American Duo Jay Farber And Ryan Riess Left To Fight It Out At Final Table Of WSOP Main Event

Written By: Kimberley | November 5, 2013 | Posted In Poker News

The World Series of Poker (WSOP) November Nine reconvened yesterday and after a long and arduous day at the felt the final nine players were reduced to two, with Americans Jay Farber and Ryan Riess left to fight it out for the right to be this years Main Event Champion.

Mark Newhouse was the first to depart the action when his pocket 9’s lost out to the A K of Ryan Riess, with Riess hitting top pair with a flop of K 10 7, with the turn and river offering no further help to Newhouse. David Benefield was next to go losing out to chip leader Farber, but a payout of $944,650 will no doubt have softened the blow a little.

Michiel Brummelhuis was to exit in seventh place, but no further exits occurred for nearly four hours, but then like London buses two came in quick succession with the exits of Marc-Etienne McLaughlin and JC Tran finishing in sixth and fifth respectively. McLaughlin will consider himself a little unfortunate as his pocket Kings came up against Farber’s pocket Aces, and with a board of 8 7 2 J J offering him no further assistance his great run at this years final table was brought to an abrupt end.

Sylvain Loosli and Amir Lehavot also departed in quick succession, in fact the pair departed in successive hands, with both players losing out to Ryan Riess. When the action gets underway again this evening Farber will have a slight advantage over his fellow countryman, but it is only a slight one, as Riess still has 85 million chips which equates to roughly 85 big blinds. It could be another long night, but it could all be over in a couple of hands, but whatever happens we will bring you all the news and the eventual winner as soon as the final hand is played out, but for now below is a list of the payouts for the seven players who departed yesterday evening.
