Holz is friends with Nathan “NBK” Schmitt, a former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro for Team Envy. And Schmitt introduced Holz and Envy CEO Mike “Hastr0” Rufail.
According to PokerNews, Holz has since followed the Esports industry closely. And he figures that Envy Gaming would make a good investment, given that they won the 2016 Team of the Year award.
Holz has Become More Involved with Esports
Obviously Holz must think that Envy Gaming offers some profit potential. However, he also invested into the company because he loves Esports.
“I like to invest in things that I’m emotionally connected to, because I feel that I contribute the most but I also get the most out of it,” said Holz.
“I like Envy, I like to watch, I like the way they build their infrastructure and team, take care of their players. And it was just a corporation I wanted to be a part of in some way.”
Holz Wants to Help Esports Players with Mindset
In addition to investing in Esports, Holz has gotten to know some of the pro players. And he’s interested in taking his successful mindset and sharing this approach with Esports players. The German pro has developed an app called Primed Mind to help in this area.
The 24-year-old is definitely a good one to learn from, given that he’s made $26,701,371 in live poker tournaments. What’s really impressive is how quickly he’s racked up these earnings.
Holz’s biggest cash game when he won the 2016 High Roller for One-Drop along with $4,981,775. He had a great year in 2017, winning $6,380,187 over the course of 15 tournaments.
