If you weren't already hyped for King of Fighters 14 at EVO 2017, SNK and Atlus just raised the stakes. Both companies have come together to add a whopping $14,000 pot bonus to the tournament this weekend.

According to EVO's official website, the prize pot is determined by taking $10 from each entrant's registration fee. With 374 registered players in King of Fighters 14 (according to Smashgg), this means the pot sat at $3,740 before the bonus.

Whomever takes home the gold at EVO 2017 is going to be paid considerably more now that roughly $17,740 is on the line. So, how will that money be divided up among the top placers?

EVO rules state that the prize pot is distributed 60/20/10/4/2/2/1/1 between the top 8 competitors. Meaning, if you win first place you receive 60% of the total prize money, second place gets 20%, and so on.
