APAT Release Details of its Seventh Season 0001

The Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) has one of the most vibrant and welcoming communities in the entire world of poker. It also has some of the best value, low buy-in tournaments available anywhere in the world today.

Last week, APAT released full details of their seventh season’s events and we can tell you that APAT members are in for a real treat in Season 7.

Des Duffy of APAT wrote on the popular APAT forum:

The core tour will continue with visits to Coventry, Cardiff, Nottingham, Glasgow, Stoke, Newcastle and London. Dublin returns as a flyaway destination, alongside a debut appearance for APAT in Prague and a return to Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The opening leg of Season Seven; the APAT Masters, took place on the pitch of Wembley Stadium earlier this month.

APAT will visit the Czech Republic for the first time, as the opening event of the prestigious Prague Poker Festival, alongside marquee poker brand the World Poker Tour. Two APAT events will run there - the 16 country European Amateur Team Championship and the 200 runner European Amateur Poker Championship (individual).

In addition, APAT will roll out Cash Tour, a concept that introduces a hybrid cash and tournament format that positively engaged amateur players and seasoned pros when trialled in season six. Cash Tour will feature 7 events, each lasting five hours and taking place on a Friday night. Concept details can be found at

Details of the extended 15 event World Championship of Amateur Poker (WCOAP) are still subject to change, but the proposed schedule sees the return of the 10 events which ran at DTD in April 2013, and the addition of Shootout, 2 Game Mixed, Omaha 8 and Season Seven Champion of Champions events - the latter open only to APAT National Champions. The hugely popular APAT Awards will also be presented during the WCOAP.

APAT recently announced the acquisition of the Live Pub Poker League, and APAT’s Season Seven will also feature the LPPL’s Players Championship and the multi-event Festival of Pub Poker, which takes place over several days at Pontins in Southport. APAT members can avail of over 200 tournaments per week in pubs and clubs nationwide through the Live Pub Poker League, while further local and home initiatives are being developed for release during the season.

The winner of each of APAT’s National Amateur Championship events will win an added seat to the WCOAP main event – where the winner will receive the trip of a lifetime to Las Vegas during the next WSOP. They will be accompanied to Las Vegas by the winner of the Season Seven Champion of Champions event and the winner of the combined Live and Online Rankings.

There is to be a total of 32 Championship events to be held across the UK, Ireland, Europe and even the United States of America. Also, poker’s first-ever Cash Tour is set to run in the UK and a 14 event World Championship of Amateur Poker (WCOAP).
