Fedor Holz GGPoker Global Ambassador Fedor Holz has reached the final table of the $10,300 Super MILLION$ in second place and has every chance of walking away with the $557,636 top prize. Perhaps Holz has been using the recently launched Ask Fedor feature to help his already immense decision making?
This week’s Super MILLION$ is part of the $150 million guaranteed GG Online Championship , which is one of the reasons 268 players bought in. The bumper crowd created a $2,680,000 prize pool that the top 30 finisher share. The final table should have been a nine-handed affair but the double elimination of “Zangezund” in tenth and Wiktor Malinowski in ninth means only eight players remain in contention for the title of champion.
