Yesterday the sixth day of the WPT World Championship was played at the Bellagio in Vegas. There were only 9 players left and only 6 of them would make it to the final table. Marvin Rettenmaier had a big lead and could just have kicked back and relaxed, waiting for the small stacks to take out each other.

But Rettenmaier doesn't seem to be the type of player who ever stops to gamble as he continued getting involved in big pots. Rettenmaier decision to gamble really paid off as he finished the day with a gigantic chip lead. In fact, he has a little bet less than half of the remaining chips. Now the question is: Can anyone stop him from taking down the title and the $1,196,858 first prize on Saturday's televised final table? 

Below is the final table lineup:
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)

Rettenmeier or Mizrachi would be the favourites here I think.

Ret has a monster chip advantage, unless they get unlucky they should at least finish 2nd

When we are in the game and we have that feeling, nothing can stop us. If Marvin Rettenmaier was having good cards in good position, why not play them? This is just showing he doesn’t play scared money, and being leading, he is the main opposition, the one who everyone should be scared of. I usually don’t do it, but this is the way poker should be played, eliminating opponents, no matter your rank.

the thing that someone holds a huge chip lead doesn't mean a lot in poker- when we are talking of let's say football, when one team has 5-0 lead we know that the game is in the bag...miracles happen, but very rarely- but with poker it's a different thing, huge lead can be easily caught, two double ups and everything is back to normal situation...
