Explanation of the format!

Had a few people say they don't understand the format. So we want to use event #1 at Table Rock for and example. While these numbers aren't as high as they could or should be it's an easy way to understand the format by seeing the results.


Wednesday we had 7 boats show up. Top 20% advanced to day #2 on Sunday otherwise known as Championship Sunday. The weights reset for that day because other flights/day 1s are also sending 20% to Sunday. So on Wednesday 2 teams advanced. With 3 teams getting paid out. We pay 3 spots until 30 places then at 31 we go to 4, etc. You can see the payout table we follow on fishwft.com under the payout table.

Sunday the 10 teams that advanced(2,2,3 and 3) from the previous day 1s/flights fished for the remaining 80% of the prizepool that wasn't already awarded on day 1s. 20,000 of which was guaranteed for Table Rock because we had 38 total entries over the 4 flights we paid out 4 spots on Championship Sunday.


Here's a visual of how the above read about Table Rock works as well

Now let's use a scenario that should happen if angler's actually want to fish a very rewarding tournament not that winning 20k isn't rewarding enough.

Let's use Tournament Numbers from this past weekend on Grand Lake but broken up into days. One event had 260 boats Sunday. Another had 107 paid entries on Saturday. So let's say those numbers showed up here next week for World Fishing Tour.
