Fedor Holz Wins EPT Barcelona Super High Roller for €1,3 Million

Fedor Holz

“Retired” Fedor “CrownUpGuy” Holz is unstoppable as he has won another Super High Roller tournament

It is starting to get insane, but Holz took down one more Super High Roller event, this time, the 2016 EPT Barcelona Super High Roller for over €1,3 Million.

He started the final table second in chips and refused any deals when they got down to three players.

Timothy “Tim0thee” Adams was eliminated by Sam Greenwood in third place for nearly €600,000. Adams started the final table with a chip lead but lost his last chips when he went all-in preflop with pocket 2s. Greenwood called with Ac-Kc and won.

After that hand, the heads-up play between Holz and Greenwood started with equal chips. However, Greenwood was able to win only one pot against the 23-year-old pro. Greenwood gave his last chips to Holz with 6d 5h. With his Ad-Kh, Holz flopped a top pair that held to the river and took down one more high-roller title.

By now Holz has over $16 million in live tournament winnings only this year. Just a few months ago the German poker player said he was retiring from professional poker after winning 2016 WSOP $111,111 for One Drop High Roller for almost $5 million.

It doesn’t matter if he will retire or not, but this amazing run in big buy-in tournaments will be engraved in poker history as one of the greatest ever.
