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)
