In today’s Daily 3-Bet we’ll look at Fedor Holz’ incredible results at Aria, the Devilfish and Ryan Laplante’s inspiring bracelet speech.
1) Fedor Holz Wins Aria $25k
Fedor Holz wins poker tournament.
At this point that statement is starting to get repetitive.
The 22-year-old German poker superstar added yet another high roller title to his resume this weekend by winning an Aria $25k event for $393,120.
2015 WSOP Champ Joe McKeehen finished second for $224k. Holz' friend Rainer Kempe, the recent Super High Roller Bowl champ, finished fourth for $84,240.
The Aria has been very, very good to Holz this summer. He's scooped a total of of $4,652,500. It's time to find him an Aria-branded crown, already.
Here’s a complete look at what Holz has picked up at the posh Las Vegas venue this summer:
May 27 — Aria $50k High Roller 7th — $122,400
May 29 — Aria $300k Super High Roller Bowl 2nd — $3,500,000

2) Devilfish Cup Coming in 2016

3) Ryan Laplante Speaks Out on Orlando Shootings
Ryan Laplante, an openly gay poker pro from Madison, Wi, outlasted 2,483 entries to win the record-breaking PLO event at the WSOP on Saturday.
That happy moment was eclipsed by news of the horrific mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando early Sunday morning and Laplante decided to use his WSOP bracelet ceremony as a platform to speak out on the incident:
...I'm proud to call myself an openly gay man, and I encourage all of you to be proud of who you are and be comfortable enough in yourself to be open with who you are with those around you if you so desire to do so.
And finally, please treat each other with love and respect as there's too much hate and anger in this world."
