Article about Fedor Holz - July 2017. Mockup.At the tender age of just 24, Fedor Holz has already established himself as one of the very best poker players in the world.

In addition to his online cashes, Holz has managed to compile total live tournament cash earnings of $23,354,884, which puts him at #6 on the all-time money list. Only five men - Daniel Negreanu, Erik Seidel, Daniel Colman, Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Ivey - sit above Holz on the all-time cash leaderboard.

Over the past couple of years, Fedor Holz has gone on an absolute rampage in high buy-in tournaments. Between December 2015 and April of 2017, Holz cashed for over 7 figures a total of five times, including a victory in the 2016 $111,111 High Roller for ONE DROP for $4,981,775 and a second place finish in the 2016 Super High Roller Bowl for $3,500,000.

In just a few years, Holz firmly established himself as one of the very best that the game of poker has to offer.

Fedor's remarkable success led to a feature in Forbes Magazine, which you can access by visiting the link below.

In the article, Holz discusses the key factor to his success, which he says is a network of players that includes the likes of Rainer Kempe, Steffen Sontheimer and Koray Aldemir.

Holz also discusses financial freedom and the rigours of travelling on the live poker circuit. Holz says that he has scaled back on the travelling (he points out that he took 200 flights per year in 2015 and 2016) in order to focus on building his startup, which is called "Primed Mind". If you were following the Twitter accounts of various high-profile poker players throughout the World Series of Poker, you likely heard "Primed Mind" being referenced quite regularly. According to Holz, the Primed Mind mobile app has been downloaded over 20,000 times.


In the conclusion of the article, Holz said that online high stakes action is dying out and that live poker is "the main thing that should be focused on".
