Can anyone check my math to see if I did this correctly? Thanks 3 players: Player 1 - 15,000,000 chips Player 2 - 10,000,000 chips Player 3 - 5,000,000 chips 1st place \$ = \$300,000 2nd place \$ = \$150,000 3rd place \$ = \$100,000 By chip chop, I figured... Player 1 gets \$275,000 Player 2 gets \$183,333 Player 3 gets \$91,667 By ICM chop, I figured... Player 1 gets \$217,500 Player 2 gets \$186,667 Player 3 gets \$145,833 Does this look right? Thanks ----xGREGORx

Errr in your chip chop player 3 is getting less than the 100,000 he is guaranted ... seems dubious, doesn't it ? You should give 100,000 to everyone as a start and then do whatever calculation you like for the rest of the prize pool I think.
