Ryan Fee’s poker journey began back in 2006 as he transitioned from Warcraft III to the virtual felts with $300 and a dream. Within the first year, Ryan had grinded his way through the micro-stakes cash games to accrue $17,000. After another year of continuing to move up online, the Philadelphia native had grown his bankroll to well over $100,000 when he decided to take a fateful trip to Costa Rica for the LAPT San Jose Main Event in 2008.
An impromptu registration into that tournament resulted in Ryan taking home $285,000 for first place and further established the then 20-year old as a force in both the online and live arenas.
Ryan has continued his poker success since that time and enjoyed a breakout year in 2014 with a runner-up performance in the APPT Macau Main Event for $1.28 million. This past summer, he teamed up with fellow Upswing Poker featured pro Doug Polk to win the first-ever “Tag Team” bracelet event at the World Series of Poker.
Both high stakes poker pros have extended their social media outreach in 2016 while casting live on Twitch and YouTube. The video clip embedded below was recently uploaded to Upswing Poker’s YouTube account and provides insight into the life of a modern-day professional poker player.
