Marvin Rettenmaier takes huge stack to WPT final table

Friday, 25 May 2012

The six-handed final table at the World Poker Tour World Championship has been reached with PartyPoker’s newest member of their pro team, Marvin Rettenmaier, taking a big chip lead into the televised final table which will play out tomorrow.

His stack of 6.71m is more than double that of second place Michael Mizrachi’s 2.56m. However with blinds at 30k/60k there’s still plenty of room for Mizrachi to catch up. Also in contention are Steve O’Dwyer at this third WPT final table and former November Niner Nick Schulman, who is looking for his second WPT title.

Each of the six is guaranteed $155,571 for their efforts with the top prize of $1,196,858 going to the winner. The final table line-up is as follows:

Seat 1:  Michael Mizrachi  -  2,560,000  (43 BBs)
Seat 2:  Marvin Rettenmaier  -  6,715,000  (112 BBs)
Seat 3:  Steve O'Dwyer  -  2,035,000  (34 BBs)
Seat 4:  Nick Schulman  -  1,555,000  (26 BBs)
Seat 5:  Trevor Pope  -  1,480,000  (25 BBs)
Seat 6:  Philippe Ktorza  -  895,000  (15 BBs)
