We look forward to hosting all those playing over the weekend, with a full schedule of side events, and we will be providing a full player tracking and ongoing team score updating service throughout the Main Event, and a live update/blog with pictures via the APAT Website/Forum.

The table draw/seating plan will be available via the APAT Forum around one week prior.

All players must be a member of DTD, and hold an active Party Poker Live online poker account, both of which are free – photo ID in the form of a passport or driving licence is needed to confirm membership at DTD.  If you already have an active membership of DTD then you need to bring your membership card to use at the reception desk to gain entry each day.  If not a member of DTD, or you are unsure as to having an ‘active membership’, then you should ensure you bring either your passport or your driving licence as failure to turn up with either will mean you will not be allowed to enter the venue.

Free parking is available at DTD.

DTD will be open as follows:

Fri 31st – from 7pm
Sat 1st – from 12 noon
Sun 2nd – from 12 noon
