Posted on Wednesday, November 06, 2013 by "T".
A big congratulations to Ryan Riess, the champion of the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event!! Riess had about 20 million chips less than Jay Farber when the final day and heads-up began, but he played very well and grinded Farber down to a short stack early in the match. Although Farber managed to double up and narrow down Riess's lead to a 2-1 margin at one point, he still didn't stand a chan[...]   Read more » 2013 WSOP: Ryan Riess Is The World Champion!

I told you the tall one will win, also special mention on the chip lead he manages to grind back and give himself an advantage, sad for Jay who could not keep his chip lead.

Ryan Riess looks like Fellani, tall and afro hair, he just lack a bit of musculature and sick clothes like the rap people.

Congrats again was a nice final hand!!

It just struck me that I couldn't give a s**t about this. This should have been played in the summer, now it just seems like some joke SNG with the insanest prize pool.

The delay takes away any kudos of the winner and makes a d**k of the WSOP main event.

I'm not saying the guys don't deserve the money or whatever but as a spectator it's like whats the point? Let's have the world cup in brazil and then play the final two years later. Lets sit a university exam a year after leaving.

Sweet prize for him especially when you think that he is only 23 years old Smile

If he is smart and makes some good investments he could be basically set up for the rest of his life Big Smile
He definately waited for a strong hand at the last hand.

"I'm extremely excited," Riess said. "I'm excited for what the future holds."
I'm not shure he is really best player. He is only 236th by Global Poker Index. I do not herd before this final table about Ryan Riess, so I do not think that one win is a measure of skill in poker)))

could not believe the way Riess bullied Farber on nearly every hand. Farber should have 3 bet or even 4 bet more and if he was beat he was beat. better to go down fighting than to lay down. $5 mill should ease the pain though!

just how unlucky was marc etienne mclaughlin on this table? i thought he played almost perfect poker then his kings ran into farbers aces. he seemed to be controlling the table and looking very relaxed. if he had got that hand through he would have been in a commanding position and i think we would have been talking about a different world champion today. unlucky marc! better luck next year

what your saying was said done and dusted 3 yrs back, it actually turned out a better deal for poker community and is the norm now,,, it also gives final tablists a extra income itcn sponsorship deals, advertising rights, tv interviews, etc etc plus rervenue from wsop syndicating the filmied event,

it's much better deal and brings more players/fish donkers into game, which is what is needed ias players bad losing ones drop out..so to keep it levelledl, .the players get a 100k upfront + time off after wsop long week or more, so come back fresh n ready somore better viewing n preparation tomake it entertaining, ie fans n family brought in country clash atmoslphere all makes up some good televised live finale.

There not gonna stop that all that now, Diamond all da best Diamond
