    Percentage is just that, if there is 1,000$ paying 40,30,20,10, and there are 5 100s, the split the 40%, 99 second score alone takes the 30%, 7 98s split the 20%, and 11 97s split the 10%.

    High gun same purse, 5 100s, take everything, split the grand among them.

    If there is 1 100, he takes the 40%, and 4 98s they take the remaining pot and split.

    Best payouts with the most people playing money at The Grand was the Rose Point system. In their infinite wisdom, The ATA quit using this system. It was difficult to calculate with no computors, but it was done. There were 9 scores paid, high score was worth 9 points, next score was worth 8 points down to the lowest score being worth 1 point. The number of shooters breaking each score was multiplied by the point value of the score and all point values totaled. The value of the purse was then divided by the total points to arrive at the value for each point. $400,000 purse, 5,000 points, point value is $80., 5 100's each paid $720, 2 99's, each paid $640, 10 92's each $80. The purse was divided 90% to each yardage group and 10$ all yardages. You competed for your yardage only. I won over $350 for a 95 from 23 and 91 for a 92 from the 27. This purse was $25. Most people played it.

    High gun = shooters get paid

    Percentage = scores get paid
