Poker Pro Ryan Young Remembered on ESPN

ESPN featured an “in memory of” segment on poker pro Ryan Young late Tuesday evening (August 28, 2012) between the hours of 8 pm EDT and 9.  The segment is likely to be repeated.  It aired during the Republican Convention coverage. 

The 2007 WSOP bracelet winner was killed in a car accident in Torrance, California late last month.  Few details were known about the crash at that time.

Gambling911.com was one of the first to report on the tragedy after a few other poker pros tweeted about what had transpired.

Young had won over $1.6 million in live tournaments including a 1st place finish at the 38th Annual World Series of Poker Event #35 – WSOP No Limit Hold’em. 

He also finished 2nd at the Wynn Classic in 2008. 

Since his death, those who knew Young have only had nice things to say about him.  He was only 28 and this remains a great loss to the poker community.
