How are the game payout amounts calculated?

A player's game payout is based on the payout percentage that the player will receive in their current position (based on chip count) if the tournament was to end immediately. The player will get this percentage of the remaining prize pool if this payout structure is chosen. For example, let's say that the following payout structure is in place: If there are four players remaining, then the 3rd place player would receive [15/(40+25+15+11) ] = (15/91) = 16.48% of the remaining prize pool.
