Who wants to be a millionaire, hmm? Actually, chances are good that our eventual champion is already a millionaire as we speak — the 30-player starting field had well over $100 million in total combined tournament cashes. But those who aren't already poker millionaires have another shot here this week. With registration closed and 32 entries in the till, there is a prize pool of $3,136,000 up for grabs. The final five players will earn their shares of that with the min-cash being worth more than a quarter-million dollars. First place is five times that, though, just over $1.25 million.
Here's the breakdown of the prizes:
In addition to the loot, the champion will receive the specially designed Shamballa bracelet you see pictured above, worth more than $20,000. And some serious bragging rights after taking down one of the toughest tournaments of the year.
