Riess Slow and Steady

• Level 8: 400-800, 100 ante
Ryan Riess

It was folded to Ryan Riess in the cutoff and he opened to 1,700. The player in the big blind was the only one to look him up. The flop came {J-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} and the player in the big blind checked to Riess who bet 1,700 and was called. Both players would check the {5-Clubs} turn.

The river was the {9-Diamonds} and Riess's opponent threw out two T1,000 chips for a bet of 2,000. Riess quickly called.

"One pair," said Reiss' opponent, not wanting to reveal his hand. The 2013 Main Event winner waited and eventually was shown {4-Clubs}{4-Spades}. Reiss turned over {J-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for a pair of jacks to take down the pot. Riess started the day with 70,225 in chips and has been taking a slow and steady approach today, avoiding the big pots and picking up the small ones.
