The final table is set in the opening event here at Run it Up Reno! It's a stacked group, as expected, with Ryan Leonis leading the way with more than double the stack of Melly Wang who sits in second place.
Here's a look at the seating assignments and chip counts:
Seat 1: Ryan Leonis - 760,000
Seat 2: Kyle McCarthy - 225,000
Seat 3: Eric Nelson - 205,000
Seat 4: Ty Kohler - 265,000
Seat 5: Floyd Achtzehnter - 200,000
Seat 6: Andrew Cha - 285,000
Seat 7: Hyde Sjogren - 245,000
Seat 8: Gary 'The Captain' Tighe - 105,000
Seat 9: Melly 'Team Chewy' Wang - 360,000
Leonis is no stranger to RIU, as he comes in as the chip leader with three final tables on his resume, including a win last October in Event 3 $85 NLH Win the Button for $1,595. Andrew Cha sits in the middle of the pack and looks to win his fourth career RIU trophy. Melly Wang sits in second in chips and looks to best her runner-up finish in this same event from last October.
Good luck to the final nine! Stay with us as we crown a winner.
