On The Day

Players can buy-in at the venue for available seats on a first-come-first 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.

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

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.

Live Updates

A live report update/blog on the Championship Event will be provided throughout Saturday and Sunday.

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.

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.
