Is this kind of deal standard?

If I was there (lol, need to play a comp to start with) I would want to keep some element of the prizes laddering?

Feel like it really takes something away from it when they lock up set amounts, but now there is no difference between busting 6th or 2nd.

Just me?

Nah, I thought the same.  Why not take some off the top and distribute it to the different finishing positions so that they've still got something to play for (for each position they ladder), rather than just playing for first.

Agree, why it is always "chop it up and play for x ftw"?

Doesn't make sense to me.

Deal seems off since Linton wanted 375 when 9handed with 8m, now is getting 375 with 6 left and 11m.

Deal doesn't take into account any skill edge either.

I would've defo dealt in his shoes fwiw, the money is so ridiculous, very likely never be in this situation ever again.

Earlier deal wouldn't have left anything to play for, which Linton is decent favourite to get. So deal does look about right

You could flatten the prizes too.....

650k
425k
275k
200k
150k
100k

But then if you look at those figures compared to what Pete has locked up, makes me think locking up just under 2nd place with 200k to play for isn't a bad option!

Was just wondering,if 1 player had refused to deal would it have carried on as structured...please forgive me im new to poker.Good luck the Nottingham lads and remember the 25xxl tonite and rest of tourneys at DTD from now on, its time to start helping Rob recover his money.

In a word yes, if one player had said no deal they'd have carried on.
Thank you sir....Been in pro rugby league for over 40yrs,winning is everything to us and money is just a bi product of your sucsses or failure,i cant imagine any situation i would deal in normal circumstances but as they left 200k in and there is to be a winner it makes sence to deal.....

Rugby league players move clubs for money. Players move to the NRL for more money. Players even move to union for more money - so to say players are just in it for the glory and to win is inaccurate.
Of course we are in it for financial gain ,my point was that the financial gains rely on wins and losses...in the case of these 6 players they have managed to achieve both by dealing and still having a chance to win the event plus an extra 200k,,,Just for the record you dont have to move clubs,ive been at Hull KR for over 40 yrs as player and now physio.

Lest we forget Pete might not of had an option. If it is laid out as "take it or leave it" (and I understand there were 2 deals), then there is no negotiation.

Although most negotiations would say never have closed offers, in this scenario, where the money means a lot to everyone, it is an excellent strategy
