The total purse will be divided by five (5 days). Each day’s purse will be split evenly among those winning for that day. If there are no winners for a particular day, the un-won prize money will be split evenly among the purses of the remaining days. In the event that there are no winners on the last day (Friday), the un-won prize money will be evenly split among the previous 4 day’s winners. If there are no winners for the entire week, the money will be refunded.
Example: Let’s say the total purse for the On the Board Reward is $200,000.00. That figure would be divided by 5 (5 days) giving each day a purse of $40,000. Those who are in this Calcutta and remain on the board at the end of each days weigh-in will evenly split the purse for that day. If there is only one winner, he would take the entire $40,000.00. Two winners would get $20,000.00 each and so on.
