Ryan played poker for about five years when he won his WORLD SERIES OF POKER (WSOP) bracelet in 2007 in the $2,000 Seven-Card Stud Hi-Low Eight-or-Better incident.
Ryan went up opposite a field of 340 performers to reach the final table that included the redoubtable Greg Raymer.
When PokerIce.com asked Rayan about Greg Raymer at the final table, Hughes said:
“I thought he was a violent gambler. I had to get lucky twice to strike him out.
It’s always probable since he was the best gambler at that table at that match.”
It was Hughes first triumph, may be because of few final table experience at the 2006 World Series of Poker that provided him some serious skills at the table as well.

Rayan had three in 2006, two in 2005 and one in 2004.
Not to forget his several other cashes in smaller incidents, with a twins of wins at the California State Poker Championship and the L.A. Poker Classic.
