It's hard to believe Run it Up Reno has almost come to an end here at Peppermill Casino. It's Day 7 of 8 and it is also Day 2 of the Main Event! On top of this, there will be a WSOP Main Event Final Table 'November 9' viewing party at 9:00PM. Stick around as we watch both the RIU and WSOP Main Events play down to a winner over the course of the next two days.
Day 2 of the Main Event begins today at Noon. Players may still register until cards are in the air after which time registration will close and payouts will be calculated and posted shortly after that. Scott Thomson bagged 250,100 chips and leads the 82 runners who have moved on to Day 2 here at RIU Reno. Jesse Capps, who has a handful of final tables (including a win!) this series, is second in chips with 241,600. Steve Kujubu rounds out the top three with 182,000. There are way too many notables to list, but some of them include Jason 'JCarver' Somerville (147,500), Andy 'AndyTheTimid' Camou (107,700), Jimmy 'Untitled2jc' Cappucci (97,900), WSOP bracelet winner Loren Klein (80,500), Kevin Martin (69,500), Kevin Gerhart (43,200) and Dan O'Brien (23,600).
