Does $5m for a $250000 buyin seem just a little off to anyone else?

The total prize pool will be around $20m - so that's 25% of the total.

But it still seems a huge buyin for the potential gains.

These guys will be doing it for the prestige of beating each other however. A lot of respect to be had winning against the best.

i imagine the bankroll you must have if you rebuy into such tourney with your own money (no staking)- lets think- since this is somewhat of a hybrid between mtt and sng due to relatively small entrants field (more sng to be fair)- you should have somewhere around 50-100 buy ins min- which equates in having around $20 millions of a roll at the very min Confused nice

This kind of torneys are only for pro players that are sponsored or for multimiljonairs that wanne gamble.

I don t think there are a lot of players with a bankroll bigger thanm 20 million $.

So it s a little propaganda to keep most of the players dreaming about winning millions of $.

more for the not-realistic poker players (donks)

Now thats a really nice car, i only saw a f430 spider and a 458 coupe so far Big Smile

As for the game the buy in and prizes look pretty fair to me, i mean i saw tournaments that had a similar prize distribution.
