Ryan Riess wins 2013 WSOP

WSOP, 2013-11-08, by TwoGun

Once again, a relatively unknown 20-something wins the WSOP Main Event. This year, Ryan Riess, a 23 year old pro poker player from Michigian, won the event for a cool $8.35 million first place prize.

Riess began his career as a poker pro by winning the WSOP Circuit Event in Hammond, Indiana and took home $239k. It seems he used this as his bankroll to start his poker career and parlayed it to a huge payday this week.

Here are the final results:

1st: Ryan Riess - USA - $8,361,570
2nd: Jay Farber - USA - $5,174,357
3rd: Amir Lehavot - Israel - $3,727,823
4th: Sylvain Loosli - France - $2,792,533
5th: JC Tran (chip leader at beginning of the final table) - USA - $2,106,893
6th: Marc-Etienne McLaughlin - $1,601,724
7th: Michiel Brummelhuis - Netherlands - $1,225,356
8th: David Benefield - USA - $944,650
9th: Mark Newhouse - USA - $733,224
