The 27-year-old Capps has over $300,000 in live tournament cashes in his career, including a runner-up finish in this very event two Run it Up Renos ago for $25,240. All told, Capps has fifteen career Run it Up Reno cash finishes, including his current tournament where all of the remaining 23 players are guaranteed at least $1,165.
