I’ve always wanted to do something for our past RIU Reno champions, like a leaderboard or something, and now letting any past RIU Reno trophy winner potentially represent us at the PSPC in The Bahamas, it’s super cool, such a cool opportunity. I pitched the idea to PokerStars and they thought it was super awesome. We have a reputation for the event being fun
