Even though he's "retired" Fedor Holz and his training site, Poker Code, signed a deal with GGPoker as the online poker site continues to sign high-profile online players like Elky and Felipe Ramos and big-time ambassadors such as Daniel Negreanu.
Fedor Holz and Poker Code coming to GGPoker! Fedor Holz, a young German that crushed poker so hard a couple of years ago, he retired at a time most people his age maxed out credit cards while learning how to make a bong out of almost anything. But now he's coming out of retirement to play on GGPoker after he signed a deal with the new hotspot for online action.
Holz started Poker Code with Austrian pro Matthias Eibinger. Poker Code was a training site, and who better to learn how to crush the tables than the young Germans that turned poker upside down and sideways 14 times.
Holz, 26, still basks in the warmth of his so-called retirement. He has over $32.6 million in lifetime brick and mortar earnings, plus unknown millions in online earnings.
Holz settled for a runner-up finish at the 2018 World Series of Poker when he finished in second place in the Big One for One Drop. Holz banked $6 million for second place. Not too shabby, eh? In 2016, Holz won his first bracelet with a victory in the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop. Holz banked a tad under $5 million for that sick score.
At the start of the pandemic, GGpoker announced they landed Betrand 'ElkY' Grospellier. Elky and PokerStars were together for 12 years before they separated. He had a rebound sponsorship deal with partypoker for a hot minute before moving on to GGPoker.
Elky might be one of the best online players from the 2000s and they added Holz who had emerged as one of the premier online assassins in the 2010s.
"It's a pleasure to welcome Fedor Holz onto Team GGPoker," said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker. "His passion for the game and success both live and online is truly impressive. We couldn't be happier to welcome Fedor and the entire Pokercode community."
GGPoker recently cut a deal with the World Series of Poker. They are hosting Online WSOP Circuit events called the WSOP Super Circuit Online Series began that had an impressive $100 million in guaranteed prize pools with nearly 600 events.
Last year, Daniel Negreanu finally joined a new site after his grace period with PokerStars ended. GGPoker and Kid Poker seemed like a good fit after they helped him with staking during the 2010 WSOP.
At the start of 2020, Felipe Ramos joined GGPoker. You might remember the days when the kid from Brazil named Mojave obliterated everyone in his path. GGPoker added Ramos because of his savvy skills at the table and his prolific nature on social media. Plus, he's Brazilian which means he has a legion of fans that will follow his pursuits over at GGPoker.
Bryn Kenney tops the all-time money list according to Hendon Mob. The New York pro won over $56 million thanks to his proficiency at hunting sharks at high roller tables all over the planet. GGPoker added Kenney to the mix, which made sense because they can now easily say they have the top all-time tournament in the world along side one of the greatest ambassadors in Kid Poker and a trio of online wizards with Elky, Ramos, and now Holz.
