What are flights and Satellites in Tournaments?

In poker, select tournaments are created with Big payouts or GTDs. Such tournaments have ‘Flights’ in the form of several Day 1 sections that serve as qualifying rounds which filter and subsequently funnel through ‘survivors’ into an effectively shortlisted Day 2 or, commonly, Final Day, of the Main Event (ME) and this will be played to a finish.

In poker, a satellite (Satty) tournament is a qualifying event. Winners of these satellites often win the buy-in fee or Tickets to a bigger, more marquee tournament. Technically, any tournament that awards tickets to a large tournament would be a satellite.

Sattys and Flights are very cost-effective options as they offer chances to enter bigger prize pool tournaments..
