Locals Battle As WSOP Final 2

LAS VEGAS (AP) — The richest prize in poker will not go to an old hand this year, and the winner will be a resident of Las Vegas.

That much was clear as a 23-year-old poker professional originally from Michigan and a Las Vegas club promoter who considers the game a hobby prepared to make a final run at the World Series of Poker top’s prize on Tuesday.

Ryan Riess and Jay Farber beat out a field of 6,352 entrants in the no-limit Texas Hold ’em tournament in July, and then eliminated seven finalists during a tense all-night session Monday and Tuesday at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino off the Las Vegas Strip.

Farber left the brightly lit stage in the wee hours of the morning Tuesday vowing to spend the rest of the night clubbing in triumph.
