Fedor Holz Leads WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas FInal Table

12:31 AM PST, Dec 20, 2015 • Level 16: 15,000-30,000 , 4,000 ante

After 10 levels of play, it’s down to the official final table of eight in the WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas and Fedor Holz is leading the way with over 40% of the chips in play, bagging 4,865,000 at the end of the night. He scored

There is a big drop after Holz in the chip counts, but Nick Petrangelo, Keith Tilston and Daniel Negreanu round out the top half of the chip counts with 1,750,000, 1,630,000 and 1,475,000, respectively. Sean Winter, Kathy Lehne, Ankush Mandavia and David Peters round out the bottom half of the chip counts with 1,355,000, 1,255,000, 765,000 and 555,000, respectively.

The day began with a field of 31 from the original 38 players who put up the $100,000 on Day 1 of the event, but there was still two levels of late registration. By the time late registration had closed, the field had grown to 45 players, generating a prizepool of $4,414,500, with the top seven players earning a payday. On Sunday, when the final eight players return, they will continue their play on the money bubble. The next player eliminated will go home empty-handed and the remaining seven players will earn at least $176,500.

While a min-cash is worth $176,500, everybody has their eyes on the first place prize of $1,509,219. Second place also takes home a seven-figure payday, taking home $1,015,000.

The final eight players come back at 2 p.m. on Sunday to play down to a winner. WPT.com will have hand-for-hand coverage of the final table.

FEDOR HOLZ DOMINATES FINAL TABLE TO TAKE HOME WPT ALPHA8 LAS VEGAS TITLE


Fedor Holz brought a massive chip lead into the final table of the $100,000 WPT Alpha8 Las Vegas final table and never even came close to relinquishing it en route to topping a field of 45 players to take home his first Alpha8 title and over $1.5 million.

Holz made short work of the final table, finishing off his opponents in just over 100 hands to earn his biggest live cash of his career. His win at the Bellagio brings his total career tournament earnings to over $3.8 million in his short poker career.

At the start of the day with eight players remaining, Holz had about 40% of the chips in play. At the outset of play, Holz continued to accumulate chips by eliminating David Peters in eighth place to burst the money bubble. Peters was eliminated and the remaining seven players were all guaranteed a cash.

After Peters was eliminated, Holz just continued to accumulate chips without showdown and there were a flurry of eliminations shortly after a break with Keith Tilston, Kathy Lehne and Ankush Mandavia hitting the rail in seventh, sixth, and fifth place, respectively. When four-handed play began, Holz had only accumulated about 60% of the chips in play and had a better than 3-to-1 chip advantage on his closest competitor.

During four-handed play, Nick Petrangelo doubled up through Daniel Negreanu and then eliminated Sean Winter in fourth to make a nice run up the chip counts of his own. Negreanu was left short after doubling up Petrangelo and was finished off by Petrangelo himself, which left Holz heads-up with Petrangelo for all the marbles.

After a short break for player interviews, heads-up play began with Holz holding a better than 2-to-1 chip lead. Petrangelo couldn’t get much going against the German pro and Holz won a flip with pocket fives against A-Q about 30 minutes into the match to take home the title.

Here are a look at the final table results:
1st: Fedor Holz – $1,589,219
2nd: Nick Petrangelo – $1,015,335
3rd: Daniel Negreanu – $640,103
4th: Sean Winter – $441,450
5th: Ankush Mandavia – $309,015
6th: Kathy Lehne – $242,798
7th: Keith Tilston – $176,580
