ON THE DAY

Players can buy-in at the venue for available seats on a first-come-first-served basis from 1 hour prior to each event.

Players who have registered for an event before the end of the late entry period, but are placed on the Alternates list, will be offered a seat as it becomes available, but no player will be given at seat after the Late Entry/Alternates period ends.

EVENT REGISTRATION


You are advised to turn up well in advance to complete event registration, including allowing time to join as a member if needed.  

Event registration will open in the venue 1 hour prior to both the Main Event (so at 13:30 on Sat) and the APAT Side Events for those NOT bought-in in full in advance (via the APAT/Grosvenor Online Holding Tank or with APAT/Venue) and is on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.

Players may leave the venue after registering for an event but we encourage you to be back and seated by 5 minutes prior to the event advertised start time.  However, it is not obligatory to be in your seat at the start of the events and if not chips will be put into play, and remain in play, and you will be blinded out.

ALL players bought-in in advance (either via the APAT/Grosvenor Online Holding Tank, direct entry with APAT (eg Online Satellite token or prizewinner/added value) or direct with the venue, will have their chips put into play at the start of the event and, if not seated, will be blinded out from the start - you DO NOT need to register in the venue prior to the event start - APAT will provide your name to the venue and register you into the event - so just turn up and take your seat (even if late arriving).

Any player who registers and buys in at the venue on the day will also have chips put into play at the start even if they are not seated.

If you register online via the holding tank, and subsequently do not de-register online before the holding tank closes, and subsequently you are unable to use your seat, then you need to use the APAT Seat Exchange facility HERE to off-load your seat.

Live Updates

A live report update/blog will be provided throughout Saturday and Sunday.

A live stream will be provided on the Main Event.

Terms and Conditions

Please note the event is subject to the terms & conditions of the Amateur Poker Association & Tour.

All events are subject to APAT/Venue discretion on the day, and structures/levels may be altered and timings changed if viewed in the best interests of the event.

Cancellations

Once a seat has been purchased, and if plans change, then players need to utilise the APAT Seat Exchange within the APAT Forum HERE to trade their seat at the face value.  Seat Exchange Guidelines HERE apply.

Finally As a member of the Amateur Poker Association and Tour, we would like you to be aware of your expected role in our collective responsibility to ensure that the weekend is memorable and enjoyable for not only every participant - but for everyone involved within the venue.  We would appreciate you doing your bit to ensure that everyone comes away having had the best possible poker experience with APAT.

The best of luck to everyone playing over the weekend of events.

Hi Tom, I'm assuming things are still on for tomorrow? Weather up here is still pretty dismal.
