This month's Open League total prize pool is $33,770 (on the assumption that EVERYONE within the Top 2000 places was a 150+VPP player) and is broken down as follows:

1st $5,000
2nd $3,350
3rd $2,500
4th $1,650
5th $1,200
6th $1,000
7th $800
8th $500
9th $400
10th $350
11th $300
12th $250
13th $250
14th $200
15-20 $900 ($150 x 6 players)
21-79 $2,950 ($50 x 59 players)
80-500 $8,420 ($20 x 421 players)
501-2000 $3,750 ($2.50 x 1500 players)
TOTAL : $33,770

It says that next month's total prize pool for the Premier League (for 150+ VPP players) will be $30,000.

Would I be correct in assuming that the prize pool breakdown for next month's Premier League will be exactly the same as the prize pool breakdown shown above, bar the $3,750 being paid to players finishing in places 501-2000 this month?

Not sure about all the details but the Premier League will only have 1,500 players, so $1,250 ($2.50 X 500 players) can already be subtracted. And the bottom 500 are being relegated back to the open league so perhaps a payout of 0 for that, subtracting another $1,250.

Other than that, I would assume the payout structure would be the same as this month.
