Fedor Holz Tops 2017 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro HK$250,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max
German high roller specialist Fedor Holz bested the field of yet another tournament to increase his behemoth poker bankroll and to add another major trophy to his collection.
The player was one of the 41 entries in the two-day Triton Super High Roller Series HK$250,000 No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max, which took place in Budva, Montenegro on July 16-17. Holz once again manifested just how good he is at poker and how particularly excellent he is at high roller tournaments.
Last year, the player announced that he was retiring from professional poker and that he would only play recreationally. In the months after that announcement, Holz won several more events and accumulated several more million dollars.
As mentioned above, the 23-year-old German had to overcome competition from 41 tournament entries in the Budva-held Triton Super High Roller event. Of those, 25 progressed into the second and final day of play. It took around four hours of play for them to be reduced to just 12. The official final table was set not long after.
Holz entered that final stage of play as the chip leader and maintained his advantage until three-handed play. Then, he experienced several ups and downs. The player even reached a point when he was down to just 400,000 chips, which put him in a very dangerous place. Yet, he patiently waited for a good spot to go all-in and to improve.
Two-handed play did not take long before the name of the champion became clear. Hao Su from China was Holz’s heads-up opponent but he could not hold up against the German poker pro for very long. Su eventually collected HK$2,218,000 ($284,192) for his runner-up finish.
As for Holz, his share of the HK$9,643,200 ($1,235,582) prize pool amounted to HK$3,472,200 ($444,893). The player’s latest triumph on the felt brought his overall live tournament winnings to $23,354,884 and further cemented his position as a leader in Germany’s all-time money list.
