For those of you who aren’t following the minute to minute updates at www.pokernews.com, you may have missed this gem from BJ Nemeth:
With 72 Players Left, A Chop Would be Worth 9th-Place Money
With 72 players left, there is still $37,866,039 left in the prizepool. If everyone agreed to chop the rest of the money, each player would receive $525,917. By comparison, ninth place is worth $525,934 -- just $17 more. The numbers just get more compelling.
Interesting idea. I doubt the suits at Harrah’s or ESPN would allow it, but could they stop it if all the players agreed?
