Pardon me for making what might seem to be a derailment of this series, but I am kind of flabbergasted that you guys still would be playing this. It's been the same crap structure/rake for the last 2, maybe 3 years. (I.E.) Not catering to the player, and as many have said last year, and this year already, it's a freckin' shove fest even before you get ITM. I understand the prizepools can get good in these but that doesn't account for the exponential increase in luck factor because of the poor structure, when these are meant to cater to a small stakes player.
For these low-stakes players as mentioned, the only two options for the best value for their $$$ is either Venetian or Wynn. All you need to do is look at the structure of Wynn compared to the Rio, and it's only $105 with less rake, and I'm sure Wynn will be giving food comps of some sort unlike Rio.
