Yep, 2012 is the year of Marvin Rettenmaier.
The German pro made history yesterday, as he became the first player to ever capture back-to-back WPT titles.
Rettenmaier won the season-ending WPT Championship in May. Three months later, he has won the season-starting WPT Merit Cyprus title, banking $287,784. He defeated Artur Voskanyan (Gesundheit!) heads-up for the title. Voskanyan earned $184,020 for second.
Rettenmaier seized control of the final table early and never looked back. He now has 10 major live event cashes in 2012 and around $1.8M in earnings for the year.
