23-Year-Old Mich. Native Ryan Riess Wins $8.4 Million at WSOP
Ryan Riess walked away from the World Series of Poker's main event a very rich man. The 23-year-old Michigan native pushed past his final opponent to claim the $8.4 million title early this morning.
'Riess the Beast' as he's known to fans, forced Jay Farber all in before the flop with an Ace and King of hearts in the final hand. See the video here.
“Everything played pretty standard. No one had a huge blow-up and bluffed off their whole stack. Everyone was playing really solid and the cards ran my way today,” Riess told ESPN.
