The final and official number of entrants in the $50K HORSE event is 148. That means the prize pool is the same as last year – $7,104,000. Payouts are different, though, as it seems Harrah’s tried to even out the players’ scores a bit.

2008 payouts:

1st – $1,989,120
2nd – $1,243,200
3rd – $781,440
4th – $568,320
5th – $444,000
6th – $355,200
7th – $284,160
8th – $230,880
9th-10th – $177,600
11th-12th – $159,840

    That’s a pretty nice adjustment there. Jen, not to give you “assignments” publicly while I sit at home watching replays of the Germany/Turkey match-up work from home, but if you get a chance, can you find out from Effel or Nolan or someone if they applied a new formula to all the tournaments, or just this one?

    I like the flattened payout structure … and the fact that this huge HORSE event has the exact same number of entrants as last year gives us quite the unique scientific example to break down some slight varioations between 07 and 08 … and theoretically show just how tight Harrah’s game is this year.

    Sure, Dan. I’ll get on it.

    BTW, are you hungry from working all day? Can I arrange to have some food sent to your home? Or can I bring you some coffee? I’d be happy to drive it over in my spare time. 😉
