Fedor Holz on social media:

My guest today is, indisputably, one of the greatest players to ever sit down at a poker table. He came onto the scene like a hurricane and swept away anyone and everyone in his path to being the number one ranked poker player in the world.

And then, equally as abruptly, decided to call it a day and retire.  

All before the age of 26. 

Today I am joined by Fedor Holz. 

Fedor, originally from Germany, has absolutely dominated both live and online poker tournaments during his career. He’s earned more than $40 million, taking down several multi-million dollar cashes along the way. 

He has a WSOP bracelet and his WSOP circuit results as listed on WSOP.com show him with 12 cashes totaling just over $11.9 million.

Among those are:

– A 1st place finish in the High-Roller for One Drop, $111,111 buy-in, for $4.9m + his bracelet

– A 2nd place finish in The Big One for One Drop, $1m buy-in, for $6m 

He’s ranked as #1 on the all-time money list for Germany, and 8th in the world.  

He was ranked as the #1 poker player in the world in 2016 as well as being ranked #1 in the world for online poker in 2014 and 2015.
