According to PokerStrategy, he appears to be mostly playing $200/$400 and $300/$600 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Triple Draw games. The diligent posters on 2+2 are posting some of his biggest hands if you want to follow along.
Let’s not mention the fact he is still $1.39 million down, lifetime, on that account… maybe he’s about to bring it all back.
In July when we ran the story Holz: The Hottest Player In Poker we knew we were onto something—but since then Holz keeps on ripping up the rule book- with everything he touches turning to gold (or dollar bills).

You should see how he arrived at the Celebrity Cash Kings event before heading to the EPT.
The EPT win brings his summer earnings to around the $16 million mark. He’s had a better summer than most (Jason Mercier included) and yet remains very chilled out about it all—see his interview with PokerNews after his win.
Huge congratulations to The Young Prince.
And just because we can’t get enough of Holz right now, here’s YouTube star, Pamsi drawing CrownUpGuy’s life. It really is rather good.
Following the admission by the most decorated olympian of all time (Michael Phelps in case you didn’t already know) that he was playing Open Face Chinese (OFC) on the Pineapple app, prior to his 200-meter butterfly semi-final race, it looks like some of the poker pros might want to get in on the action with him.
Deeb isn’t the only high profile poker pro to enjoy a little OFC, as Jason Mercier tweeted during the WSOP that he was playing on the app during his “down time” whilst 3 tabling. To be honest, I’m surprised he had any downtime considering his sick WSOP run.
Thank goodness I have pineapple games to play during the down time of #3tabling — Jason Mercier (@JasonMercier) July 01, 2016
Having won his second WSOP bracelet of the Series over the weekend, Jason Mercier is already headed into Day 2 of Event #32: $10,000 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better Championship as he hunts down his third gold bracelet of the series.

Speaking about ex Full Tilt Poker exec, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson entering the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship in this year’s World Series of Poker and at the time only commenting to press that he was just there to play poker, it is clear that Daniel Negreanu is pissed.
Setting foot in The Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas for the first time since Black Friday in 2011, ex Full Tilt Poker exec, Chris “Jesus” Ferguson entered the $10,000 Seven-Card Stud Championship in this year’s World Series of Poker.
Last year it was revealed that Daniel Negreanu was starring in Kid Poker—a documentary that chronicles Negreanu’s life story from his early days in card rooms and pool halls of Toronto to the present day as a six-time WSOP bracelet winner and poker’s highest money winner.
Last week, everyone’s favorite poker legend Phil Hellmuth (who can forget the fact that this man has won 14 WSOP bracelets) announced on Twitter that he was $109K down in his neighborhood poker game; a personal record.
Team PokerStars Pro and team manager of the Global Poker League’s Hong Kong Stars, Celina Lin, was a guest on the popular BBC podcast The Conversation where she revealed that she uses her sex appeal to gain an advantage at the poker table.
Back in January, it was announced that Oscar winning screenwriter Aaron Sorkin (of The Social Network & The West Wing fame) will be making his directorial debut by bringing the memoirs of poker hostess Molly Bloom to life.
