The Fifty50 prize structures don't quite seem to add up, and I can't figure it out. Here's the first few levels of them, and maybe someone can tell me what I'm missing.

Each tournament has 10 players who receive 1,500 chips each, for a total of 15,000 chips.

\$1.50's:

\$1.35 + \$0.15.

Prize pool: \$13.50

5 players win \$1.35. Total of \$6.75.

15,000 chips, 4c per 100 chips, total of \$6.

\$6.75 + \$6 = \$12.75, 75c less than the prize pool.

\$1.39 + \$0.11.

Prize pool: \$13.90

5 players win \$1.39. Total of \$6.95.

15,000 chips, 4c per 100 chips, total of \$6.

\$6.95 + \$6 = \$12.95, 95c less than the prize pool.

\$3.50's

\$3.26 + \$0.24.

Prize pool: \$32.60

5 players win \$3.26. Total of \$16.30

10c per 100 chips, total of \$15.

\$16.30 + \$15 = \$31.30, \$1.30 less than the prize pool.

\$3.30 + \$0.20

Prize pool: \$33.00

5 players win \$3.30. Total of \$16.50

11c per 100 chips, total of \$16.50

\$16.50 + \$16.50 = \$33.00, exactly the amount of the prize pool.

If it weren't for that last one, I might think it was an attempt to get more rake, but as it is, some of the numbers add up, but most don't. What am I missing?

Most likely, the money per 100 chips are rounded and they just don't show exact number, which in first example would be 4.5c per 100 chips

Can you check how much money per 100 chips you got? (I assume you play these)

Hi Salivanth

yes it is just rounded up.
