It's starting to get ridiculous at this point, but Fedor "CrownUpGuy" Holz has taken down yet another Super High Roller title after winning the 2016 EPT Barcelona €50K Super High Roller for over €1,3 million.

Holz started the final table second in chips and refused to do any deals when the final table got down to three-handed.

The heads-up play between Holz and Sam Greenwood started after Timothy "Tim0thee" Adams was eliminated in 3rd place for nearly €600K. Adams, who started the final with a commanding chip lead, lost his last chips to Sam Greenwood after shoving all-in preflop with a pair of twos. Greenwood called his shove with and won the flip.

After that hand, Holz and Greenwood were virtually tied in chips when the heads-up play began. However, Greenwood barely won a pot against Holz and eventually got the last of his chips in with . Holz called him off with and hit top pair on the flop that held till to river, securing him yet another Super High Roller title.

It's starting to get hard to keep track of all the tournaments he has won - after this latest win, Holz has cashed for over $16 million in live tournaments this year alone. Just few months ago, the 23-year-old German pro said he was retiring from professional poker after taking down the 2016 WSOP $111,111 for One Drop High Roller for $4,981,775.

Whether he'll retire or keep playing remains to be seen, but his amazing run in big buy-in tournaments will be engraved in poker history as one of the greatest ever.
