2013 WSOP Main Event Winner Crowned

Dustin Gouker : November 6th, 2013
WSOP November 9


The World Series of Poker main event crowned a champion as the November Nine came to a conclusion on Tuesday night.

Ryan Riess defeated Jay Farber in heads-up play to take the bracelet and more than $8.3 million at the Rio in Las Vegas. Farber won over $5.1 million for second place.

The biggest hand of the night came a little more than an hour after the start of heads-up play. In hand No. 204 of the final table, with the chip stacks fairly even, Riess won nearly 60 million chips, calling down Farber with pocket jacks. Riess held the lead the rest of the way against Farber, who came into the day as the chip leader.

You can watch the winning hand here:

Riess, 23, continues a recent trend of young main event winners, since the event started going on hiatus until the fall starting back in 2008.

You can read more about heads-up play in the official WSOP report.
