$1 from pro's, per gig goes to qualifiers payouts.
An average of $20-30 a gig.
I think that much could be covered in side bets.
Also, we have a bunch of fellers who play pro but could easily and often do play am or adv in other gigs. That adds up to a lot more payout per gig, that wouldn't be there if these fellers didn't step up. By rewarding them it may give a bit of incentive.
FWIW, last place qualifier payouts have started at around $10-20.
Should we stop paying out qualifiers?
I received $25 last year for being in a three way tie for first and losing in the playoff, splitting the 2nd and 3rd place cash with Shane.... I know last year everyone must have got the same exact amount, I say heck with auto qualifiers, If you want overall payout talk to Shane and I and get in our side bet for the series Champion. My vote is that money goes into skins. Every last dime of it
