Ryan Weiss

Heads-up play got underway and the match was settled before the WSOP Circuit ring was transported to the table.

Ryan Weiss opened to 600,000 from the button and Ken Berman moved all in. Weiss quickly called with a heads-up monster and Berman was in trouble.

Weiss: QsQc
Berman: Ac3h

Weiss had a huge lead, faded the 9h6h2h flop but it gave him a heart sweat. The 2d turn changed nothing and the match, and the tournament was complete after the 6d river.

Tournament staff counted down both stacks and confirmed that Weiss had Berman covered by a few thousand to lock up his first career WSOP Circuit ring.

Tournament recap to come shortly.

1st: Ryan Weiss – $70,718 + WSOP Circuit ring
2nd: Ken Berman – $43,814
