Fedor Holz - Scenic picture with mountains in the backgroundFedor Holz's unbelievable run continued earlier this week when he took down the $111,111 High Roller for One Drop event at the World Series of Poker for $4,981,775. This victory, which provided the largest cash of Fedor's short poker career, resulted in the German poker prodigy receiving his very first World Series of Poker bracelet.

Over the past 12 months, Fedor Holz has cashed for six figures no less than 15 times. This magical run includes four million dollar plus cashes - the aforementioned High Roller for ONE DROP victory for $4,981,775, a second place finish ($3,500,000) in the Super High Roller Bowl in May, a victory at the Triton Super High Roller Series in the Philippines ($3,463,500) and a victory at the WPT Alpha8 at the Bellagio in December of 2015 ($1,589,219).

As of all of that weren't enough, Holz has also done extremely well in online tournaments over the past few years as well, as he has won the WCOOP main event ($1.3 million), as well as the Full Tilt Poker Sunday major multiple times.


With his $18,495,174 in total live poker cashes, Fedor is already in 9th place on the all-time money list, despite the fact that he is only 22 years of age.

This means that, just a few days shy of his 23rd birthday, Fedor Holz has already passed the likes of Carlos Mortensen, Joe Hachem, Michael "The Grinder" Mizrachi, Allen Cunningham and Gus Hansen on the all-time money list.

In fact, Fedor is currently just $2.5 million behind Phil Hellmuth on the all-time money list, despite the fact that Hellmuth has 14 World Series of Poker bracelets (including a main event bracelet) under his belt. Phil Hellmuth is nearly 30 years older than Fedor.


Fedor's surge up the all-time money list speaks to a couple of things - his talent and the proliferance of High Roller and Super High Roller tournaments. If you have the bankroll and the talent, it is just a matter of time before you take down a Super High Roller tournament for millions of dollars, and this will certainly increase the speed at which you climb the all-time money list.


There have been some incredible one-year runs over the years, though Fedor Holz's streak over the past 12 months might be the most impressive of them all.
