Holtz commented on the process of this record: “I knew the result, I accumulated more winnings than usual, and was curious about where I stood. When I checked online, I found that I had 10 cash and was in the lead Status. I checked previous ITM records and found that Chris Ferguson and Daniel Negreanu each held 23. I realized I was beating her and from that moment on, it became an unintentional target in the series. I’m incredibly proud of that and will always remember that.”
