Day 1: Kick-Off, PLO, and Turkey Burgers

Run it Up Reno Kickoff

Run it Up Reno Kickoff

From the "Ballroom" that is Twitch chat to the Capri Ballroom at the Peppermill Resort Spa Casino, it's time for Run it Up Reno. To wet the appetites of the early arrivals, the Kickoff Tournament starts at noon. Then more Warriors are set to show up just in time for the Turkey Burger Welcome Party.

With a PLO and the always hilarious (and possibly loudest of all the RIU tournaments) All-In or Fold tournaments also scheduled for Day 1, RIU Reno will quickly reach peak fun. The fun won't stop until the RIU Main Event Champion is crowned next Monday.

With names like Gretorp, Zlasher, and Ice3lade the Run It Up Warriors sound a bit like something from Lord of the Rings. There are no rings or wraiths, but this is definitely the closest thing to a poker fantasy camp. RunitUp.com will be bringing you updates all week long. You can also follow @RunitUpReno on Twitter.
