Two new articles at PokerNews.com in the last week, for anyone who read my last blog post on WSOP payouts over the years.
The first went a little deeper into how the formula for the payout structure works, teasing out the derivative of the increase from level to level, and what the $10 million first-place guarantee did to it.
That’s partially blown out of the water by yesterday’s news that the guarantee’s been dropped and ~300 extra places will be paid $15,000, a result of an online survey and other feedback from players since the original schedule announcement. I compare the actual 2014 payouts with what how the new payout structure would work in today’s article.
And that’s probably it, unless they change their minds again.
