German Poker Pro Marvin Rettenmaier Caps Off An Incredible 2010

Marvin Rettenmaier managed to cap off a remarkable 2010 by winning the Spanish Poker Tour in November, where he outlasted a 120 player field to collect the €111,000 ($145,159) first place prize.
The impressive win represented the young German pro’s biggest score to date and with it, took his live tournament earnings to $460,286 since cashing in at his first event in March, 2010.
On the last day of play at the €3,200 Main Event tournament, nine remaining hopefuls gathered around the final table vying for a chance to take down the lion’s share of the €300,000 prize pool.
At that time Marvin Rettenmaier was the chip leader and managed to hold onto his advantage to the very end, playing a patient game but defending his blinds when necessary to stay ahead of his competitors.
By the time heads-up play had been reached, Marvin Rettenmaier found himself squaring off against French glamorous actress and model Claire Renaut. Unfortunately for Renaut she found herself at a 10 to 1 chip disadvantage and was soon all-in holding A-3 only to lose to Rettenmaier’s J-9 who turned a straight.
Claire Renaut picked up €60,000 for her runner-up finish in the competition, while Marvin Rettenmaier walked away the deserved winner after eliminating  five of his eight final opponents. He collected an impressive €111,000 ($145,159) for his dominating performance.
Marvin Rettenmaier victory at the prestigious Spanish Poker Tour was a fitting end to 2010, a year in which the Team Titan member was named by Germany’s PokerOlymp site as the Poker Newcomer of the Year. His list of achievements that year included cashing three times at the WSOP, a 2nd place finish at the Marrakech Poker Open for $73,880 and a victory at the €1k IPT Nova Gorica for $49,717.
We can now look forward to seeing how the prodigious, young poker pro fares in 2011.
