    It is difficult to determine the real compensation the top players receive since appearance fees are not disclosed. Sometimes as well there is a payment from other than the tournament organizers. 

    These appear to be comparable in that there is likely no appearance fee issue.

    Women 106,000:  2012 March 1 to 2012 March 13

    Open 90,000:  2012 March 19 to 2012 April 01

    The prize fund is 100 000 EUR. According to Bulgarian law all prizes are taxable (10%).

    This along with the 33,500 pounds at Gibraltar just for women should draw more women into chess.  http://www.gibraltarchesscongress.com/prizes.htm
