The G Casino, Cardiff held the 2013 Welsh Amateur Poker Championship over the weekend of August 3rd. With a £75 buy in and a 15,000 starting stack running to a 45 minute clock the field, made up of APAT members from around the U.K. 114 runners battled it out to see who would become the new Welsh Champion – with a prize pool just over £8,500. Added to this were APAT Gold, Silver and Bronze medals to the first three players, as well as an added seat in the Main Event of the 2014 World Championships of Amateur Poker
The Welsh Championship was the Main Event of the weekend – but also part of the weekend were two side events – Leg 2 of the Cash Tour Championship, played on the Friday evening and Leg 2 of the Pot Limit Omaha Championship – played on Sunday afternoon. Both these events, along with the Main Event, held APAT Ranking Points for the top placed finishers – these points, won at events throughout Season 7 – both live and online – will result in an overall Ranking Points Leaderboard – the eventual winner of which will receive a once-in-a-lifetime package to Las Vegas with APAT in 2014.
