WSOP 2013 Final Hand

WSOP 2013 Final Hand

Ryan Riess A-Hearts K-Hearts versus Jay Farber Q-Spades 5-Spades

Farber was all in with the {Q-Spades}{5-Spades} against Riess' {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. Reiss was definitely a favorite before the flop but Farber's pocket cards were very live.

The flop brought the {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Farber needed a five to stay alive. Pairing his queen would give Riess a Broadway straight. The turn was the {3-Clubs} and Riess only needed to dodge the last bullet.

The {4-Diamonds} paired the board on the river and the celebration in Riess' camp began. His rail stormed the stage and engulfed him before piling on top of him. Chants of "Riess the beast!" were probably heard down on the Las Vegas Strip from the Penn & Teller Theater. Riess managed to shake off his pack of well-wishers and congratulated Farber on a job well done.
