Ryan Riess (foreground) has a fan club here at The Lodge Casino made up of Dylan (left) and Jimmy (right). Together, the trio makes up a group they call “We Da Best”. Today is all about Riess, though, as his rails sports T-shirts reading “Reiss the Beast”.
Riess is an accomplished WSOP Circuit grinder whose resume now boasts three final tables including a second-place finish in the Horseshoe Hammond Main Event last October for $239,063.
He currently sits second in chips with four players remaining in Event 8.
