Jason Somerville Releases Schedule for Run It Up! Reno Event at Peppermill Casino

  • Jason Somerville announces schedule for his Run It UP Reno Event at Peppermill Resort Casino from October 20-25.

Last month, PokerNews had the exclusive to announce Jason Somerville's Run It UP! Reno Event, a six-day poker festival that will take place at the Peppermill Reno from October 20-25.

"I'm extremely excited to be announcing our first official RIU event," Somerville told PokerNews. "We've done RIU events in the past, but they've always been a part of others events, they never lived on their own. RIU Reno will be hosted at the Peppermill Reno, which is a beautiful resort."

Now, the official schedule for the series has been released. Among the highlights are:

  • Welcome party at EDGE nightspot
  • Qualification to buy-in to $2,000 added Tuesday Takeoff Tournament
  • UFC athlete-hosted morning workouts
  • Poker seminars hosted by Jason Somerville and surprise guests
  • Special Run It Up games, contests, and prizes TBA
  • Multiple trophy poker tournaments
  • Main event final eight players live stream on Twitch TV hosted by Somerville at 1 p.m. on Sunday, October 25
  • Survivor viewing party hosted by "Boston" Rob Mariano and Tyson Apostol

For me, RIU Reno is not just about playing poker, but also having a fun experience from the get go.

"The RIU Reno series is unlike anything that has ever really existed before in poker," Somerville continued. "For me, RIU Reno is not just about playing poker, but also having a fun experience from the get go. I'm trying to invite a variety of interesting people that are going to come and make the event special regardless of how your poker goes, regardless whether or not your aces hold up during the tournament, you're still going to have a good time."

The Main Event is the first engineered and designed specifically for Twitch, which will live stream the final table with Somerville serving as commentator, provided he doesn’t make the finale. In addition, the PokerNews Live Reporting Team will be providing live coverage and daily podcast from the event.

"PokerNews couldn't be happier to be working with Jason Somerville for his Run It UP Reno event in October," explained PokerNews Editor in Chief Donnie Peters. "The RIU brand has grown immensely, and all of Somerville's endeavors promote positive growth of the game. PokerNews shares that same vision. Having Somerville as our resident pro on the PokerNews Podcast for the past two summers has helped take our product to the next level, and we hope to do the same for the RIU event this Fall."
