Of the 736 that entered one of the three flights that took place over the last few days, 111 will be paid. A min-cash here is worth €1770, and we expect we expect the bubble to burst at around 6pm this evening (although, given the number of 'All-in's' I've head just 10 minutes into play, it could come much sooner).

And what are the prizes up top?

Well, with the €500,000 guarantee being surpassed early into Day 1B, it eventually swelled to an impressive €706,560 by the end of Day 1C. That means it'll be a nice payday for the eventual winner here, who will receive €133,400 when they are crowned on Sunday.

Here are the final table pay-outs:
