WSOP 2013 Main Event: Jay Farber And Ryan Riess Battle It Out For Poker Glory

WSOP 2013 Main Event: Jay Farber And Ryan Riess Battle It Out For Poker GloryThe waiting to decide who will be crowned the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event Champion, as well as claim the $8,359,531 top prize, is almost over as Jay Farber And Ryan Riess prepare to battle it out one more time for a place in the WSOP history books.
Las Vegas nightclub promoter Jay Farber (photo right) has an impressive entourage of supporters railing him and is vying to become the first amateur to win the WSOP Main Event since Joe Hachem in 2005. In addition, Faber seems to have made a fan in Vanessa Selbst, who yesterday tweeted; “Jay_Farber_LV is a boss and he is dominating! Seriously he is only one playing exciting poker.”
Nevertheless, the 28 year-old said he used to play cash poker online before Black Friday, and earlier this year, explained: “I’m not a tournament player. It’s frustrating coming from being a cash-game player to playing 12 to 14 hours a day. But I really enjoyed the main event because it’s like playing a deep stack cash game.
Ryan Riess, (photo left) on the other hand, is a full-time pro who was also the youngest player of the original 2013 November Nine. At yesterday’s final table, the 23 year-old was responsible for eliminating 4 of his fellow finalists, while fellow US player Jay Farber took care of the other three. Commenting on last night’s action, Ryan Riess said:
“Everyone was playing really solid and the cards ran my way today. It worked exactly like I envisioned it. I was kind of thinking it would be me and Farber.”
When the action resumes at 5:45 p.m. PT tonight at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, the blinds will be at 500K/1,000K with a 150K ante. Jay Farber will then be starting on a 105m (100bb) stack compared to Riess’s 85.675m (85bb).
Both men are likely to be two very happy players right now as they are both guaranteed at least $5,174,357 for their incredible efforts. Nevertheless, at the top of their minds will be the chance for shroud themselves in the glory associated with becoming a WSOP Main Event winner.
