Fedor Holz has continued his incredible run, after winning the EPT Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller Title for €1.3 Million.
Forty-four days after announcing his “retirement” in Las Vegas, Holz decided to pass by Barcelona and play one more time probably before he went home. This time Holz had been the last man standing in a field of a 102 entries for the grand slam of a whopping € 1,300,300. Heads-up, he defeated Sam Greenwood, who, despite having an even stack, could not steal a pot from Holz.
Among those who made it in the money, most notable are Stanley Choi (10th, €105,300), reigning EPT Barcelona Main Event champion John Juanda (11th, €105,300) and Eric Seidel, who confirmed that he’s still got the juice in the high Roller circuit by finishing in 9th place.
Nothing seems to stop the snowballing victories of this 23-year old German since he won the $ 100,000 WPT Five Diamond World Poker Classic Alpha8 – No Limit Hold’em High Roller (Event #18) in December 2015.
He had followed it up, a month after, with another victory in the 2016 WPTN Philippines No Limit Hold’em Triton Super High Roller Series. With 2 more triumphs in between, Holz had once again won but this time in the WSOP No Limit Hold’em High Roller for One Drop where he collected a colossal $ 4,981,775. Having won a bracelet and a total of $16 million in a span of 12 months, Holz had actually announced that it was time for him to retire but after a few day, he was claiming another 7 figures.
His incredible winning streak is already part of poker history, but the question remains, will he be retiring this time?
