As registration winds down and the tournament field wanes to below 48 players, the "max" of the mix-max downshifts from eight players per table to eight tables of six.
The headliner is Table 29, which has both "JCarverpoker" himself Jason Somerville and former RIU Reno Main Event runner-up Jesse "jessejcapps" Capps. It once also featured popular poker streamer and personality Kevin "kevinmartin987" Martin until a big knockout at the hands of Alex "Ezraw0" Lavinthal moments ago, giving Lavinthal the table lead.
Table 20 is no slouch either. In seat 1, Vincent "vintroverted" Newland held a tenuous lead over the competition that included RIU Reno Event 2 champ Jake "Radioheadz19" Irvin, but the tides turned on Vincent and he was knocked out by the RIU champion a few rotations later.
As the field shrinks, so too will the table maximums here in the RIU Mix-Max, so stay tuned!
