Hand #101: Moon Kim Out in 7th Place ($118,966)
Level 25: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante

Hand #101 - Moon Kim raises from the hijack to 160,000, and Michael Mizrachi asks for a rough count of his stack. Kim says, "I started with about one-point-two (million)." Mizrachi calls from the small blind.
Marvin Rettenmaier reraises from the big blind to 630,000, and Kim quickly moves all in for 1,060,000. Mizrachi thinks for a bit before he folds, and Rettenmaier calls with 99. Kim turns over AQ, and he'll need to improve to stay alive.
The board comes J7346, and the pocket nines hold up for Marvin Rettenmaier to win the pot and eliminate WPT Bay 101 champion Moon Kim on the TV bubble in seventh place.
Marvin Rettenmaier - 6,715,000
Moon Kim - Out in 7th Place ($118,966)
With Moon Kim's elimination, Joe Serock clinches the WPT Player of the Year title. Congratulations to Joe Serock!
