APAT World Championship Of Amateur Poker Begins Thursday

APAT World Championship Of Amateur Poker Begins Thursday 0001

The Dusk Till Dawn club in Nottingham is the venue for the latest edition of the APAT World Championship Of Amateur Poker, or WCOAP as it is often abbreviated to.

Running from Thursday 28 March through to Monday 1 April, the WCOAP features 10 events, each with low buy-ins yet amazingly good structures – something that APAT prides itself on.

Kicking off the Season 6’s edition of the WCOAP is the £100+£10 WCOAP World Amateur Team Championship, with the £50+£5 WCOAP Stud Championship taking place on the same day. These events begin at 17:00 and 18:00 respectively.

Other eagerly anticipated events include a no limit Hold’em Six Max tournament, a H.O.R.S.E event, an Omaha tournament and a heads-up championship. Each of the 10 events are sure to be fully sold out, including the £100+£10 WCOAP World Amateur Poker Championship – the flagship tournament of the festival.

In Season 5, the £100+£10 “Main Event” attracted a massive crowd of 405 players who created a prize pool of £42,930. The eventual champion was Dave “No Shoes” Garden who defeated Andrew Duffin heads-up to get his hands on the coveted WCOAP trophy and £12,092 in prize money. With interest in this year’s Main Event being at an all-time high, UK & Ireland PokerNews would urge you to join the APAT forum and investigate whether or not there will be any seat available for this event and indeed any of the others on the schedule.

The APAT community is one of the most vibrant and friendly in the world and it is that community spirit that makes the WCOAP so special. The atmosphere at the Dusk Till Dawn club will be even more electric than usual this weekend, and UK & Ireland PokerNews would like to wish everyone who is participating in the WCOAP the very best of luck.
