Event 20: Ryan Eriquezzo - 1st Place

$1000 + $90 No Limit Hold'em (6-Max)

Ryan Eriquezzo - 1st Place - $71,978

Ryan Eriquezzo joking said earlier, "What do I have to do to get on the blog?"

This will do it Ryan.

Congratulations to our champion Ryan Eriquezzo who just earned $71,978 for his 22.7 hours of a fantastic, grueling, entertaining, poker marathon.

Winning this tournament was redemption for Ryan as he was so disgusted and disappointed after making a mistake and dusting off his chip lead in the $200 where he finished 8th.

Ryan loved this structure and said he had 100 big blinds heading into the final table. He knew it would be a grind and was prepared to play patient.

This is the longest Ryan's ever played poker and it's his biggest cash to date.

Congratulations to Ryan (Danbury, CT), who had his rail birds surround him and the trophy he duly deserved.
