Young and talented Fedor Holz still occupies the first lines of poker publications. The German has consistently shown phenomenal results for the last couple of years and is justifiably considered one of the best players of our time. You can find tons of information about him online, as he is as open to the public as possible.
This weekend, Holz answered players’ questions and became a little closer to us. Holz told that he had always spent a lot of time developing his skills. Approximately 30-50% of time was spent on theory, which included viewing videos, reading forums, communicating with friends, working with a coach, or searching for useful contacts. Holz signed up for Run It Once and believes that he received a ton of value. He watched almost all the videos of Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky and Phil Galfond. Also Fedor spent a lot of time using solvers to better understand the game structure instead of memorizing one particular situation.
Fedor Holz started playing poker in 2011, playing at home with friends for 1/2 cents. In 2012 he was seriously grinding, and the same year he dropped out. There was no "plan B" and no deadlines. Holz was absorbed and a little bit in despair, so he did not think much about the alternatives.
For about 2 years Fedor was sitting on micro limits, then got higher thanks to advanced communication skills. He was convincing and got backing. Holz was playing for mid stakes for a year and a half, making a weak plus. The last 3 years he has been playing for high stakes. The first two periods were rather challenging due to the weak psychology, uncertainty, and serious financial and emotional variance. It was necessary to invest a lot of energy and build the right "environment" to reach the path of success.
Fedor Holz claims that takes tells in live games very seriously. He believes that everyone must have serious fundamental knowledge about the game, and then adjust it to the events, depending on the confidence in the additional information obtained. It is rather beneficial to notice diverse tells. Basically, Holz pays attention to breathing, eyes movement and sweating on fingers and forehead, speed and manner of moving chips, as well as other signs of body language.
Fedor Holz considers victory in WCOOP 2014 as the most emotional moment in his career. Of course, he is not going to stop at achieved making progress in conquering the poker world.
