23 Year Old Ryan Reiss Wins WSOP Main Event for $8.36 Million

Ryan Reiss started the final table fifth in chips, with one of the worst seat positions. The big stacks were on his right, the short stacks on his left. Any aggression risked being overpowered by the big stacks, while his stealing range needed to be tight because the short stack optimal play is to shove a wide range over his late position raises.2013 WSOP Champion Ryan Reiss

Originally from Michigan, Reiss has been playing the WSOP circuit events around the US for the last two years. Last year he managed 10 cashes with three final tables, including a second place and $239k in the WSOP Circuit Horseshoe Hammond Main Event.

Jay Farber was the only amateur player to make the final table, and played superbly, but couldn’t overcome the momentum that Reiss built up. The final hand saw Farber all in as the underdog with Qs-5s against Reiss’s Ah-Kh. Two live cards failed to hit anything on flop, turn or river, and Reiss’s supporters immediately mobbed him with cries of “Riess the beast!”

6,352 players started the event back in July, and despite the vast prizes paid out, only one walked away truly happy – the 2013 WSOP Main Event Champion, Ryan Reiss.
