Currently Taylor Road Productions has already contracted the Galveston World Classic for 11 hours of televised programming to be broadcasted on ESPN Star throughout Asia, which boasts 40 million households in almost 60 countries. The U.S. distribution will be announced by Taylor Road Productions shortly. Please visit The Galveston World Classic web site for more details.
AND NOW...................July20, 2009
Taylor Road Productions, promoters of the Galveston World Classic, will be announcing a deal for U.S. distribution of televised programming for the event. The event will be held at Moody Gardens in Galveston, TX September 11-20, 2009 and features over $1,000,000 in prize money.
"I would rather not deal with such questions, because it's like shearing a piglet—a lot of squealing and little wool."
My apoligies if this has already been answered in some RSS announcements, or chat session or something, but when did this event go from a $200,000 event (As it was originally promoted) to $1,000,000?
I had a look at the Payouts page and it appears that, assuming they had full fields for all the headline events the total payout is about $400,000. (Still a very nice payday BTW.)
The other thing I don't see on this page is any indication what happens if there are less than full fields. Does the added money stay the same, so the total prizes go down, or are the added funds increased to guarantee the same prize payouts that are in the chart?
I won't bother asking how the added funds are being guaranteed, because if Jose Parica (Assuming it is a real post) doesn't rate a public answer to that question I'm sure a humble hack like me won't merit a better response.
