Fedor Holz has earned a second career bracelet on the final day of the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Online Series on GGPoker. The GGPoker Ambassador conquered a field of 127-entrants in Event #79: $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em to win the sliver of gold and $1m first prize.
Holz is a modern-day legend of the felt racking up more than $32.5m in live tournament earnings, and countless millions more playing online multi-table tournaments (MTTs).
The German All-Time #1 Live Tournament Money Earner is one of those strange beasts who seem capable of winning the lot in both realms. He is a multiple PocketFives World #1, and in 2014 he won the World Championships of Online Poker (WCOOP) Main Event for $1.3m.
The last time Holz appeared in an ITM list of a WSOP event came in 2018 when he finished runner-up to Justin Bonomo in the $1m buy-in Big One for One Drop for $6m. Holz defeated Bonomo en route to this win, and the man Bonomo beat for the 2018 $10,000 No Limit Hold’em Heads-Up bracelet, Jason Mcconnon, also had a deep run, making the final eight.
Holz defeated Bruno Botteon in the final bracket. Botteon finished 6/407 in the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em Poker Players Championship. There was also a third deep run in the GGPoker series for Sergi Reixach. The Spaniard made it to the final four in this one, adding to his 7/328 in the $5,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship, and 3/301 in the $10,000 Short Deck No Limit Hold’em Championship.
Here are the results of the last four.
Fedor Holz ($1,077,025) beats Brunno Botteon ($622,300)
Brunno Botteon beats Oktay Kahyaoglu ($311,150)
