congrats to the dudes who won those events, including the main event. browsed through the names/usernames of the winners and top 10 finishers and sadly haven't found any mobbits out there. why is this happening, why? we have so many wonderful players who are able to flush money down the drain on a regular basis...

I always agree with a deal in these tourneys. In normal conditions, you invested $22 and have the chance to win almost $90k, what big difference can make less $5k in this case? I guess the 4th e 5th prizes are wrong, they must be misplaced. Still it would have been nice if they have found a way to all get over $50k. But the difference isn't that big, so i guess no one worries with that!
If you make a deal to ensure you get a somewhat even money after your chipcount then you aren't there to take down the tourney - you are just there to make money. Yeah, it's a nice payout on twenty bucks but so does getting a couple hundred places below ITM. And of course nobody plays these just to arrive ITM - they are in it 2 win it.

For a $22.00 entry plus 50k entrants i do not no how long they play but i am pretty sure it would be something over 8hrs. of play. I really can understand the five remaining players opting for a deal wit this kind of money it is a very good ROI so why continue and risk of getting less than you would get in the deal.
