I'ts not even news anymore nowadays, Fedor Holz winning another High Roller tournament. This time it was the €50,000 High Roller at EPT Barcelona, where the wonderkid managed to win another one. 78 players bought in for €50,000 and the tournament saw another 24 re-entries, creating a total prize pool of €4,947,000. €1,300,300 of that was for the eventual winner, no one else than Fedor Holz.
The final table started with the following chipstacks:
After a very strange fifth hand of the final table, the chipstacks were completely different. The following hand took place:
Ahadpur Khangah limped in from early position holding . Action folded to Erik Seidel on the button and he moved all in for 860,000 with . That wasn't the end of it by any means, as Sam Greenwood woke up with in the small blind and over pushed for 1.25 million.
Big blind Julian Stuer found in the big blind and he pushed all in as well, moving in for 2.14 million. Ahadpur Khangah, facing three all-ins, just about snap called to put all three of them at risk!
The flop came and Greenwood still had a strong lead with 67 percent equity. Greenwood commented it was the best flop he could've asked for but soon realized he was jinxing himself. The on the turn gave Khangah a flush draw and Greenwood commented: "It's like a PLO hand!" The on the river was a blank and Erik Seidel made his exit. Greenwood moved up to second in chips, Stuer still in it as he won the side pot. Khangah down to 17 big blinds.
Erik Seidel finished in ninth place, collecting €137,000 for his efforts. Stuer and Khagah were left with short stacks, and Stuer busted shortly after the crazy hand, collecting €181,200. Daniel Dvoress finished in seventh place for €232,600 when his pocket 8's couldn't beat Greenwood's pocket 10's.
Just three hands later it was the end for title defender Sylvain Loosli, his were no match against professional hotrunner Fedor Holz's , Loosli collected €293,800 for his sixth place.
Within half an hour the table said goodbye to Khangah, his didn't win the flip against Greenwood's , Khangah earned himself a nice €377,100 for his fifth place finish.
In the 47th hand we lost another player, this time Kolonias' Kings got cracked by Holz' 9's. Kolonias collected €467,700 for fourth place.
A deal was suggested, but Holz declined, so the three played on for the original price money.
Timothy Adams wouldn't make it to heads-up play. He lost the coinflip for his tournament life when his pocket 2's couldn't win against Greenwood's on . Adams earned €597,500 for third place finish, and Holz and Greenwood were down to heads-up.
In the final hand, Adams had all his chips in the middle with against Holz' , and after the board ran out Holz had another victory in the pocket.
