Poker Phenom Fedor Holz Looks Back on His Epic 2016 Run

Fedor Holz had a legendary 2016 tournament run with 6 nosebleed wins through the year. Six years after making history, he breaks down how it all happened.

Casual observers of the poker world often see huge success “coming out of nowhere” with players seeming to suddenly burst onto the scene with high-profile wins, but the truth is usually a bit less dramatic. In this excellent video, poker phenom Fedor Holz takes a deep dive into his epic tournament poker run in 2016.

That was the year Fedor crushed the nosebleed tournament scene, booking six wins from January to December, including nearly $5 million for winning the WSOP $111,111 No-Limit Hold’em High Roller for One Drop. He also took $3.5 million for second in a Super High Roller Bowl event and a bit more than $3 million for a Triton win.

But Holz’s 2016 success didn’t come out of the blue — he had a *breakout year in the online poker scene in 2014*. But, then he seemed to stall in 2015, burning through a third of his bankroll taking shots at live high rollers. He felt good with his game, but the results weren’t coming for him.

At the start of this video, Holz credits his work with Elliot Roe starting in Oct/Nov 2015 as the turnaround point in his game and proceeds to take the viewers on a recap of his roller-coaster ride through the 2016 super high roller circuit.
