CardsChat with Fedor Holz

CardsChat - Poker professional interviews from The World's #1 Poker Community

On episode #40 of the CardsChat podcast, we have the pleasure of welcoming Fedor Holz. Fedor first made his name as an online tournament crusher, and he now has $10.8 million in career earnings. He then moved more and more into the live realm and high roller scene and has since destroyed it to the tune of almost $33 million in earnings, currently good for 7th place on the all-time money list. Then, he entered another area of the poker world and dominated it too, the tournament playing “retired” businessman, and together with colleagues he created the Pokercode training community. All that and he’s still only 27 years old. On today’s show we get to know the impressive man behind all of those impressive numbers and poker feats.

015: Traits of the Sickest Grinders, Deconstructing Reality, and GTO Protein Bars with Fedor Holz

Beyond Poker

Why do the best players reliably outrank the competition? Why are some people so much better at analysis than intuition?  Today, Nick and Wayne are talking with Fedor Holz. Fedor is an unbelievably gifted player. He won his first WSOP bracelet in 2016 and now sits at #1 on the German all-time money list, with life tournament winnings of over $32,500,000. He shifted his focus away from poker in 2019 to develop his start-up, a mindset coaching app called Primed Mind, which makes it easy for people to use the same powerful visualization techniques that have empowered the world’s most notable phenoms.  In this episode, Nick begins by immediately asking Fedor a simple question: “How do you navigate the analytical and intuitive plane in balance?” Fedor’s answer leads the trio in a number of different directions, including what it really means to have grit, how to process new information in every aspect of life, and how the COVID-19 pandemic forced Fedor to evaluate not just what truly matters, but what stops someone from being truly effective at what they do. Key Takeaways Why the best poker players - and businesspeople - are naturally curious.  Why Fedor had to spend tens of thousands of dollars on protein bars and work with a full-time sports scientist to realize there was no product that could optimize his performance and well-being.  The value of being the person who doesn’t jump to conclusions.  How having an overloaded calendar with too many meetings makes it impossible to forge real, authentic connections.

#7 Money versus self-worth ❘ Fedor Holz

Into the Unknown

Learning from a professional poker playerTo what extent can you maximize your output and how much in poker is fate? What can you learn from poker when it comes to making decisions? And why is it better to focus on the things you can influence? In this episode, I'm talking to Fedor Holz, who, in his mid-20s as a professional tournament poker player, has won more than 30 million. We talk about taking risks, "seeing" the opponent, money versus self-worth, the joy of the game, but also about rejection and vulnerability.
