It's been a wild, sizzling, sensational 24-hour period for Fedor Holz. The "retired" pro from Germany took down a WSOP Online $25K bracelet event at GGPoker on Sunday for a cool million and his second-career bling. Then on Monday at PokerStars, Holz heads-up chopped WCOOP Event #25-H Super Higher Roller for $515,293.


There's hot and then there's Fedor Holz hot. Some people run good, and others run phenomenally awesome. Fedor Holz is in that supreme category of sheer excellence. Fedor Holz won a bracelet and a million bucks on Sunday, and then continued his run good on Monday, when the German he banked another half-million chopping a High Roller.

2020 WSOP Online Event #79 $25,000 Heads Up NL monster event at GGPoker attracted 127 runners. This heads-up battle against the top specialists and high ballas in the world generated a prize pool worth $3.1 million. Only the top eight places, or the quarterfinals paid out. All of the best slices of the cheesecake went to the top two places with over $1 million set aside to the champion.

The final four the HU High Roller resumed on Sunday. GG Ambassador Fedor Holz advanced to the Final Four and was seeking his second piece of WSOP hardware.

The poker gods were smiling upon Holz. He picked off Sergi Reixach in the semifinals to advance to the finals.

It was Germany and Brazil heads up for the bracelet in Event #79. Brunno Botteon tried to win yet another bracelet for Brazil but he ran into the sizzling hot Fedor Holz. Holz mowed him down like so many others before. Because when you're on a heater like Holz, it doesn't matter what you do because he's going to steamroll you and everything else in his path.

For a runner-up finish, Brunno Botteon banked $622,300. Not too shabby, eh?

Holz earned a payout worth $1.077 million and he added a second bracelet to his collection. In 2016, Holz shipped the $111,111 One Drop High Roller to win his first bracelet and nearly $5 million.

One lucky staker won $130K for having a piece of Holz.

Over at the 2020 World Championship of Online Poker at PokerStars, the $25K buy-in WCOOP Event #25-H attracted 106 entries and a prize pool worth $2.6 million. Only the top 13 places paid out with almost $600K set aside to the champion.

When Fedor 'CrownUpGuy' Holz and Adrian Mateos got heads-up, they decided to chop the money. Holz walked away with $515K for the chop. Not too shabby, bruh?

In case you're counting, Fedor Holz won over $1.5 million playing online poker in the last 24 hours.

The retired life suits him... well.
