    Does anyone know what the prize money for winning the MS in the WC ? or the breakdown of the prize money, .i.e. 2nd, 3rd ? and WS, MD, WD, etc, etc.

    Cheers.

    ^ You are having a laugh..... no prize money for winning the WC ?! no prize money on offer ? something is wrong there. I think I need some more opinions..... or facts. I can't beleive there's no prize money for the WC. That's just unbelievable. The Olympics I can understand but not the WC.

    S4MadMan and cheongsa are correct. There's never been any prize money in the WCs since its inception in 1977.

    ^ Well, at least I know now.

    Cheers guys (and girls).

    I guess they play more for the title then the money in the WC.
