German poker player, Marvin Rettenmaier has had a successful 2012 at the tables. This week we saw him move on from his April $156,186 first placing in the EPT Grand Final in Monaco to a $1.2 million triumph in the $25,000 main event of the World Poker Tour World Championship.
Rettenmaier maintained the chip lead during this eight hour tense final table against Philippe Ktorza, Michael 'The Grinder' Mizrachi, Nick Schulman, Steve O'Dwyer and Trevor Pope. They ultimately succumbed to the German player's skills but not without walking away with six figure payouts.
When Mizrachi finished in the number three spot for $424,618, the heads up was front and center, with Rettenmaier around 2 million chips ahead of his prior opponent Philippe Ktorza.
It was the beginning of a thrilling battle with the lead changing hands a number of times and double ups by both players as the environment grew increasingly electrifying with each hand.
The battle drew to a close after approximately 200 hands played. Rettenmaier had done it and his opponent took the runner up prize of an impressive $805,310.
Rettenmaier had taken nearly $1.2 million in prize money - possibly his largest win yet - the WPT title and trophy as well as a well-deserved seat in the 2013 WPT World Championship.
