Rettenmaier Leads WPT Championship; Bonomo High-Roller Big Stack

Joe Serock is your WPT Player of the Year--for now. Unless Moon Kim takes over the lead.

It’ll be a short day at the 2012 WPT Championship, as the final nine play down to six for the TV final table.

Leading the way is Germany’s Marvin Rettenmaier with 3,757,000. He’s followed by Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi with 3,124,000.

Steven O’Dwyer continues his hot streak, ending the day stacked third overall with 1,643,000. Yesterday’s chip leader Hafiz Khan managed not to blow up, ending fourth with 1,641,000. Nick Schulman is fifth overall with 1,350,000.

Joe Serock took over first place for the WPT Player of the Year award by finishing 10th in the event. Moon Kim (what? who?) could still claim the title though–he currently sits sixth in chips.

In related news, it was an impressive turn-out for the Super High-Rollers event, as 32 players dropped $100,000 of their bankroll just a few days before the WSOP begins.

Of the 19 who survived Day 1, Justin Bonomo ended play as chip leader with 1,433,000.

Proving that at least some people who were Team Full Tilters still have money, Erik Seidel and John Juanda both entered, and both ended play as short-stacks.
