$25,000 High Roller

You Mad, Marvin?

Marvin Rettenmeier

There's no doubt that Marvin Rettenmaier had a heck of a year in 2012; in fact, just last month he won the EPT Prague €10,000 No Limit Hold'em-High Roller event in the Czech Republic for $477,479. Unfortunately for him, that was 2012 and this is 2013.

Rettenmaier's demise came when Team PokerStars Pro Vanessa Selbst opened for 8,000 from early position and he moved all in for roughly 80,000 from the big blind with {J-Hearts}{10-Spades}. Selbst made the call with {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds} and had Rettenmaier in dire straits.

The {9-Diamonds}{A-Hearts}{10-Clubs} flop delivered Selbst a set, but the {Q-Diamonds} turn made things interesting as Rettenmaier picked up an open-ended straight draw. The dealer burned one last time and put out what would be Rettenmaier's last card in the 2013 PCA $25,000 High Roller... the {J-Clubs}.
