EPT9 Monaco Day 2: Money, money, money

The prize pool for the PokerStars and Monte-Carlo® Casino European Poker Tour Grand Final has been announced, and the winner of this thing will almost get as many euros as there are letters in the official name of the event.

There's an amazing €1,224,000 up top from this €10,000 event, with the top 80 players getting paid. Here's how it breaks down.

1 - €1,224,000
2 - €842,000
3 - €467,000
4 - €321,000
5 - €251,000
6 - €189,000
7 - €137,000
8 - €103,000

9-10 - €76,000
11-12 - €60,000
13-14 - €47,000
15-16 - €37,000
17-24 - €30,000
25-32 - €25,000
33-48 - €21,500
49-64 - €18,500
65-80 - €16,000

The bubble will likely burst early on day three -- that's the way it tends to go -- so players will first need to make their way through today's six levels before they even think of earning any dough.
