John Murray Wins APAT UK Amateur Title
Over in London the UK Amateur Poker Championship took place at the Vic , which was the latest leg on the APAT tour. The eventual winner was John Murray of Portsmouth who pocketed £3,500, a Gold Medal and a seat in the GUKPT Main Event of his choice, courtesy of Betfair Poker. Murray is no stranger to success, as he was part of the Ireland Team that took down the 2008 APAT European Team Event.

GUKPT Brighton Champion Bernard Litman won the £250 Pot Limit Hold’em pro league event.

The next leg of the tour takes place in Austria from May 15. If you want to buy-in direct or win your seat to this or any APAT event, download Betfair Poker today, also good for a $1,500 sign up bonus.
