Fedor Holz now #1 of Global Poker Index Ranking

What a great month for Fedor Holz. The german poker pro has won three high roller tournaments in Las Vegas and finished second in another one during the last 30 days. He won more than $5 Million in that time span. While the whole poker scene focusses on Jason Mercier and his two WSOP wins, Holz managed to get past Mercier and took the lead in the Global Poker Index Ranking. Update: On top of that, Holz was able to win Event #67 of the WSOP 2016 (High Roller for One Drop). His first gold bracelet. And another $4,9 Million.

Holz ist now the most successful german poker player ever

Fedor Holz, whos Twitter-Alias is @CrownUpGuy – posted a photo right after his second tourney win within one week – with the note that this is not a re-post. His great run already started on May 27th 2016. Since then, he mangaged to cash in at 7 tournaments in Las Vegas. At the WSOP he finsihed 18th in event #10 and 47th in Event #21. But the real success came at several high roller events in the Aria Casino. A second place at the “Super High Roller Bowl with 888poker” at Aria Casino was worth $3,5 Million. This top-position was followed by three tournament wins: The Super High Roller 9 ($637,392, with Dominik Nitsche as runner-up), Aria High Roller 32 ($393,120, with WSOP-Champion Joe McKeehen as second) and Aria High Roller 34 ($276,012).

With the series of top positions in big poker tourneys, Holz managed to achieve two milestones in his young poker career: He now is the most successful german poker pro with an overall prize money of more than $13 Million. And he currently leads the Global Poker Index Ranking (GPI).

Even Jason Mercier, the US-boy everyone is currently talking about, is behind Holz. Merciers two golden bracelets in the early stage of this years World Series of Poker are not enough to get the lead at GPI so far. But the wins in WSOP Event #16 and #24 (as well as a second place in event #20) are noteworthy for another reason. Poker Pro Vanessa Selbst might lose millions if Mercier manages to win another bracelet. She made a drunken bet that Mercier wouldn’t be able to win three bracelets this year. Odds: 180:1. Fedor Holz obviously bought into the bet to assist Selbst. He tweeted: “Simple goal for the summer: just win more money than Jason costs me.”
