Tags: 2016 wsop, big One for one drop, Fedor Holz.
Posted on 11 July 2016 by "T".

This year's edition of the One Drop (the 5th one in total) had a $111,111 buy-in and drew a field of 183 players, who battled over 3 days of play for their share of the $19,000,000 prize pool! After eliminating Las Vegas pro Dan Smith in second, Germany's Fedor Holz walked away with the biggest slice of the cake ($4,981,775) as well as his first gold bracelet!

Despite only being 22-years-old, Holz is already a widely-respected live tournament player as well as online high-stakes player. According to Hendon Mob, he now has close to $18.5 million in live tournament earnings - of which most have been accumulated in the past 2 years!

"I just so feel overwhelmed.  I didn't think it would be like this," Holz told just moments after winning his first gold bracelet.  "I'm really happy right now....I was very focused coming into this.  I told my friends even, that this was going to be a very important week.  I had such a great feeling about this tournament and felt really intense about it, which is why it means so much to me to win it."

1 Fedor Holz Germany $4,981,775

Many congratulations to Fedor Holz on winning this event and the massive prize of $4,981,775. I remember watching this guy in last years Main Event and he looked a class act then.

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.

Fedor is the High Roller King atm.

he won 3 events in a row if i recall hearing properly.

The man is 22 or 23 and already maybe the best tournament player around.

Well done Young Sir and keep it going.

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...

Yeah, but for instance the WSOP ME have many entrants who are literally just come off the street and had 10k to spare 4 experience the feeling of it as opposed to this where almost everyone is a tried pro backed with knowledge and money. Which one is harder to take down?

It is the first time that this tournament was held in Monaco this is probably why i don't know any names on the final table.

However with 183 peoples entrants it and managing to win the tournament deserve our congratulations.
