It is a dream for poker players to join the poker table at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) and win the bracelet. No one could understand this feeling better than German professional poker player Fedor Holz, who has won it once.
This month, with the $25,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em People’s Choice poker tournament hosted by GGPoker, Holz will have a chance to take his bracelet count to two.
The 2020 WSOP tournament featured 127 poker players with a whopping $3,111,500 in prize money. Not to mention Holz is having a dream run at the event and before reaching the semi-finals, he went on to win five matches back-to-back.
The tournament will reward the top eight players known as Elite Eight. The Elite Eight included Holz himself, along with Brunno Botteon, Oktay Kahyaoglu, Sergi Reixach, Justin Bonomo, Aaron Van Blarcum, Stuart Wallensteen, and Jason McConnon.
Of these, the last four have fallen short in their matchups. After their exit, the semi-final line-up will look like this – Holz playing against Reixach and Botteon playing against Kahyaoglu. The semi-finals are to take place on September 6, 2020.
The prize money for the tournament is broken as $194,469 to each Elite Eight loser, $311,150 to each semi-final loser, $622,300 to the runner-up, and $1,070,250 to the winner.
Holz, who is also the GGPoker ambassador, is on the verge of creating history this time. Winning the second WSOP bracelet and that too while playing for his own poker site will make this moment a memorable one for him.
