Nearly 50 Players in the Turbo Flight on First Break

In a flash we are done with the first four levels of play in the turbo flight, and players are taking their first break of the day. When they return, they will play four more levels, then take another break. After that, registration will be closed for the day.

Right now, we have 43 players registered, so it looks like we are looking at a similar number to yesterday (80 players).

Time To Start Up Another Turbo Flight

We are ready to get the second flight of the day going, and just like yesterday, it will be a Turbo flight with 15 and 20 minute levels. Yesterday's turbo flight actually finished before the morning flight, and it only saw four players advance to the Day 2 finals.

Registration for this flight will be open until 7:30 PM tonight. Good luck all!

By the Numbers: Sunday Morning Flight

The first flight of the day drew exactly 200 players, meaning that 10 more Day 2 tickets will be punched from that flight. The final 25 players will finish in the money, and you can see a breakdown of those payouts below.

Don't forget that the Turbo flight kicks off at the top of the hour. Don't miss it!

1-10. Advance to Day 2
11-17. $1,200
18-25. $900

Turbo Flight Starting in An Hour

Registration is closing now for the opening flight of the day, but the action isn't stopping, as we have another flight starting up at 5 PM today. This session has a turbo structure with 15 and 20 minute levels, and registration will be closing at 7:30 PM tonight.

Remember that the top 12.5% of players will be cashing today, but only the final 5% will be bagging up and moving on to the finals a week from today. Good luck all!
