The default tournament structure for APAT National Championship main events will see players starting with 20,000 chips, on a 45 minute clock, with the clock reducing to 30 minutes when Heads Up.

An EXAMPLE of the blind structure and breaks is below – these are usually ‘tweaked’ if we are hosting multiple Day 1 entries (which usually plays to 9 levels only) and to give a break immediately once the Final Table is formed. During Season 12 APAT will also trial a ‘single Ante’ (either BB or Button) at selected events which will be advised in advance :-
