Jay Farber and Ryan Riess To Battle for the 2013 WSOP Main Event Title

Nível 39 : 500,000/1,000,000, 150,000 ante
Final Two: Ryan Riess & Jay Farber
Final Two: Ryan Riess & Jay Farber

The 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event final table has been cut down to its final two players. Tomorrow, the second leg of the conclusion to this epic event will take place between Jay Farber and Ryan Riess. Each will be looking to etch his name in poker history as the 2013 WSOP Main Event champion and grab hold of the $8,361,570 first-place prize plus coveted gold bracelet.

Entering Tuesday’s final day of play, Farber will start with the chip lead, holding 105 million in chips to Riess’ 85.675 million. If his day goes anything like start-of-the-day chip leader JC Tran’s did on Monday, Farber may not end up a happy camper.

Mark Newhouse entered the day towards the lower end of the chip counts, and he would be the first player eliminated. After he doubled up on Hand #5 by sucking out against Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, Newhouse fell 30 hands later at the hands of Riess.

On his final hand, Newhouse was all in with the {9-Spades}{9-Clubs} against Riess’ {A-Spades}{K-Hearts}. The flop, turn, and river ran out {K-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} to end Newhouse’s run in ninth place.

Just two hands later, David Benefield was out in eighth place. He was all in and at risk against with the {K-Spades}{2-Spades} against Farber’s {A-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}. The board came {Q-Clubs}{10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{2-Diamonds} to give Farber the winning straight.

Dutchman Michiel Brummelhuis was then next to go in seventh place. He was able to double up holding pocket nines on Hand #53, but then ran another pair of nines into Riess’ pocket aces just two hands later to hit the rail.

Six-handed play lasted quite a long time before McLaughlin was eliminated in a massive, massive hand that gave Farber around half of the chips in play.

On Hand #157, McLaughlin and Farber raised back and forth preflop before all of the money went in. Farber had the {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} against McLaughlin’s {K-Spades}{K-Clubs} for a huge cooler, and the board ran out {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{J-Clubs} to send McLaughlin out the door.

Just four hands later, Tran was off to the payout desk in fifth place. His final hand came when he shoved the {A-Hearts}{7-Spades} and lost to Farber’s {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts} thanks to a king on the flop.

Frenchman Sylvain Loosli was eliminated in fourth place on Hand #170, moving all in with the {Q-Hearts}{7-Clubs} and finishing second best to Riess’ {A-Clubs}{10-Hearts}. On the very next hand after Loosli’s bustout, Amir Lehavot was eliminated in third place by running two sevens in Riess’ pocket tens.

Despite a late surge to end the night, Riess will enter Tuesday night's final duel behind in chips, but this one will be anybody's game. Riess also might have a slight advantage in terms of rest because when Farber was asked what he was doing tonight to prepare, his response was, "We're all going out to celebrate."

The action will kick off at 6 p.m. Tuesday local time, and you can follow all of the hand-for-hand action right here on PokerNews.com.

Hand #171

There was a dead button in Seat 1 following the elimination of Sylvain Loosli in fourth place.

Jay Farber folded in the cutoff and Ryan Riess raised to 1.9 million from the small blind. Amir Lehavot three-bet all in for 21.15 million with the {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds} from the big blind and was called by Ryan Riess holding the {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}.

The flop came down {Q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Hearts}, and Riess was still out in front with Lehavot's tournament life on the line. After the {2-Diamonds} landed on the turn, Lehavot was one card away from elimination.

The {J-Diamonds} landed on the river, and that was the end of the line for Lehavot. He was eliminated by Riess, earning $3,727,823 for his third-place finish.

Hand #170

Jay Farber had the button, and folded. Sylvain Loosli moved all in for 9.825 million from the small blind, and Ryan Riess quickly called from the big blind.

Riess: {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Loosli: {q-Hearts}{7-Clubs}

The room fell silent as the dealer fanned {9-Hearts}{k-Spades}{8-Hearts}, changing very little, and the {9-Clubs} fell on the turn. Only a queen or a seven could save the Frenchman, but it was not to be as the {a-Diamonds} completed the board. Riess' rail exploded, but so too did Amir Lehavot's supporters, excited that their player has laddered up to at least third place.

Ryan Riess was on the button, and he raised to 1.7 million. Amir Lehavot moved all in for 11.2 million from the small blind, and Riess called.

Lehavot: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Riess: {a-Clubs}{6-Spades}

The flop fell {5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}, giving Riess a few backdoor straight draws, but those were erased when the {10-Hearts} turned. The {7-Clubs} completed the board, and Lehavot doubled to 23.6 million chips.

Hand #161

JC Tran had the button in Seat 7.

Tran moved all in for 9.925 million, and Jay Farber called from the small blind. Tran held the {A-Hearts}{7-Spades} and was up against Farber's {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}.

The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}{9-Hearts} to give Farber the lead and knock the two-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner out of the lead in this hand. The turn brought the {5-Diamonds}, and that meant Tran needed only an ace on the river to stay alive.

The {6-Hearts} wasn't what Tran was looking for, giving Farber the pot, and sending the start-of-the-final-table chip leader to the rail in fifth place. He earned $2,106,893 for his finish, and Farber moved over 100 million in chips.

Hand #157

Jay Farber had the button in Seat 9.

Marc-Etienne McLaughlin raised to 1.6 million from the hijack seat to start things off. Farber attacked with a reraise to 3.8 million, and McLaughlin fired back with a reraise of his own, making it 8.7 million total. Farber took some time, then put in another raise and made it 19.4 million to go. The ball was now in McLaughlin's court, and he moved all in for 38.6 million. Farber quickly called.

When the hands were turned up, the pot was massive as were the two hands — Farber had the {A-Spades}{A-Hearts} versus McLaughlin's {K-Spades}{K-Clubs}.

The flop came down {8-Spades}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} to keep Farber's pocket aces in front. After the {J-Diamonds} landed on the turn, McLaughlin needed a king on the river to stay alive. If not, Farber would have half of the chips in play.

The river was the {J-Clubs}, missing McLaughlin and eliminating him in sixth place. McLaughlin earned $1,601,024 for his finish, while Farber shot up to nearly 95 million in chips.

Ryan Riess had the button in Seat 4.

Jay Farber raised to 1.3 million from the hijack seat. Amir Lehavot reraised to 3.1 million from the small blind, and Farber made the call.

The flop came down {10-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, and Lehavot bet 2.3 million. Farber called, and the dealer landed the {9-Diamonds} on the turn. Lehavot led for 4 million, and Farber called.

The river was the {A-Hearts}, and Lehavot was first to act with 12.65 million in chips left in his stack. After taking his time, Lehavot opted to check. Farber checked behind. First to show, Lehavot rolled over the {K-Diamonds}{J-Clubs}. Farber tabled the {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for the winning hand and was pushed the pot.

Sylvain Loosli started the hand with the button, and called a raise from Marc-Etienne McLaughlin, who opened to 1.2 million from under the gun. Both blinds released, the dealer fanned {10-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}, and McLaughlin led out for 1.4 million. Loosli called.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds}, McLaughlin opted to check, and Loosli fired out 2.2 million. McLaughlin called.

The {2-Clubs} paired the board on the river, giving each player at least tens and deuces, and McLaughlin checked again. Loosli slid forward 4.8 million - nearly a half-pot bet - and McLaughlin screwed his face. Shuffling ships with his left hand, he leaned back in his chair and studied his opponent. Finally, after around two minutes, he folded.

Sylvain Loosli started the hand on the button, and JC Tran raised to 1.35 million from the hijack seat. Ryan Riess called out of the small blind, and the dealer fanned {q-Spades}{10-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Riess knuckled, Tran continued for 1.1 million, and Riess called.

The turn brought the {9-Spades}, putting four cards to a straight on board, and Riess checked again. Tran fired a second bullet worth 2.35 million, Riess called, and the {a-Diamonds} completed the board.

Riess rapped the felt for a third and final time, Tran checked behind, and Riess showed {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for a flopped set of tens. Tran mucked, and Riess now has over 60 million chips.

Hand #55

Sylvain Loosli had the button in Seat 1.

Fresh off his double up, Michiel Brummelhuis opened to 1.5 million from the small blind after action folded to him. In the big blind, Ryan Riess reraised to 3.2 million. Brummelhuis moved all in for 15.55 million, and Riess snapped!

Riess showed the {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}, while Brummelhuis once again had pocket nines — the {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}.

The flop was clean for Riess and his rockets when the {K-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} fell. The turn was the {2-Diamonds}, leaving Brummelhuis needing a nine on the river.

The dealer burned one last time and dealt the {7-Hearts}... the last card Brummelhuis would see in the 2013 World Series of Poker Main Event. He finished in seventh place for $1,255,356, while Riess moved back into the lead in a big way.
