Fedor Holz is grinding hard during GGSF and SCOOP and now it paid off big time! Last night Fedor shipped GGSF Event #37 High: $1,500 Sunday Marathon for a whopping $124,457.

Several big names made the final tables such as Timothy Adams, Mike Watson and rising Estonian poker star Ottomar Ladva.
However, none of them was able to stop Fedor Holz from winning his first-ever GGSF title together with a massive $124,457.
Holz beat Canadian player “ranking-even” heads-up for the title, while the latter still earned $93,329.06 for his Runner-Up finish.
Dawid Smolka from Poland lands biggest score of last night’s Sunday Grind worth $293,549
But that was not the largest score yesterday at the GG Spring Festival, not by a far margin as Event H-38 had a huge guarantee of $1,500,000, which was also easily reached.
357 players paid the $5,350 Bounty Hunter Main Event buy-in and created a huge $1,785,000 prize pool.
Again several notables made it to the FT including online legends Eelis “EEE27” Pärssinen (4./$84,661.33) and Preben “prebz” Stokkan (3./$89,887.68).
Heads-Up was a Polish-Ukrainian battle between Andrii Derzhypilskiy and Dawid “INSERTC0IN” Smolka, who had the better end for himself and secured a career-high score of $293,549 ($110,697 + $182,852 in bounties).
Alex Foxen takes down Powerfest #03 – $5,200 High Roller for $137,317, Christoph Vogelsang Runner-Up
Since Friday partypoker’s signature online tournament series is running and the first big highlights took place last night.
One of them was the POWERFEST Event #3, a $5,200 High Roller, for which 91 of the best poker tournament players in the world signed up.
Due to the very tough field it didn’t came as a surprise that we saw an extremely strong final table featuring online legend Michael Addamo, Jonathan “apestyles” Van Fleet, David Peters, Christoph Vogelsang and poker power couple Kristen Bicknell and Alex Foxen.
The back-to-back GPI Player of the Year once again beasted everything and even beat online crusher Christoph Vogelsang heads-up for the title to put the cherry on top.
Foxen added another major title to his incredible results and was rewarded with another huge six-figure score plus the prestigious POWERFEST trophy.
“MrTermo1021” ships SCOOP-28-H: $1,050 NLHE PKO for $150,328
Not only at the GGSF the biggest Sunday Grind score went to Poland, but also at the SCOOP over at PokerStars. “MrTermo1021” reigned supreme in SCOOP Event #28-High, a $1,050 NLHE PKO with $1M GTD.
He outlasted a massive field of 1,261 players, which created an enormous $1,261,000 prize pool.
“MrTermo1021” managed to come out on top of a heads-up battle with Germany’s “nic81411” and took home a staggering $150,328.
