Marvin Rettenmaier has just been eliminated against Bruno Benveniste and maybe a hand, a few orbits earlier, may have sown the seed for the Germans demise?
In the earlier hand Benveniste raised to 5,000 from the button and Rettenmaier three-bet to 15,000 in the big blind. Benveniste made his decision simple by moving all-in and Rettenmaier mucked his hand.
In the elimination hand, a few orbits later, Benveniste raised on the button again but this time Rettenmaier moved all-in and Benveniste called.
Rettenmaier received no help from the poker Gods and he was eliminated in 17th place for €9,936
