  • Survivor legend Rob "Boston Rob" Mariano bubbles Run It Up Reno Main Event final table.

The final table of Jason Somerville's 2015 Run It Up Reno $565 Main Event was set just before midnight on Saturday with the elimination of Survivor legend, Rob "Boston Rob" Mariano in ninth place. On the final hand, Mariano failed to hold with pocket sevens against the {A-}{J-} of Mike Murphy after the money went in preflop. Murphy hit a jack on the flop and stayed in the lead from there. Mariano scored $2,760 for his finish.

Leading the final eight was Jesse Capps, but only by a very slight margin over Suja Juice co-founder Eric Ethans. Capps is a 26-year-old poker pro from Nevada with just under $250,000 in live tournament earnings. He fired two bullets into this event and made the second one work by bagging up the chip lead heading into Sunday's final table. Capps finished Day 2 with 2.16 million in chips. Ethans finished hot on his heels with 2.03 million.

The other faces at the final table belong to Murphy (1.1 million), Gina Stagnitto (950,000), Kristin Kane (685,000), Nick Aguilera (585,000), Steve Kujubu (375,000), and David Carey (205,000). Carey is the only non-American at the final table, hailing from the UK.
