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
Unibet have worked with creative agency FCB Inferno to release a custom deck of cards to accompany the launch of a new poker format where the Queen outranks the King.The project is intended to help draw attention to gender equality and unconscious gender bias in poker.
On March 8 (International Women’s Day) Unibet is sponsoring live events and tournaments in London, Stockholm and Malta that feature the new poker format.
All proceeds from the events will be donated to HeforShe “a solidarity campaign created by UN Women to provide a platform for a global audience to engage and become change agents for the achievement of gender equality.”
In this great interview with CardPlayer Lifestyle, Robbie Strazynski goes one-on-one with Phil Hellmuth ahead of the launch of his new autobiography “The Poker Brat”—which Hellmuth hopes will become a New York Times Bestseller—to really find out the man behind the famous name.
Thanks to pokernyhederne and some cryptic tweets from Doyle Brunson it was revealed that the two men who lost their shit in the Bellagio’s high stakes Bobby’s Room were none other than Gus Hansen and David Oppenhiem.
We are bit late to the party on this, but back in late November Fedor Holz challenged his twitter followers to read or listen to 40 new books before the end of the year. All in the name of bettering yourself. I think.
Branching out into the world of YouTube beyond his usual poker shows, Polk is now reaching for heights of internet stardom by trying to recreate the success of renowned YouTubers such as PewDiePie, Markiplier, and jacksepticeye.
The Atlantic Ballroom at the Resorts Casino in Atlantic City New Jersey is the scene of the all new StarsFun Skills Zone. Those attending the new PokerStars Festival event in New Jersey can not only blow off steam while taking a break from the poker tables, but they can take the opportunity to even get in a little extra action.
By now just about everyone has seen the infamous “Check your privilege” hand from the 2016 World Series of Poker Main Event (if not you can watch it below), but according to speech-play master William Kassouf, there was more to the hand between him and November Niner Griffin Benger than what was shown on ESPN.
Following Mike “The Mouth” Matusow’s interview on the PokerNews podcast where he talked about the Poker Hall of Fame nominees and why he feels he was snubbed, Daniel Negreanu took to the podcast to tackle some misconceptions that were spoken about.
