Hand #246: Ryan Riess opened to 600,000 from under the gun and Michiel Brummelhuis three-bet to 1.6 million from the cutoff. Sylvain Loosli four-bet all in from the big blind with the big stack. Both Riess and Brummelhuis folded.
Hand #247: Carlos Mortensen raised to 600,000 in the cutoff and took down the pot.
Hand #248: David Benefield raised to 600,000 in the cutoff and Ryan Riess three-bet to 1.925 million from the small blind. Benefield mulled it for about 60 seconds before he folded.
Hand #249: David Benefield raised to 600,000 in the hijack, Sylvain Loosli called from the cutoff, and Ryan Riess three-bet to 2.225 million from the button. The blinds folded, Benefield folded, and so did Loosli after about 30 seconds in the tank.
Hand #250: Ryan Riess raised to 600,000 in the cutoff and Rep Porter three-bet shoved for 6.45 million from the button. Action folded back to Riess who after about 45 seconds opted to call.
The window card was paint, but the flop came down bringing no help to Porter. The turn left him only six outs to survive, and the river was not one of them. Porter finished in 12th place, earning $573,204.
Riess, meanwhile, is up to 17.65 million.
