Team Applications - 2019 UK Team Championship
« on: October 02, 2018, 08:50:01 AM »
My favourite time of year is approaching, so it's time to call for team entries for the UK Team Championship, this Season to be played at the Grosvenor Casino, Blackpool over the weekend of Friday 25th January 2019 as follows:

Jan 26th, Sat 14:30 Main Event: UK Team Championship (NLHE) (Button Ante) Freezeout Day 1 £75+£12 - 15k/45 mins (max 280 players) (11 levels - estimate end 00:15)

Jan 27th, Sun 12:00 Main Event: UK Team Championship (NLHE) Day 2 (estimated end 23:00)

The Main Event will be supported by a series of Side Events which are open to any poker player, whether playing in the UK Team Championship or not.

Interested Poker clubs, groups, forums, societies, leagues and communities etc need to register their interest in entering a team by the closing date Saturday 20th October 2018, by sending a PM on APAT website to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE and providing the following details:

Team Name

Team Captain poc - name, email address/mobile number/Facebook contact

Links to group/team associated Website/Facebook/Twitter/Forum etc

Successful teams will be confirmed on Sunday 21st October.


Teams with 8 players each will compete for both a team and an individual prize pool in the UK Team Championship, which will be run as an MTT with a buyin of £75+£12 per player.

Entry is therefore £87 per player and this will be required to be paid via an Online Holding Tank by INDIVIDUALS - co-ordinated between myself and all Team Captains - each team member will therefore need to have a Grosvenor Poker online account to enable them to register online to play in the UK Team Championship (can download Grosvenor software via HERE).

The total prizepool of £75 per player will be paid out on a 50/50 basis to the top 3 teams and the top 18 (tbc) individual players from the MTT.

Points will be scored based on individual player finishing positions, and will start to be earned on Day 2 by all remaining players on a 'reverse position' scoring position - eg; 100 wins 1 point, 1st wins 100 points.

Teams are to wear their own matching colour team shirts for both days of the event - if desired, EMBROIDERED POLO SHIRTS OR T-SHIRTS are available from APAT at a subsidised cost of £15 per shirt (reduced from £18).  Shirts include the APAT logo and UK Team Championship event details and team name embroidered onto the shirt breast, and other wording or team logo embroidery is also possible for an additional cost depending on requirements).

To order send a PM via APAT Website to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.

This event has seen huge demand in previous years, and we are expecting similar interest this year.  The event has also on occasion previously suffered from "team last minute dropouts", and therefore, as we did previously, we will again maintain a reserve list and require all individual team members to pay the entry fee of £87 via Grosvenor Poker in advance by 9pm on Sunday 6th January 2019.  Any team failing to meet the buyin (all 8 members) deadline will have their team entry offered to teams on the reserve list.

Any team that pays the full buyins (all 8 members) and has a last minute need to drop out will have their entry offered to the next team on the reserve list and whichever team takes up this option will have their buyins used to reimburse the team that had to drop out.

The event structure can be found HERE.

APAT Player Of The Year Leaderboard Ranking Points will be awarded for this event, and it is an OPEN event - ie open to ANY poker player.

If you have any questions about the event, feel free to post on this thread or contact me personally by PM on APAT Website via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.

There won't be any online qualifiers this year, so teams need to get their applications in asap.
