In addition to the prize money generated through entry fees to each tournament players will also be able to win seats to a number of UKIPT events, the PokerStars Sunday Million and PokerStars Sunday kickoff seats. There will also be APAT National Ranking Points available to the leading individual performers, many of whom will be challenging for places in the English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish International squads for the fifth annual World Championship of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) that is due to take place at the fantastic Dusk Till Dawn poker club later this year.
