Jay Farber -- 2nd Place

Hand #261

Ryan Riess had the button, and he raised to 2.5 million. Jay Farber reraised all in for 14 million, and Riess called. Farber tabled the {Q-Spades}{5-Spades} and his tournament life was on the line against Riess' {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}.

The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}, taking away Farber's outs to a queen because it would make Riess a Broadway straight. The turn was the {3-Clubs}, putting Farber down to just one more card to double up and stay alive.

The dealer burned one last time and dealt the {4-Diamonds}! That proved to be the final card of the tournament as Ryan Riess has held on to become the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event champion.

Farber finished in second place for $5,174,357 — a finish he shouldn't be disappointed with.
