WPT Alpha8 High Roller title, a Triton Super High Roller, and many other tournaments along the way.

Mercier and Holz bracelet betting

Holz made it known via his twitter account that Mercier’s bracelet win in the $10K 2-7 Single Draw event had cost him a lot of money, with the figure later being clarified by Holz as $200,000.

With Mercier seemingly threatening to win a bracelet in every event he plays at the moment, Holz could yet lose more money, as he apparently has a $100,000 per bracelet bet going on too. He could of course win one himself and recoup his losses, as there are many events still to play.
