Less than a month after unveiling Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier as an official Ambassador, GGPoker have unveiled German all-time money list leader Fedor Holz as their latest brand ambassador.
The side has partnered with the training site and community Pokercode with its members receiving additional GGPoker promotions when they register at GGPoker using the code "pokercode", distributing adding value to the community.
The Pokercode community is led by both Fedor Holz and fellow poker superstars Matthias Eibinger. As part of the announcement, Holz joins the GGPoker team as a full ambassador, joining Grospellier along with Felipe Ramos, Bryn Kenney and of course Daniel Negreanu.
"Pokercode is yet another top brand to add to our list of partners,” said Jean-Christophe Antoine, Head of GGPoker. “It’s a pleasure to welcome Fedor Holz onto Team GGPoker. His passion for the game and success both live and online is truly impressive. We couldn’t be happier to welcome Fedor and the entire Pokercode community.”
Holz said that he was "honored" to join Team GGPoker.
“We’re thrilled to become a GGPoker partner, particularly at this exciting time," he said. “In addition to the broad suite of poker training our players already have access to, helping them see much greater success at the tables, Pokercode players can now call the best platform in the industry home.”
All Pokercode poker players that register at GGPoker using the code “pokercode” will be eligible to claim a Welcome Bonus and will automatically join the Fish Buffet loyalty programme, spinning for cash prizes each time they reach a new status level.

Poker Legend Fedor Holz
Holz has previously spoken at length about his upbringing and background, and how his experiences from his childhood lead to a career in poker and as an entrepreneur.
After studying mathematics, he felt a pressure within his family to "get a job" and to live his life in a solid way. However, poker had something to say about that.
Like many, Holz got into poker during university whilst playing home games with his friends. It was this new challenge that saw him look to build a network of people around him who share the similar interests and passions, and thus began his poker career.
Holz made his first million playing poker in 2015 and increased his live earnings to over $20 million through 2016. To date, Holz has over $32 million in live-tournament earnings, with his largest score being a second-place finish in the 2018 $1,000,000 The Big One for One Drop for $6,000,000.
