Originally hailing from Saarbrücken, Germany, the 26 year old has been unstoppable since breaking out in 2014. That year saw him win the first of two EPT titles. He capped off 2014 with a World Championship of Online Poker title for $1.3 million, a performance that would also earn him the PocketFives.com 2014 online player of year – a title he would win again in 2015.
Fedor is the very definition of the phrase “poker phenom”, however poker success and riches didn’t come easily to him. By his own admission it took four years of grinding before he was able to book consistent profits, but since then he’s never looked back. The living embodiment of what sheer hard work, dedication to the grind and learning from your mistakes can bring you, Fedor is universally popular on his Youtube & Twitch channels as an excellent source of poker strategy and motivation.
