Fedor Holz Signs with Team Partypoker

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017

Fedor Holz is in the midst of the greatest run in poker history with $23 million in winnings.

Partypoker has certainly noticed because they recently signed the German to a sponsorship deal. Here’s a look at Holz’s tweet on the matter:

Team Partypoker is Growing with Addition of Holz

Holz’s Twitter account ‘CrownUpGuy’ lists him as a “Partner of @PartyPoker.”

Partypoker has used their large team to gain some of the internet poker market share back. PokerScout.com shows that they currently average 1,250 cash game players per hour, which is fourth in the world. They trail PokerStars (11,000), IDNPoker (4,400), and 888poker (1,450).

Holz Continues Racking Up Major Poker Winnings

Adding Holz to their team gives Partypoker even more recognition thanks to all of his success over the years. He has $23,354,884 in tournament winnings to date and plenty of prestigious tourney titles.

Holz won the Triton Super High Roller Series HK$250,000 buy-in event in July (US$444,893). Back in May he won a $50k Aria Super High Roller Bowl tourney along with $417,600.

The biggest victory of Holz’s career came when he won the $111,111 NL Hold’em High Roller for One Drop and $4,981,775.

Perhaps what’s most interesting about all of this is that Holz semi-retired from poker a year ago. He cited the desired to do other things after becoming financially comfortable.

But it’s obvious that Holz isn’t done with poker because he keeps racking up 6 and 7-figure cashes. And few can blame him for continuing to play with all of his success.
