Cat sees a profit
That means cat will see a profit, since the payout structure indicates that players who end the tournament between 442nd and 504th place receive $26,389. So that's the minimum Ryan will get starting today.
And of course, 1 percent of that is $263. I paid $200 for the stake, so $63 is pure profit, not bad for biting fingernails and sending e-mails.
Ryan currently is in 132nd place, with 117,000 chips, according to the magazine's count. (Ryan's blog indicates he has 103,000).
Still, he is way better off than most of the remaining field.
Good hunting today, Troublecat!
