7th Place - Steve Ryan

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship      

Steve Ryan

Steve Ryan got all-in pre-flop against Gil Sacks (bb).  Unfortunately for Steve, Gil held pocket Aces.  Steve had Q9 and needed help.  He got none as the board came 8 6 4 2 5.  "The first hand he plays all day and he runs into Aces" commented LJ Sande.

Steve Ryan finished in 7th place, earning $82,740.

Steve is a poker pro from New York and his biggest cash before today was in September 2008 when he finished 3rd in the $1k No Limit event, earning almost $41,000.  He's also won a WSOP Circuit preliminary event.

He's quite a baseball player, too.  He played for 13 years and was inducted into the Little League Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
