Further Season 13 stops are expected to be confirmed by 30 Jun 19.
The casino is open 24/7. Players need to register for free at the Casino reception with photo ID and receive a membership card, which must be used for all visits (scan the card and enter) and is required for all cash transactions. All formats for cash games are offered and run in CZK (1€=25CZK), limits from CZK 25/55 up raked at 5% capped (€15). Dress code is ‘casual’, no sports clothing.

The top three teams in the Team Championship, along with the top three individuals in the Main Event, will each receive the coveted National Championship Gold, Silver and Bronze medals.
On The Day
Players can buy-in at the venue for available seats on a first-come-first-served basis from 2 hours before each tournament, and players will be given 2 copies of their receipt – 1 is for the dealer and the 2nd to be visible at the player seating position at all times (including breaks). As soon as a player takes their seat they receive their chip stack from the dealer on handing over their receipt. Any player who fails to take their seat by the end of late registration will have their chip stack reduced by the relevant blinds every 20 mins / orbit.
Reserve A Seat In Advance
Players can guarantee their seat for the Main Event by reserving in advance via the APAT Eventbrite facility, which will close when all allocated seats are reserved, or at 11pm on the evening prior to the event start day.
A live update/blog will be provided throughout the Team Championship and Main Event.
