Grand Opening, Grand Closing

Ryan Riess' late entrance in this event could end up being an early exit as well.

Soon after sitting down he had one player at his table all in for 2,675 holding {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} against {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}.

It looked good for the 2013 WSOP Main Event champ on the {3-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop, but the {5-Clubs} turn gave his opponent a gutshot that the {2-Spades} river completed.

He's now down to 1,100 and it appears this might not be his day. Earlier, the WSOP had planned to unveil his championship banner in the Amazon Room, but unfortunately they misspelled his name on it, transposing the 'i' and 'e'.

"No big deal," Riess told PokerNews. "Everybody makes mistakes. They tell me it'll be fixed by Tuesday."
