The sixth season of the UK-based Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) will kick off in Coventry early in April – but hopefuls had better be quick as any remaining seats are up for grabs right now.
Satellite qualifiers came to a conclusion last midweek, but players looking to get involved in the 200-capacity, two-day William Hill English Amateur Poker Championship No-Limit Hold’em main event can buy in directly for £75+£7.50.
With places limited, we at UK Poker Player advise you to get on over to William Hill right now to avoid the disappointment of missing out on the April 7 to 8 event.
The opening main event on the tour begins at 14:30 British Summer Time (BST) for Day 1 and at 13:00 BST on Day 2, with players starting on 15,000 chips for 45-minute blind levels.
Coventry Stop Features Several Poker Variations
The Coventry stop will also feature two mixed game championships, a Pot-Limit Omaha event and a No-Limit Hold’em tournament, with all these events costing £20+£2 and offering main event eliminations the opportunity for more action.
To register for the main event, take a visit to the William Hill Exclusives category and then find the ‘English Amateur Holding Tank’ tab. You must also enter a password, ‘apatmember’, which is for the £75 seat that also charges a registration fee of £7.50.
As seats can only be bought through the William Hill site, make sure to get in there quickly.
You can also take advantage of William Hill’s first-deposit bonus of 200% up to $2,000 (or £1,250), as well as exclusive $250 freerolls. Just key in bonus code ‘PNREPORT’ when registering for these wonderful offers.
