LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 23-year-old poker professional from Las Vegas by way of Michigan has won the World Series of Poker main event, lasting roughly 3 1/2 hours in a dramatic card session to push past his last opponent for the $8.4 million title.
Ryan Riess emerged with the title late Tuesday after a session that proved a showcase for his skills amid the unpredictability of no-limit Texas Hold 'em.
Riess put his final opponent Jay Farber all-in with an Ace-King.
