The Amateur Poker Association & Tour held its first event in the United States with the APAT North American Amateur Championship, which was held at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino, Las Vegas on 19th & 20th November 2011. Early play was brisk with chip leader Don Logan accounted for several opponents in the first three levels, before he was joined by Jeldon Fernandes at the head of affairs. Indeed throughout the day, with only the exceptions of Robert McMillan (Arizona) and Michael Murphy (Oregon) play was largely dominated by the fifty one APAT members who travelled from the United Kingdom and Ireland to the tournament. In the mid-levels, former APAT World Championship of Amateur Poker HORSE Champion Andrew Tracey became chip leader, before he lost some ground late on doubling up Colin Wilson and Dawn Dineen, putting them both in contention. Meanwhile Jack Prime and Glenn Laming clashed on several occasions, Prime eventually being in the ascendancy as Laming exited near the end of day one’s play. Scotsman Neil Dawson moved through the gears and doubled up near the end through Jeldon Fernandes to end a fast and furious day's play as the chip leader.
