Last 2 $100K GTD Catapult Flights Today

$155 buyin, 5 starting flights, $100,000 guaranteed - the CATAPULT has its last two starting flights today, as the kickoff event for the 2016 Ante Up Poker Tour World Championships ... a total of 18 days worth of poker tournaments, satellites and cash games.

Catapult flights go today 11am and 4pm, just $155 for a $100k guaranteed prize pool that's already topped the guarantee and is going to make a serious run at $200,000 by the time registration closes on the 4pm flight.

Players begin with 12,000 chips and have 20-minute levels until registration ends each day after 6 levels. Once registration closes, levels move to 30 minutes long. Ten percent of the field cashes from each flight, with eight percent of each flight moving on to Sunday's Day 2.

This is a 1+1 event - as are all tournament series re-entry events at Thunder Valley - so each player has one entry and one re-entry per starting flight max.

There were 275 total entries for Thursday's Flight A - 22 advancing to Sunday's Day 2 and places 23-28 cashing for $300. Another 22 advanced out of Friday morning's 281-entry Day 1B, plus 22 more from Friday's 267-entry Day 1C.

That's 66 advancing and 823 total entries ... so far.

Check out the structure sheet posted above - it shows how many players move on from each flight based on total entries per flight.
