Online poker brands regularly sign poker pros to their sites, to work as ambassadors or sponsored players during online and live events. The latest online poker room to sign a sponsorship agreement with a top pro is partypoker. The online poker brand announced earlier this week that Fedor Holz is their latest sponsored pro.
Holz is a German professional poker player who burst onto the scene just a few short years ago. Within a four-year time frame, Holz has been able to earn around $23 million during tournament game play. The largest prize the pro ever earned took place last year during the High Roller event of the WSOP. Holz paid the $111,111 buy-in and earned close to $5 million for the first-place finish.
According to the partypoker blog, Holz will be wearing the patch of the poker brand during tournament gaming and will play an integral role in creating the partypoker LIVE MILLIONS high roller formats as well as tournaments for the Online High Roller Series which will be launching soon.
Commenting on signing with party, Holz stated that he would never partner with a company that is not committed to listening and looking after their players. He discussed the plans of partypoker with Patrick Leonard, a good friend who is also involved with the brand, helping to improve customer service and software.
Holz will now be the 18th member of the partypoker team with the brand already sponsoring several top pros. Other sponsored players include Sam Trickett, Boris Becker and Padraig Parkinson.
