Question for the management at Prime Social: where is the other $29k for the prize pool of your tournament? Last night I saw on Instagram that the prize pool is 291k with one more flight to go, the morning turbo flight. To be exact the prize pool stated $291,795 with one flight remaining. The flight this morning had 124 entries at $245 a head would equate to $30,380. However if you check the prize pool as it stands it shows the prize pool is $292,795. Seems a bit shady if you ask me or if they gave away 29k throughout the other flights please correct me if I'm wrong.
Hey there, thank you for your concern for the integrity of the game we all love so much. We feel very strongly about transparency and game integrity as well. During the "Houston Showdown" event we had a total of 1,315 entries, this generated a TOTAL prize pool of $322,175. Of that $322,175, $1,000 was awarded to the chip leader of each flight (Totaling $10,000), $1,000 was awarded to 5 participants who "bagged" or qualified for day two multiple times (Total of $5,000), and $14,850 was awarded to participants as Day 1 payouts. That left a little over $292,000 to be paid out on the Day Two Restart. All of the bonus payouts, and day one payouts were listed on the structure sheet that was available to everyone who played the event. Again, thank you for your concern for the integrity of the game we all love, I hope this response gives you some peace of mind and clarity.
