Day 5: Let The Main Event Begin!

It's hard to believe we are already on Day 5 here at Run it Up Reno! With 12 events already in the books, everyone is hungry for big money and the Main Event RIU Gold. 

Day 1A of the Main Event begins today at Noon, with $100,000 in guaranteed prize money. Blinds are 40-minutes long and players start with 25,000 in chips. Re-entries are unlimited and registration is open until the start of Day 2. With two starting days, there is plenty of time to get in on the action. A full structure sheet is available here

The second tournament of the day is slated to kickoff at 5:00PM. The $125 Omaha 8/Stud 8 6-Max is sure to draw a crowd as all mixed games have had stellar turnouts. Each of them has drawn over 100 entries and this tournament is unlikely to be any different. Registration closes at 7:40 at the completion of the seminar break. 

Last but not least, the 8:00PM tournament is the $85 NLH Big Antes event. Registration closes at 10:00PM and will be the last chance for the day to claim RIU gold.

Another seminar is scheduled for 7:00PM in the Sorrento Ballroom with Jason Somerville and tonight's new guest speaker is Dan O'Brien. As always, plan to learn lots and take plenty of notes! All tournaments will pause at 6:55PM for a synced break and will resume at 7:40PM.

For those interested in taking a quick break from poker, tonight is Game Night. This begins at 10:00PM and the game choices will be unlimited! Head to the Capri Ballroom for some fun and games - you will not be disappointed!
