Though they might have fallen short of the ambitious €250,000 guarantee by 990 players, no one can accuse the Dusk Till Dawn Grand Prix IV of being a flop.
In total, 4,010 players competed and re-entered in the event with ten online and ten live Day 1 flights to create a prize pool of more than €200,000, which was not bad for a €60 buy-in.In the end, 399 players made the money and the official Day 2 at the Dusk Till Dawn club on Saturday. The planned first prize was €46,369 but an eight-way deal at the final table ensured everyone walked away with five figures for their €60 investment.The prize payouts and approximate final table chip counts were as follows:1. Nicholas Humphries (1.1m) €30,0002. Tommy Bingham (1.9m) €27,9003. Romans Mihailovs (560k) €11,5004. Marios Arkadiou (470k) €11,5005. Mohammed Ashfaq (397k) €11,5006. Ian Turner (450k) €10,7007. Mark Wates (285k) €10,7008. Michael Haney (161k) €10,700Haney and Turner were the real winners, though, as both had won the Golden Chip promotion by qualifying via a special satellite and making the final table.
