€5,300 EPT Main Event

Seat 1: Ryan Riess, 28, East Lansing, Michigan/USA - 3,585,000

Ryan Riess

Former World Champion Ryan Riess needs little introduction. Having won the 2013 WSOP Main Event, Riess already has a place in poker history. That $8,361,570 prize will be hard to top for the 28-year-old, but Riess has continued to deliver excellent results in the years after his great run in Las Vegas. He's racked up a total of $14.2 million, and his pedigree includes several six-figure cashes in the EPT high buy-in tournaments where Riess regularly rubs shoulders against the top players in the world.

While based in Vegas, Riess has frequently been visiting Europe to travel around the poker circuit. He will play on his first EPT Main Event final table tomorrow, but he'd already come close to making the last table in a PokerStars-sponsored Main Event; he finished 15th at PokerStars Championship Bahamas back in 2017.
