Every World Series of Poker Main Event final table carries a unique flair and 2013 earns its place in history with the aesthetics around the November Nine. Dancing pandas, Dan Bilzerian, and five different nations represented make for one of the best final tables of the era.
Now available on PokerGO are the two episodes that comprise the final table with sublime poker and exciting play in both.
The action kicks off right away with the elimination of Mark Newhouse. 2014 saw Newhouse fulfill his destiny as the ninth-place finisher in consecutive years. This year opens with Newhouse on the short stack and looking elimination dead in the eye.
Ryan Riess plays a role in the elimination of Newhouse and starts his climb from the middle of the pack toward victory.
A final table is incomplete without some controversy and Sylvain Loosli steps in to fill that void. The Frenchman plays a strong game but gets a little out of line with some potential angle shots. The table gets into a roar and generates some bad blood with seven-figures on the line.
Jay Farber’s rail is fit for a nightclub promoter with shenanigans abound and celebrities on the sidelines. It’s a night of entertainment fit for the Penn and Teller Theater.
Farber shows off his months of training with a major semi-bluff against the start of final table chip leader, JC Tran. Marc-Etienne McLaughlin catches the wrong side of Farber’s run good when he loses a heartbreaking pot in poker’s biggest cooler in a pot for the chip lead.
The latter part of the action centers around Riess. The Detroit Lions jersey represents Riess’ home and he brings home the second Main Event title of the century to Michigan.
Riess has gone on to a stellar career since his win with a U.S. Poker Open final table included. For at least one night, Riess is the “best player in the world.”
