The APAT Online National League - Season 3
« on: December 28, 2008, 02:40:43 AM »


Welcome to the APAT Online National League, in association with Blue Square

The Online National League will feature 30 poker clubs, made up of APAT members located across the United Kingdom and Ireland, who will compete in three divisions online, for the right to play in the National League final at Blue Square in November.

APAT members will be able to join the poker club nearest their current residence or their home town poker club; at any point in the season, but they will not be able to change again prior to the season ending.

The league will run for twenty rounds, starting on February 1st.  Competing clubs are as follows:-

Northern Division

Aberdeen Poker Club
Belfast Poker Club
Carlisle Poker Club
Dublin Poker Club
Dundee Poker Club
Edinburgh Poker Club
Glasgow Poker Club
Newcastle Poker Club
Stockton-on-Tees Poker Club
Sunderland Poker Club

Central Division

Birmingham Poker Club
Blackpool Poker Club
Bolton Poker Club
Leeds Poker Club
Liverpool Poker Club
Manchester Poker Club
Nottingham Poker Club
Sheffield Poker Club
Stoke Poker Club
Walsall Poker Club

Southern Division

Brighton Poker Club
Bristol Poker Club
Cardiff Poker Club
North London Poker Club
South London Poker Club
Luton Poker Club
Plymouth Poker Club
Southampton Poker Club
Swansea Poker Club
Thanet Poker Club

FORMAT

Each division will hold one multi table tournament for every round of the National League, with the final ten players scoring between 1 and 10 points towards their club's total in that round.  While there will be no limit on the number of players who can compete for each club, each club will be limited to a maximum of 4 scoring players in each round.

Club scores will be totalled at the end of each round, and the club in the highest scoring position will receive 3 National League points, with second receiving 2 National League points and third receiving 1 National League point.

There will be a total of twenty rounds in the National League, with the top three clubs in each division; and the highest scoring non qualifying club, going forward to compete in the online National League final on November 15th. 

APAT National League rounds will be held every fortnight, on a Sunday evening, starting on February 1st.  The buy in for each round will be $10 + $1.

The four highest scoring players of each qualifying club will be eligible to play in the National League final.

REWARDS

The poker club which wins the National League will receive four entries to a Grosvenor UK Poker Tour main event, to be awarded to the four members of who played in the National League final. 

Should any of these four players go on to cash in their chosen GUKPT main event, then 20% of their GUKPT prize money will be retained as a secondary prize for their poker club team mates, and paid out in line with individual National League points scored during the Season Three campaign.  For example, players who did not score any league points will not be eligible for a share of GUKPT prize money.  Similarly, players who won a GUKPT seat as part of the National League winning team will not be eligible for a share of any secondary prize money, should they not cash with their own GUKPT entry.

The four members of the top three teams in the Online National League will receive APAT National Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to commemorate their achievement.
