It all comes down to this. There are three players remaining at the final table of the Season X WPT World Championship – Marvin “MadMarvin” Rettenmaier, Philippe Ktorza and Michael “The Grinder” Mizrachi – but only one can be named Season X WPT World Champion. As you can see from the chip counts below, Rettenmaier holds a commanding chip lead over Mirachi and Ktorza heading into three-way play and will look to ride that lead to his first WPT victory.
Rettenmaier – 11,575,000
Mizrachi – 1,925,000
Ktorza – 1,740,000
However, with a big name talent like Mirachi behind him, nothing is guaranteed. And don’t count out the amateur Ktorza. Think Sean Jazayeri beating “Doc” Sands heads-up at WPT LA Poker Classic this year and remember that an amateur can hit all the right cards and take down the most talented of players. Without spoiling anything, we can tell you that the ride isn’t easy for anyone at this final table and things don’t quite go the way you might think they would. This rollercoaster ride of an episode is a fitting end to an amazing World Poker Tour season and one definitely worth tuning in to watch.
WPT World Championship – Part 3 airs Sunday night at 8pm & 11pm local time on FSN and will end when one of these three players earns the right to have their name engraved on the WPT Champions Cup.
