A big thanks to Des, Tighty and the APAT team for another great weekend, and a big thanks to the staff at the casino for looking after us so well over the course of the tourney. Bolton must be one of the best venue"s on the tour, great cardroom, excellent dealers and plenty of staff waiting tables.
The only downside for me was the heat on the first day, and some luckbox knocking me out on the final table
bubble  ;D. Well done to everyone on the final table and I look forward to returning next year.

Thanks to everyone who came to Bolton over the weekend.  I thought the tournament was played in a very competitive, but fantastic spirit - which is what APAT is all about.  Congratulations to John for winning the title and to Brian and Ian on their medal wins and the other finalists and prize winners.  We look forward to hosting you all again either in Luton, Manchester or during Season Four.

Richard"s tournament report is now available via the main website.  The photos will be online very shortly.

Regards,

Des.

Yet another hugely enjoyable APAT event, with tough but friendly competition. Thanks to Des, Tighty, Lee and any behind-the-scenes APAT staff for such a well-run poker weekend. It"s always a long way to travel to most of these events from the environs of Bath, but it"s such a great atmosphere among the players and always such challenging poker that it"s worth every congested motorway or every train delay to be part of it. At the DTD event my starting table was so civilised with everyone wanting some serious poker, so it was very rewarding to experience the same attitude at my table at Bolton (plus the "interesting" style of Duke!!). The dealers and casino staff were excellent, buffet very tasty, and despite not making it to day 2, I enjoyed every moment (excluding perhaps my knockout in the SB by Daniel in the BB for which I am planning revenge at Luton  ;D

Just like to say a HUGE thankyou for such a wonderful run tourney, the buffet was also of equal excellence. I really loved the table I was on (Would have preferred to have made it the final table) and well Duke, it was a pleasure and honour playing opposite of you, I think they mean by "Unusual" they mean "original" often imitated never equalled, was great fun as well meeting Dan who between us managed to keep our drinks table free from spillage caused by passers-by.

Regards

Firstly big congrats to John, Brian and Ian - VWP guys and GL to John in the TOC.

Would quickly like to thank all those that offered me (Andrew Duncan) their support during the two days, both here on the forum and in the card room. I had a blast, though you"d never tell from the look on my face most of the time!

Have to say that Andrew Macleod "The Russian" was a tough opponent for me and suffering him both one to my left then one to my right on successive day 2 tables was torture. His fourth place was more than deserved.

Also enjoyed sitting next to Foggy on day one - especially finding out what a small world we live in!

Final mention to top bloke Tony T (cincycrappykid), who indirectly made my life a misery by calling a 3 bet shove (of 16K no less not long after day 1 dinner) from my missus with AQ v her KK and spiking the A. He told me later he thought she thought he was at it so he called. That"s pretty deep from Tony. She hasn"t shut up about it since.....thanks mate!

See you all in Luton
