Bryce McVay

Bryce McVay needed to make a move to get back even in the heads up match but could not make up any ground. His final stand came when he moved all in for 370,000 and Martin Ryan called with a chance to lock up another WSOP Circuit ring.

Ryan: Ah2d
McVay: Kc5s

Ryan was in good shape, needed to dodge the live cards, then hit aces up on the Ad4d2h flop. The Td turn left McVay with three out, any non-diamond three, but the Ts river ended the tournament. McVay earned $13,862 for his runner-up finish while Martin Ryan banked $22,416 plus his fifth career WSOP Circuit ring.

Full recap to come shortly.

1st: Martin Ryan – $22,416 + Gold Ring
2nd: Bryce McVay – $13,862
