Fedor Holz Wins 2nd Bracelet in $25K Heads-Up
The final four was reached in the Event #79: $25,00 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold’em [People’s Choice Event] on Tuesday as Sergi Reixach, Brunno Botteon, Oktay Kahyaoglu, and GGPoker ambassador Fedor Holz were all guaranteed $311,150 in prize money. Following Holz defeating Reixach, and Botteon and defeating Kahyaoglu, the final two players looked to face off for the $1,070,250 first-place prize, an added WSOP Europe package, and the WSOP bracelet
Holz immediately began the final match by taking a three-to-one chip advantage over a series of hands, and after a little back-and-forth between the two, the final hand would play out. Botteon raised with pocket tens and Holz defended his big blind with pocket fives and flopped second set. The two exchanged a series of raises back-and-forth before Botteon called all-in, and when no ten fell for the South African, he was eliminated in second-place, and Holz captured his second WSOP bracelet.
