Total RG Main Event Entries: 74
Daniel Romero is in charge of the chip lead but the names mentioned on the leaderboard are making their way toward him as Day 2 draws near.
From the start of Day 1A, Kirk Smith has been gradually building his stack and is making his way toward 70,000. The larger portion of Smith's $36,000 in career earnings stem from a Rio Daily Deepstacks win last summer worth $16,000. Smith cashed in the May 2016 RunGood Main Event in Tulsa will look to keep his stack chugging toward Sunday's Day 2.
Cold weather is prime time for plumbers but Erick Norvell decided to put down his pipe wrench today and play poker instead. Norvell's entry into this event has been prosperous so far as he finds himself among the chip leaders. Norvell cashed in the iNinja Main Event in Council Bluffs in July of last year and could be heading for another trip to the payout cage.
