In just the last three weeks, German wunderkind Fedor Holz won over $5 million in High Roller events. In late December, Holz took down the WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas for a $1.58 million. And earlier this week, Holz kicked off the new year in the Philippines by winning $3.4 million at the $200K Triton Super High Roller Cali Cup in Manila.

Fedor Godzilla
Can anyone stop Fedor Holz? He's won $5 million over the last three weeks. The young German is en fuego...

Hold on a second... $5 million in three weeks? Is anyone drug testing this kid?


I think Godzilla in German means “Fedor Holz.” Or maybe it's the other way around?


Fedor Holz is barely 22 years old. How can anyone this young, be this good? He's either an alien, or he's eating handfuls of the fictional brain-enhancing drug NZT-48 from the Bradley Cooper film Limitless.


Or maybe's he's really that fucking good?


Holz is currently fifth on the all-time German money list with $7.3 million in live tournament earnings. Tobias Reinkemeier holds the top spot with $10.8M, and with the torrid way Holz is running, Tobias might be second by the end of the month.


Only Deutsche Bank knows how much money Holz has won as an online wunderkind. During a stretch between April 2014 and April 2015, Holz earned over $2.8 million online, which included winning the 2014 WCOOP Main Event for $1.3 million.


Holz is a leaving a wake of destruction wherever he goes. Holz kicked off 2015 with a couple of scores in Super High Roller events. At the EPT Monte Carlo.,Holz walked away with almost $750K after cashing in a pair of SHRs. Last summer, Holz played in his first-ever WSOP in Las Vegas because he was finally 21 years old. For a rookie at his first WSOP, Holz posted two decent-sized cashes for over $250K each… he final tabled a six-handed event and went on a mega-deep run in the Main Event. Holz's epic run ended when he busted in 25th place.


In December, Holz capped off his best year as a pro (he's been playing in Europe since he was 18) by winning the WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas event. First place paid out nearly $1.6M and Holz bested a tough field that included the usual cast of characters lurking around at high roller events. Despite the swanky score in Vegas, Holz didn't get all fat and jolly around the holidays. He flew out to Manila to the Solaire Casino to play in the peculiarly named Triton Super High Roller Cali Cup.

Holz is off to a sizzling start in 2016. What is his next target? Will Holz light up the PCA and the Bahamas? Or maybe he's going to just destroy the Aussie Millions?
