My best effort thus far:

Whoah there, it's race to 1M, not 1.1!

Put me down for 605,000 ending on 14-5. :)

A few additional stats:
- Sessions played: 4 (1 for each of the 4 days so far)
- Session duration: 1h 47m (shortest) 2h 34m (longest) (all about the same)
- Total coins dropped: 19 (averaging 4.75 per day)

Best scores:
496,600 (12-4)
605,000 (14-5)

Biggest issues:
- Rust. Day 1 and 2 were just dumpster fires of bad timing, execution, positioning, etc. After last night and tonight though (when I got those two scores) I feel that I'm now back into the DK zone.
- Springs. My recognition is off and I'm playing them timid. I was 10K+ under pace by the time these games ended, and the springs is actually the biggest leak. I'm losing a lot of points on springs. The last death on the 496K game was a spring, and the first death on the 605K game was a spring (L4). I did clear 40 boards on my last man (8-3 to 14-4, ending on 14-5) on the 605K game though, so that bodes well.

This is not a line in the sand, but I do not personally require TG submissions for the bounty I offered; $100 goes to the million that occurs 3rd, OR to anyone who gets a mill. lit and does not wish to submit to TG.  However, the score must be submitted here at DKF, following the guidelines and what not. I actually alluded to this in my OP (or so I thought; retroactively edited)...

EDIT, EDIT:  It was recently brought to my attention that the DKF HSL does not require a name, I do (totally not unrealistic), love it

I have a feeling that, while this is off to a slow-ish start (no millions after just about 5 days now), my sense is that the first two will come in relatively close to one another.

IMO, nobody hitting it yet is actually better. Every day that goes by where it doesn't happen just ratchets up the tension that much more.  <blinky>

Andrew Barrow has won 1st prize, but don't forget the Event is still well underway! Over half of the money in the prize pool is still up for grabs, so keep playing!

So correct me if I'm wrong here, but since the prize pool is $775, it nobody else does this, Barra gets the whole pot?

That's awesome if so, because it keeps things exciting for him as well. He's freerolling for it now, and has to hex everybody else from here.  ;D

Bring on that shoutbox, I'm putting it out there right now. The shoutbox cannot touch me.  Kappa

The only way Barra could win the whole $775 pot is if everyone who has contributed agrees that's how the payout would happen. Right now, I think everyone is settled on the current prize structure format, meaning Barra gets "only" $350.
