List is a scam.

I don't see $10K each to  <Billy> and  <Wiebe> ...

Agree 100%.

Where's Chuck and his $50  2200 point effort?

Well, I don't know the Chuck Vess story, but if he earned it playing/bounty...he's on the list.

He won the 50 for a mystery bounty in the last event for scoring 2,200 points. This was the root cause for a Cheetah meltdown

If Vince paid me all the DK bets he lost to me, I'd be a millionaire (by Lemay math of course).

I thought Grunsberger's daughter was the root cause of the Cheetah meltdown.  Chuck Vess was just John/Eric rubbing salt on the wound.

Katherine = Post-DKO2 meltdown. Chuck = Post-DKO3 meltdown.

Ha!  I just now saw this thread.  This will be a fun source of depression, haha.  Despite a nonfunctioning stream I'll just say that I was VERY close to adding $1700 to my total this weekend, but alas, these sorts of things are just not meant to be for me I guess.  I did win a couple of additional bounties along the way a few years back that I can't even remember how much they were or if I even ended up collecting on them, but I guess it would be considered prize money "earned" if I could dig these up.  For example, Craig had offerred a bounty at one point for breaking 1.125 million back when that was thought to be unlikely.  When i got my 1.136 game that one was earned.  There were some other smaller ones too i think but it might be harder to remember them.  Hopefully no one is taking this too seriously.  This is pretty far down on the list of reasons why most of us are involved in the hobby but it's a fun read anyway.

Yeah Dean, if you can dig that info up I'll make the adjustments, I tried to cover as many online/live tournaments I remember, but couldn't remember all the bounties.
