After winning the 2014 World Championship of Online Poker Main Event for $1.3 million, Fedor Holz set some new, challenging goals for himself. When asked what those goals were in an interview with PokerNews, Holz responded, "I want to win a super high roller. I enjoy playing live tournaments and this would be the cherry on top of an awesome year."
The year may have turned to 2015, but Holz now finds himself in the mix at a super high roller final table with the chance at achieving one of his goals.
Prior to this event, the biggest live tournament cash for Holz came from a ninth-place finish in the recent European Poker Tour Malta Main Event for €60,290. Already earning much more than that here in this event, don't let the young, German baby face fool you. Holz can play with the best of them and he certainly has that killer instinct that all top poker players have.
With the average stack a little over 2.2 million, Holz will enter the third and final day of play with 1.65 million — good for sixth overall. He'll still have 41 big blinds to work with, and no one should count this kid out.
