Each Day 1 is run as a Daily Freezeout where players may have 1 entry per Day 1, with late entry until end L8.  Any subsequent Day 1 entry auto forfeits any previous Day 2 stack.

Day 2 blinds start at the level after which the earliest Day 1 completed, or with an average 33 BB stack if earlier, with stacks entered into play for Day 2 ‘in the money’ and paid out on Day 2 in Man235.  The prize fund will be confirmed prior to the start of Day 2.  APAT Gold, Silver and Bronze Championship Medals are awarded to the top 3 players.  Deals are not facilitated.

Entry to the casino is free, and Photo ID is required.  Opening hours are 12:00 noon to 6am with a smart casual (no jacket required) dress code, and jeans and trainers are OK as long as they’re not scruffy.

Subsidised NCP parking is available right next door to the venue (1 Watson St, Manchester M3 4EE) – contact Man235 for details – though it can be arranged whilst in the venue after parking.  You will need to download the app ‘NCP Park Pass’ – on a previous visit, I parked in the car park and proceeded to Man235, and whilst playing poker downloaded the NCP Park Pass, entered personal details (including registering a card) and the casino ‘code’ for the discount and then simply drove out when leaving – payment was taken automatically (by number plate recognition cameras – within the app make sure you tick ‘auto pay’) – as was the discount applied – I parked in ‘Great Northern Car Park – Warehouse 2’ and paid £6.95 (£18 discount on £24.95 total) .
