Official Numbers & Re-Entry Stats
Level 8: 300-600, 75 ante
The tournament staff has released the official prizepool information, along with some additional stats about re-entry. Here's a spoiler -- the re-entry process proved very popular among the players.
With 757 total entrants (322 on Day 1A and 435 on Day 1B), the total prizepool is $2,570,015. The final 81 players will finish in the money, and first prize is worth $758,085.
There were 181 players eliminated on Day 1A, and 116 players (64%) re-entered on Day 1B. A couple of those re-entrants (one to three) technically survived Day 1A, but forfeited their chips to try again on Day 1B.
The 757 total entrants counts some players more than once; there was actually only 641 unique individuals in this event.
