Hand #47 - Michael Mizrachi raises to 88,000 from under the gun, Marvin Rettenmaier calls in middle position, and Moon Kim calls from the hijack.
Joe Serock is on the button and moves all-in for around 720,000 total. Mizrachi folds, then Rettenmaier reraises all-in, having both Serock and Kim covered. Kim folds.
Rettenmaier turns over AK and Serock is racing, as he holds 99.
Serock puts his backpack on and starts to slowly saunter from the table as the dealer puts out the Q77 flop. Seeing he is still ahead, Serock slows his gait. The K on the turn puts Rettenmaier out front though, and Serock is a good ten feet from the table by the time the Q comes on the river.
Serock is eliminated on the hand, but there is still a chance for him to win something. He is the current leader in the WPT Player of the Year race with 2,200 points. The race isn't over just yet though. Season X Bay 101 Shooting Star Champ Moon Kim can tie Serock with a fourth place finish and can take the POY title outright with a third place showing or better.
Marvin Rettenmaier - 3,150,000 (79 BBs)
