It took under an hour for the money to be reached and the 191 who made it were then guaranteed at least a min-cash worth $1,130.
Only 85 of those managed to book a ticket onto Day 2 and have all guaranteed themselves at least a $1,787 paystub. All will have their sights set on the $99,228 first-place money, along with all the juicy bounties en route to a WCOOP title.
