Table Of Contents
It is almost time for the most popular series that the Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) runs: the World Championship Of Amateur Poker (WCOAP). The 2022 edition of the WCOAP takes place online at partypoker before heading to the home of British poker, Dusk Till Dawn for a live festival.
In keeping with the spirit of APAT, all the online WCOAP events are played as freezeouts, so make sure you put that first bullet to good use because it's the only one you will get! Everything kicks off on June 19 with the first two of a scheduled 12 online events. Both the 8-Max KO and the PLO8 events come with $55 buy-ins and shuffle up and deal at 8:05 p.m. BST. The 8-Max KO has a cool $40,000 guaranteed prize pool, while the Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo players will fight it out for a share of at least $7,500.
Other tournaments include 6-Max No-Limit Hold'em, Fixed Limit Hold'em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Mix-Max, turbos, and turbo PKOs. Each costs $55 and sports a fantastic blind structure that allows for plenty of play.
The crown jewel of the online APAT WCOAP is the two-day Championship event on June 26, which comes with a$75,000 guaranteed prize pool for a $109 investment. Every entrant sits down with 100,000 chips and plays to a 10-minute clock where the blinds start at 500/1,000/130a.
Day 1 ends after the completion of the 26th level. Play then resumes with a 15-minute clock at 8:05 p.m. BST on June 27.
Satellites from a mere $0.33 for the APAT WCOAP Main Event are available at partypoker right now.
The final online WCOAP event is an online Day 1 for the live Main Event. It shuffles up and deals at 8:05 p.m. BST on June 26 and concludes when only 15% of the field remains. Be in the top 15% and you progress to the live Day 2 at Dusk Till Dawn on July 3 complete with your stack from the online Day 1 and with a min-cash in tow.
