The total purse will be divided by three (3) 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 (Sunday), the un-won prize money will be evenly split among the previous 2 day's winners. If there are no winners for the entire tournament, the money will be carried over to 2018.
Example: Let's say the total purse for the "Leaderboard Lotto" B Reward is $54,000.00. That figure would be divided by 3 (three days) giving each day a purse of $18,000. Those who are in this Calcutta and remain on the leaderboard 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 $18,000. Two winners would get $9,000 each and so on.
Added Levels: D, E, F, I, J, & K - Can only win in one (1) category, Single Largest or Heaviest Stringer, not both.
