So your saying that by adding TO players (who are not in the cash) will increase the number of full price players cashing?
If I have a pool of 72 players, 60 full price and 12 TO, and I am paying out the top 40%, are you saying then 29 (72*40%) players will be paid vs. 24 (60*40%)?
And if that's the case, although more full price players will be paid, they will be marginally paid less than if there were no TO players.
