The players in the opening event are on their first break of the day, and the prize pool has officially hit record-breaking numbers.

In April of this year, Eric Nelson took down the $235 NLH Kickoff Event after topping a field of 184 entries for a record-setting prize pool worth $36,800! At the end of Level 6, there are 187 entries with just over an hour left to register, bringing the running prize pool to $37,400 for now.

If the numbers in this event are any indication of how the week is going to go, we're in for yet another extraordinary Run It Up Reno!
