That money will be spread out amongst the final 192 players here today, with the minimum payout going for $700. First place will of course get the lion's share of the prize pool, which in this case will be $152,102, as well as a $15,400 seat to the WPT Championship at the end of the season. Nearly everyone at the final table will lock up a five figure payday, as ninth place just misses that mark, paying out $9,820.
