      Hi all,

      Noob question regarding the above.

      How is it calculated? Does PP take a cut of the prize fund, then split the prize between the finishers; or does it take another cut of the finishers money as well?

      For example, 6H SnG top two take the money, $3 entry fee ($18 total prize fund). The winner taking $8.64; I'm assuming 2nd takes about $6 which leaves $3.36 which I assume goes to PP (baring in mind the 2nd place figure is made up)?

      Does PP just have the £3.36 or does it then take another swipe at the $8.64 and $6 winnings as well?

      Cheers

      i think the rake money is in the entry fee....
      for example u buy into 1dollar sng
      0.20c will go to rake
      and all players but 0.80 into price pool
      and all players get theyr PPs for 0.20c (i think its 0.2PP, but i can be wrong also.. )

      Hi Helipacter,

      as sebralane already wrote in the buy-in the registration fee is already included. So for a $3 SnG the paid out price pool isn't $18.

      If you try to register a window pops up where you can see the price pool and the distribution for first and second place.

      Best regards,
      Hannes
