World Champ Ryan Riess to Kick Off 2014 High Roller Tour at PCA

Ryan Riess will be one of the players putting up $100,000 at the PCA.

This year's PokerStars Caribbean Adventure is kicking off with the $100k Super High Roller and world champ Ryan Riess is taking the opportunity to start his worldwide high roller tour.

After Riess took down $8.3 million in Las Vegas he offered fans and friends the chance to back him in eight major tournaments in 2014.

The package includes buy-ins ranging from $10k to $100k and the first stop is in the Bahamas January 5th.

The move comes as no surprise to anyone who saw Riess' WSOP Main Event winner interview when he said he was the best poker player in the world. What's certain is Riess will have the chance to test himself against the best in less than three weeks.

“It will be great to have Ryan at the table after his big win at the WSOP,” said Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov, who won the PCA $100k in 2011 for $1.5 million.

“It’s great that the PCA attracts so many of the game’s best players, and the $100k Super High Roller is always a spectacular event to start off the proceedings.”
