Fedor Holz Wins EPT Barcelona Super High Roller (€1.3 million)

Germany's Fedor Holz brought the second largest stack to the 2016 EPT Barcelona Super High Roller final table on Monday, and he declined all proposed deals when there were 3 players remaining out of 9 (he must have had a good feeling he was going to be the winner).

Timothy Adams, who started the final table with a big lead, was sent packing in third place after losing his final chips to Sam Greenwood after going all in before the flop with a pair of 2's. Greenwood had AK of clubs and won the flip. Greenwood and Holz had about even stacks when the heads-up battle started, but Holz played extremely well and quickly generated himself a big lead.

The tournament came to an end on the 75th hand of the day when Greenwood shoved his final chips with 5-6 suited and Holz made the call with ace-king. The flop brought a king. The turn gave Greenwood an open-ended straight draw, however, the river card didn't complete his hand and he had to settle for a second place finish for €903,600.

Fedor Holz received €1,300,300 for winning the tournament and has now earned over $12 million in tournament cashes in the past 6 months! Holz, only 23 years old, claimed he would retire from poker just a couple of months ago, but we somehow don't think that will happen now. He's closing in on $20 million in lifetime live tournament winnings, and he's now close of catching up with Sam Trickett for the 8th place on the all-time money list (Daniel Negreanu tops the list with just under $33 million).

This is the way to go. In half a year over 12 million $.
He is having an excellent run with such cashes.
Probably this was the reason making him refuse the deal.
Why getting into one in the first place, when you are the chip leader and you are running hot.

ok so lets get real here... guy has won 12 millions in live games in just half of year and has 20 millions in total live cashes while the overall leader has 33 millions, so... considering that he is only 23, odds are that he is going to suffer a long run of poor form quite soon. what goes up, must come down.

Congratulations to Fedor Holz for winning the EPT Barcelona €50,000 Super High Roller event. Now, he is less than a million shy of the $20 million lifetime live tournament winnings mark, which is quite impressive considering that he has done that in just a few years.

Hats up to this guy for not taking those deals! My kinda fella.
Finished the tourney unbent, unbowed and unbroken I am only feeling sorry for him because the german goverment will definitely tax him like there's no tomorrow after these winnings.
