After a comparatively short duel, Fedor Holz emerged victorious against Wikto “limitless” Malinowski.

Fedor, a German professional, managed to outwit Malinowski in a short heads-up challenge. Malinowski, an online pro, lost over $90,000 after the conclusion of the challenge.

Compared to other challenges that we have witnessed over a few months, Fedor’s heads-up challenge was relatively short. Doug Polk Vs. Negreanu challenge lasted 25,000 hands spread over several weeks.

On the other hand, Fedor Vs. Malinowski challenge lasted four sessions. Also, the stakes were a little lower. They played at $100/$200 stakes.

Like with other challenges, there were a series of events that led up to the challenge. It all started when Malinowski called out Holz on a YouTube Podcast hosted by Joey Ingram. Malinowski playfully remarked that he can play anyone at high stakes while indulging in alcohol.

Well, he held his part of the deal. He played against Holz while drinking alcohol. However, at the end of the day, he did not win the challenge. Holz outplayed him to win $90,000.

They played a cumulative total of 1600 hands. In the first session, Holz cruised to a comfortable lead after winning a few significant pots. He won the first session by $37,421.

The second session was, however, not as volatile. Holz won by $14,651. Holz continued his impressive performance in the third session, extending his lead even further. He won the third session by $108,195.

Malinowski was staring at a huge loss at the start of the fourth session, he was already down by almost $160k. However, he staged a late comeback to win the fourth session by $69,893.

But he can always blame it on alcohol, right?

Before the last session, Malinowski wanted to have a longer heads up, a suggestion he directed to Holz
