Firstly, we don't take it lightly when we say 'apologies' to those who have not made the cut... this year we've had the usual high number of team applications and it has been the hardest decisions to have to leave teams out - so to those who have not made it this year, please understand we are restricted to a maximum number and we hope you will continue to apply in future years.

The UK Team Championship will have a full schedule of events over the weekend as follows:

Feb 2, Fri 18:00 PLO £33+£7
Feb 2, Fri 20:00 NLHE £33+£7

Feb 3, Sat 14:30 Main Event: UK Team Championship (NLHE) Day 1 £75+£7
Feb 3, Sat 20:00 NLHE £33+£7

Feb 4, Sun 12:00 Main Event: UK Team Championship (NLHE) Day 2
Feb 4, Sun 13:00 Mix Max £33+£7
Feb 4, Sun 16:00 PLO8 £33+£7

ALL Side Events are open to any poker player, whether playing in the UK Team Championship or not.

The following teams will compete in the UK Team Championship in Grosvenor Casino, Blackpool over 2 days Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th February 2018:

Angies Room
Blonde Poker
Blue Blood
Bluff Europe All-Stars
Deep Stack Poker Tour
Degens Poker Tour
Essex Home Group
Frome Poker Group
Geordie Poker
GNF alumni
Hetton Mob
Kracked Kings
London Poker Meetup
Punters Lounge
Quad Jokers
Scot Squad
Sutton Poker
Team Grosvenor
Team Grosvenor Blackpool
Team Pokermasters UK
The Kav Cocktails
The Pokeriety
Voyage In Poker
Wugga Chunterers

We draw your attention to the following:

The tournament will be run as an MTT with teams of 8 players each competing for both a team and an individual prize pool, paid out on a 50/50 basis to the top 3 teams and the top placed Individuals.

The buyin is £75+£7 per player and is to be paid in advance via a Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank by each individual.
Payment by individuals will be co-ordinated via myself and each Team Captain - so Team Captains, please take a keen interest in ensuring that each of your members have a Grosvenor Poker account (download via and that you know their table/screen nickname so you (we) can identify them in the Online Holding Tank.  The Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank will be available late October and Team Captains will all be advised when it is live in the lobby - and also advised of the password for their team members.

The top X players in the MTT will score points for their team. Eg, 1st = 120 pts down to 120th = 1 pt.

Teams are to wear their own matching colour team shirts for both days of the event - if desired, EMBROIDERED POLO SHIRTS OR T-SHIRTS are available from APAT at a subsidised cost of £15 per shirt (reduced from £18) and in addition to the APAT logo and UK Team Championship event wording embroidered onto the shirt breast, can be branded with the Team Name plus player name or nickname (other wording or team logo embroidery is also possible but will cost more depending on requirements) - to order send a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.  Shirts ordered via APAT will be available from the Friday night in the casino.

On the day, teams will be required to have a team photo taken PRIOR to the event starting - therefore please arrive by 1:30pm latest to allow the timely completion of this and not hold up the event starting because you"re too late!

The event has on occasion previously suffered from "team last minute dropouts", and therefore, as we did previously, we will again maintain a team reserve list.  All individual team members need to pay the entry fee of £82 via Grosvenor Poker in advance by 9pm on Friday 5th January 2018.  Any team failing to meet the buyin deadline for all 8 members will have their entry offered to teams on the reserve list.  Any team that pays the full buyins and has a last minute need to drop out will have their entry offered to the next team on the reserve list and whichever team takes up this option will have their buyins used to reimburse the team (via APAT) that had to drop out.

Team Captains need to inform APAT of their team members" names by by Friday 5th Jan 2018, either by sending a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.  A full list of all team  members will be published to the APAT Forum thereafter, along with the table/seat draw.

The event structure can be found HERE - although 12 levels will be played on Day 1, and break times may vary.

APAT Player Of The Year Leaderboard Ranking Points will be awarded for this event.

If you have any questions about the event, feel free to post on this thread or don"t hesitate to contact me personally by PM via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.

24 from the 35 teams were there last year, so the list can't be that big to only have to change 11?

And some of the teams from last year now have 2 entries it would appear?
