IIRC, the initial event was a flop.
The million dollar prize fund was based on a full field of players, with the entire prize fund coming from entry fees, and the buy in was something like $20K each. How many pool players do you know who can put up $20K? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/whistle.gif

I think they only had around 8 players enter. They ended up changing the format and playing some sort of round robin tournament for whatever the prize fund ended up being with that number of players.

I didn't attend this event, and very few others did. This information is mostly second hand and comes from my very poor memory. I don't guarantee the accuracy of any of it. Hopefully, someone has some first hand information they will share.
