Rettenmaier Busts to Chen

Marvin Rettenmaier

The ten-high board was all but rushed away while Marvin Rettenmaier was waiting for a payout runner to arrive and the chips of the German were shipped over to table neighbor Andrew Chen. Both hole cards were still visible, Rettenmaier's    and Chen's   .

According to Chen, Rettenmaier had opened from under the gun and four-bet all in for 29 big blinds with his ace-queen suited, Chen looked him up with the superior kicker and that ended up vital to award the pot to the Canadian.
