“Mad” Marvin Rettenmaier, who became a PartyPoker sponsored pro just days before the start of the tournament, worked his way through the difficult field to claim the WPT World Championship title and nearly $1.2 million in prize money.

It was a cooler hand that ended the match, as Philippe Ktorza three-bet shoved preflop with two red Jacks only to be called by Marvin Rettenmaier, who held two black Kings. When the board provided no help, Ktorza was eliminated in second place

Marvin Rettenmaier said: “This was simply amazing. The heads-up was such a roller coaster and it feels so great to win such a big, prestigious title in my first week as a newly sponsored PartyPoker pro.”
