EPT9 Grand Final: German wunderkind Marvin Rettenmaier wins again

'Mad' Marvin Rettenmaier has won another EPT trophy following up from that €365,300 win in the EPT Prague High Roller last December. That result not only bagged the gregarious German a big bag of cash, but also pushed him over the finishing line in one of the Player of the Year races, just ahead of the prolific Dan Smith.

This result takes Rettenmaier over the $4m in live tournament winnings, good for 4th on the all-time money list behind Pius Heinz ($8,971,109), Tobias Reinkemeier ($5,941,896) and Philipp Gruissem ($4,848,947).
