2013 WSOP Main Event Winner - Ryan Riess

Congratulations to Ryan Riess! The Michigander was only fifth in chips going into the final table and played terrifically.

The youngest player at the table has now won four of the six years of the November Nine.1

Local favorite Jay Farber held on to reach heads up but couldn't overcome Riess's huge chip advantage. Amir Lehavot started second but finished third, while Sylvain Loosli started sixth and moved up to fourth.

J.C. Tran, who began with the chip lead, quickly went from a fifth of the chips to fifth place. He did have bad cards though, so it's not a huge surprise that he had the lowest finish of any November Nine chip leader.2
