Marvin Rettenmaier WPT Cypress Classic Win Historic

With his win at the 2012 WPT Cypress Classic this week, poker pro Marvin Rettenmaier has made history. 

Rettenmaier won the WPT Championship in May to end Season X and, with his victory in the WPT Cyprus Classic to kick off Season XI, becomes the first player to win back-to-back tournaments in the history of the WPT, Poker News Daily noted

To date, Germany’s Rettenmaier has won just over $2.5 million, much of that within the past 12 months, and has a total of 42 cashes, including 6 first place finishes. 

His run this year has been nothing short of amazing with 10 tournament cashes and close to $2 million won over that time period. 

The final tally from the WPT Cypress Classic: 

1. Marvin Rettenmaier, $287,784

2. Artur Voskanyan, $184,020

3. Ran Azor, $118,360

4. Victor Parashiv, $87,610

5. Joseph El Khoury, $65,770

6. Kiryl Radzivonau, $52,590
