With New Jersey hosting the WPT Championship for the first time ever at the legendary Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic, we thought it would be cool to look back at Mad Marvin’s 2012 title.
As reported by Paul Oresteen: “The Bellagio hosted 152 players which culminated in a $3,686,000 prize pool to pay the final 18 tables. The last player standing was Marvin Rettenmaier after defeating Philippe Ktorza for the seven-figure payday.
The “Mad “ German owned all that was poker in 2012 including winning the WPT’s highlight event and winning the 2012 BLUFF Player of the Year crown in the closing days of the year. Rettenmaier was joined at the final table by Michael Mizrachi, Nick Schulman, Stephen O’Dwyer and Trevor Pope for one of the most exciting WPT Championship final table broadcasts.
Rettenmaier defended his WPT Championship title by becoming the first back-to-back WPT champion when he won the WPT Cyprus Classic. Those two wins alone accounted for nearly 40 percent of Rettenmaier’s Player of Year points total.”
