Payout Perspective:

Freire, Kongo and Koscheck were the big money earners with each making at least $75,000.  Freire earned $80,000 with his win bonus.  Notably, no one else made over $20,000.  One has to think that Fedor and Mitrione would have also made over $75,000 with Fedor likely making the most for the night.  One has to think that Koscheck’s pay might not be commensurate with his skill at this stage in his career.

Got something to say?
