Marvin Rettenmaier had a massive lead when the final table kicked off last Saturday, and even though the final table included so many good players very few thought that anyone would have a chance against Rettenmaier, who had played absolutely amazing poker the last 2 days of the tournament.
However, after many hours of play on the final table, Rettenmaier had made it to heads-up against Philippe Ktorza. Ktorza had the lead at this point and was playing very well, but it didn't take long before Rettenmaier won an all in with TT vs A4 and overtook the lead. And not long after he called Ktorza's all in with KK against JJ. The board ran out blank and Rettenmaier was awarded with almost $1,2 million for his amazing achievement.

1) Marvin Rettenmaier, $1 196 858
