Wow what an unbelievable cash winning! I never heard something about this player, but normally he mustn´t play no another game in his live with this 5$ millions. And he was a verry Young guy and can enjoy his live in luxury
I have to disagree with you DaCapo, he certainly needs to secure his future, but to never play again? seems to be a good player and an avocation, so he "must" play again, assuming (prob bad assumption) he had 100% of his own action, he could invest 4 mil, sorting out a house etc for around 750k, leaving 250k to play WSOP and with his now reputation, he can bankroll as much as he wants to reduce the risk profile. Good luck all mobsters

A huge congratulations to Rainer Kempe for winning 2016 Super High Roller Bowl! A heads-up match lasted over 4 hours? Rainer Kempe and his fellow German Fedor Holz must have been exhausted when the tournament finally ended after midnight.
