Fedor Holz is one of today’s top poker players. With earnings approaching 30 million dollars, I thought a mini bio would be an inspiration for many people looking at the world of poker and everything you can get out of it. Born July 25, 1993, his mother was a teen mom and he grew up with a distant father and two younger sisters. Since his mother had to quit school because of him and raise not only him but two daughters as well, he sees this period as a time of lots of challenges. In his family expectations were extremely high but he couldn’t meet many of those expectations and often lost interest in many things. Being a smaller guy, he was often bullied. He thinks that showing interest in some things and being excited could have an impact on those around him but not necessarily a positive one. He felt his enthusiasm could spark a backlash around those who might not have been as interested in things as he was. As a result, he lost interest in things and just went along with the flow, passionless but just going.
He went to college for computer science but again he wasn’t interested in it. He was playing poker since he was 16 but at college he. He continued playing poker with friends who were making 2000 Euros a month. It was enough at the time to afford trips and etc. He was interested in something at that point. He wasn’t successful in the beginning. He stuck with it and set strict goals that are hard to achieve and would stick to them everyday. During this period, he changed his mentality from results driven to overall goal related. One of the key reasons he loves poker is that everything is really on the individual. Any mistake as well as any victory is all about the individual.
After 2016, his first major year when he won or made $16,000,000, he found himself at a crossroad. Though being one of the world’s top poker players was his goal. He found the most important thing was the process of getting there and not necesarily the end result. How he reached the overall goal was more important than the overall goal itself. The interest in poker was more important than the cash itself. At this point he started a business Primed Mind and he briefly retired from poker.
During his retirement from poker he started Primed Mind. Primed Mind was launched with Holz’ poker coach Elliot Roe. It takes the same principles used to help Holz achieve his poker goals. These same principles can be used to achieve anything else in life according to Holz and his coach. It’s an app available at Google Play. Users listen to a mindset coach named Elliot. The goal is to allow visualization, and relaxation techniques to set goals. The ultimate agenda is create self confidence, better health, personal growth and recovery skills. He along with Nathan Schmitt and Duane Ludwig are the three key people at Primed Mind along with Elliot Roe, the mindset coach. It’s an interesting concept and has led to dramatic results for Holz. This is also a way to give back and help others who want to achieve their goals. He has won tens of millions of dollars at live poker events as well as online.
PokerStars is where Holz has played poker the most online. His nickname is Crownupguy and his results there are impressive as well. He was Pocketfives top player for the years 2015 and 2016. More recently, Holz has signed on with Party Poker. The online poker juggernaut to become one of their representatives. This means major money, lots of great compensation in the forms of being able to play top games and salary. It is hoped this move will attract more players to the site. He will wear the Party Poker logo at live tournaments and help design a high roller series to offered at Party Poker.
Holz’ top ten cashes, though they probably don’t mean too much to him since they are in the past. Everyone is salivating over the numbers. So here’s a look at his top cashes. It’s arranged with tournament date, name, buyin, Holz finish and cash result.
