Ryan "TheSims" Hohner is the most recent winner of a partypoker US Network Online Series tournament, taking down Event #3: $5,000 GTD 6-Max R/A for the top prize of $2,074. Hohner outlasted a field of 96 entries at $20 apiece. Another 211 rebuys and 32 add-ons were also recorded, generating a total prize pool of $6,102 to exceed the guaranteed prize pool by more than 20%.

Hohner is no stranger to poker success, with over $654,000 in live tournament earnings. His largest cash came in his home state of New Jersey, when he took second place in the 2018 Borgata Winter Poker Open $600 Kick-Off Event for $245,967. He also cashed in that same event this past January, following it up with another in-the-money finish in the 2020 WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open $3,500 Main Event later in the month.

He was able to amass the chip lead as hand-for-hand play began with 11 players remaining, and further increased his lead by way of a knockout and numberous pots without showdown as bubble play went on for over 20 minutes. The chip lead remained his all the way until heads-up play began, when eventual runner-up "plumberboy699" entered the match with a slight advantage after eliminating "schaf4206" (4th place) and "bmweiser (3rd place) in quick succession.

However, Hohner quickly found pocket aces and was able to get stacks in on the turn with an eight-high board when "plumberboy699" had an eight. He found himself with more than a five-to-one chip advantage, and ended up with all the chips less than a level of play later, putting the final stamp on the tournament with trip threes to earn a payday of more than $2,000.
