Martin Ryan picks up 8th WSOPC ring in two years
This past weekend, the $400 Monster Stack event at the WSOPC Harrah's Cherokee came to a close after Martin Ryan secured the title. Ryan picked up $70,226 and now has a circuit gold ring for almost each of his fingers. He has won eight rings in just over two years, putting him in a tie for seventh place on the all-time WSOPC leaderboard.
Ryan has picked up three rings in the past three months. His first of the year came at the WSOPC Seminole Casino Coconut Creek $1,125 NLHE event, for which he was also rewarded $21,375. After that, he took down the WSOPC Choctaw Durant $600 NLHE tournament for $19,323 and his second ring on November 10.
Although he's on a role, Ryan doesn't believe he'll be able to participate in any more games this year. He hails from Trinidad and Tobago and says that it's time to return home. He explains, “I’m promising everybody I have to stop because back home in Trinidad they need me. I run a game.”
Ryan picked up his first circuit ring in November 2016 after shipping the $365 Pot-Limit Omaha event at the WSOPC Sonesta Maho Beach Resort & Casino. Only a day later, he took his second prize, winning the $365 NLHE tournament in the same series. The next month, he emerged victorious at the $1,125 NLHE event at the WSOPC Bicycle Casino and followed that up with another win two months later at the $580 NLHE event at the Palm Beach Kennel Club series.
Across his career, Ryan has accumulated $452,410, according to Hendon Mob. That is enough to put him in third on Trinidad and Tobago's all-time money list behind second-ranked Jeremy Pantin with $571,705 and Ryann Goindoo with $756,370.
