The default tournament structure for APAT National Championship main events will see players starting with 40,000 chips, on a 40 minute clock, with the clock reducing to 20 minutes when Heads Up, and a single Ante in play equivalent to 1 x BB with 7 or more players at the table, and 1 x SB when 6 players or less.

An EXAMPLE of the blind structure and breaks is below – these are usually ‘tweaked’ if we are hosting multiple Day 1 entries (which usually plays to 9 levels only) and to give a break immediately once the Final Table is formed.
