Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Who's That Guy?

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Eric Cloutier is being very loquacious at one of the secondary feature tables where Ryan Riess is looking to defend his title. As our reporter came over to Riess to grab his chip count, Cloutier joked, "Why you talking to him? Who's that guy?" and then referenced his stack, which was the largest at the table at 225,000 in chips.

Riess laughed, and the dealer nodded over to the banner that hung about 50 yards away bearing Riess' winner photo from last year's Main Event.

"Oh, he's that guy," said Cloutier, a sly grin coming over his face.
