Fedor Holz is a highly successful German professional poker player born July 25, 1993. He started playing poker in his teenage years and became an experienced player in 2012. Holz rose to fame in the poker world during the summer of 2016 when he won several high-roller tournaments and earned millions of dollars in the process.
That summer, he won several high-roller tournaments and made millions of dollars in the process. According to Hendon Mob, a poker tournament tracking website, Fedor Holz won a total of $10,966,379 in live poker tournaments in 2016. This includes his winnings from the $111,111 One Drop High Roller, the $111,111 No Limit Hold'em for One Drop, and the €50,000 Super High Roller at the European Poker Tour Grand Final, among others. It's worth noting that this figure only includes his reported tournament winnings and does not consider any other sources of income or expenses, such as buy-ins or travel costs.
According to Hendon Mob, a poker tournament tracking website, Holz has won over $36 million in live poker tournaments throughout his career. He has won several prestigious matches, including the World Series of Poker (WSOP) High Roller for One Drop, the Triton Million for Charity, and the Super High Roller Bowl. In addition to his success in live tournaments, Holz has also achieved great success in online poker, winning over $6 million in online games.
Although Holz doesn't explicitly disclose the exact figure for 2016 in a video that he posted to his YouTube channel, it is evident that he made a profit of more than $10 million from Vegas tournaments alone and was up by $450,000 from side bets before winning €1.3 million in Barcelona. Therefore, we can conclude that Holz earned well over $20 million in profits during his remarkable year.
Off the poker table, Holz is known for his business ventures, including his company, Primed Mind, which offers a mental training app for poker players and other athletes. He is also a philanthropist, donating some of his winnings to various charitable causes, including effective altruism organizations.
While Holz has continued to have success in poker since 2016, his earnings in subsequent years have not surpassed his incredible run of that year.
