2013 WSOP winner Ryan Riess sets sights on PCA $100K Super High Roller

20 December 2013

ONCHAN, Isle of Man -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Recently crowned World Series of Poker 2013 Main Event Champion Ryan Riess will be heading to the Bahamas in January to participate in the $100,000 Super High Roller tournament at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA), PokerStars.eu has revealed.

Riess, a 23-year-old poker pro from Michigan, USA, battled through a field of 6,352 players this summer to reach the final nine, and returned on November 6 to take the title and the $8.4 million first prize. This will be the first tournament that he will participate in since his landmark win in Las Vegas.

The $100,000 buy-in three-day-long festival opener will take place at Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas from January 5, 2014. Riess will join a host of other players such as Daniel Negreanu, Dan Shak, Matt Glantz and Steve O’Dwyer, who have already confirmed their seats. He said: “I am extremely excited for my first PCA. I have always been most successful in big games. In the past I have tended to downplay smaller games so I am really excited to play my first $100k. I have a really good feeling about the PCA next month and I am already counting down the days!”

Team PokerStars pro Eugene Katchalov, who won the Super High Roller in 2011, said: “It will be great to have Ryan at the table after his big win at the WSOP. It’s great that the PCA attracts so many of the game’s best players, and the $100k Super High Roller is always a spectacular event to start off the proceedings.”
