Very well done to Fedor Holz from Germany for conquering the $111,111 buy-in tournament that attracted world's finest 183 poker players. Having earned $4,981,775 first place prize from this tournament, he has accumulated nearly $18.5 million in live tournament earnings in quite a short period of time.
183 player is not a lot ... and gain almost five million it is certainly very cool .... and age it for a good game very young ... probably many underestimated him and because of this he paid ... in any case, I am very happy for him, he was a pretty good player and deserves it
First time I heard this name when I saw his total live winnings then I realized I missed a lot in the live poker circuit world just too bad that this year we did not have the 1 million buy in one drop as it's a really the biggest one IMO even bigger than the Main Event...
