APAT UK Team Championship 2018 - Blackpool - 2nd-4th Feb

Recommended Posts

I've not been keeping up with APAT things this season. Presume we would need to apply for a team place and hope for the best, but I know it's always over subscribed and we may have used our chance up last year! :lol  Happy to try though, can you give me a nudge in the right direction when applications open.  I would think most of last year's team would be interested in playing again, along with others who weren't available then. ;)

 

Do you know if there will be an online series route in like last year?

I am up for both

Me too. Seeing as we won this league last year it would be good to defend our title. Like2Fish? Teaulc? Can we reunite "The Invincibles"?

Details from APAT forum http://www.apat.com/premierleague/

 

OVERVIEW

The APAT Premier League gives all poker players the chance to get together with friends and poker buddies to pit their wits against the best amateur poker teams out there.

 

Teams consist of four players that then compete in a series of NLHE Multi Table Freezeout tournaments with the top 50% of the field picking up points towards their own teams total.

 

APAT will run a leaderboard so that all players can keep track of their teams position and also keep an eye on their closest rivals.  For the Premier League running during September 2017, the top three teams will be invited to enter a team into the Season 11 APAT UK Team Championship.

 

This is always one of the most popular live events on the APAT calendar.  Entries are highly sought after each season and the APAT Premier League gives everyone the chance to guarantee a team into heading to Blackpool on the weekend of the 2nd – 4th February 2018.

 

SCHEDULE

The APAT Premier League will run across four Sundays in September 2017.

 

Wk 1 – Sunday 3rd September 2017 – 7pm

 

Wk 2 – Sunday 10th September 2017 – 7pm

 

Wk 3 – Sunday 17th September 2017 – 7pm

 

Wk 4 – Sunday 24th September 2017 – 7pm

 

All tournaments are £11 buyin with 6 levels (60 mins) of late registration

5k Starting stacks with 10 minute levels

 

SCORING

The top 50% of the field (rounded up for an odd number of runners) will collect points with the first of those to exit collecting 1pt and the winner collecting the maximum pts for that tournament.

Team points are the total of the 3 highest finishers in any one team.  These are then adjusted by the Team Multiplier to calculate the final Team Points for that tournament.

The Team Multiplier for each team is based on the number of players in each individual team that finish in the points positions :-   1 Player = 1x, 2 Players = 1.2x, 3 Players = 1.3x

In the event of a tie amongst teams on the leaderboard, the team with the higher number of individual players in the points across all events will be deemed the higher finishing team.  If this is equal, then the team with the player who collected the highest individual points in all events across the series will be deemed the higher finishing team.

EXAMPLE

In an 84 runner event, Team Duffy finish 3rd, 12th, 33rd & 62nd.

 

Points will be awarded to the top 42 finishers.

 

3rd Place = 40 pts

12th Place = 31 pts

33rd Place = 10 pts

Total team points = 81 x 1.3 Team Multiplier = 105.3

 

PAYOUTS

All prize pools for each event will be paid out as standard following the Grosvenor Poker Online payout structures.

The top three teams on the APAT Premier League leaderboard at the end of Wk 4 will receive an invite to enter a team of 8 players into the APAT UK Team Poker Championship to be held at the G Casino, Blackpool on the weekend of the 2nd-4th February 2018.  This is a guaranteed invite only.  Teams will be liable for their own buyin, accommodation and travel expenses incurred during the weekend of the live team event.

Invites are at the discretion of APAT and we reserve the right to amend invites and the invitation process at any time.

 

TEAM NAME

We’d love to see team names incorporate a group name, location, nickname or something that relates to you and your team mates.  Be a little bit creative, and in return, APAT will design you a team logo that we will use on the website and social media.

If you already have a logo or someone in your team with better skills than us (that shouldn’t be too difficult), then just send us your logo (600×600 pixels, preferably in .png format) either via our Facebook page, group or Twitter account, and we’ll add it to your team.

Details from APAT site are above. Starts this Sun, 7pm on Grosvenor.

If we are doing a team (or more than one) can you decide on a Captain who then needs to go on the link and do the registration. It needs Captain's details (name, email) and screen names of all the team along with team name. (Please include Punters Lounge or PL in the name you choose). I have a file with the PL logo I can send but not in .png formal. Paul may have this.

Need to leave this with you guys to sort yourselves out please. :ok

@AlbusFawkes @ian309 @Nosey-P @GirlyWirly believe you are in other teams? Keep us posted of how you're doing if so and will leave entry in the diary :ok

 

Hi Helen, I'm not playing the Premier League qualifiers as I've somehow managed to sneak into the APAT Forum team.

We could still apply to play in the finals. There's only a limited number of places, but we might be accepted on the grounds that we played last year. I'm sure we'd get 8 members for a team.

remind me if it gets to October and I've not done this :ok

Delighted to confirm we have a place at the Team Champs live event in February, despite a record number of entries. Current details below from APAT forum, full details and updates on their thread. http://www.apat.com/forum/index.php/topic,20268.0.html

Could all players interested in being considered for the team of 8 please post in this thread. Whilst I will also post info on our Facebook group I would like the forum to be the point of contact so need you to respond here.  Please make sure you are a member of APAT forum (sign up at http://www.APAT.com) and you would need a Grosvenor Poker account in order to pay the buy-in. :ok

Firstly, we don't take it lightly when we say 'apologies' to those who have not made the cut... this year we've had the usual high number of team applications and it has been the hardest decisions to have to leave teams out - so to those who have not made it this year, please understand we are restricted to a maximum number and we hope you will continue to apply in future years.

We draw your attention to the following:

The tournament will be run as an MTT with teams of 8 players each competing for both a team and an individual prize pool, paid out on a 50/50 basis to the top 3 teams and the top placed Individuals.

The buyin is £75+£7 per player and is to be paid in advance via a Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank by each individual.
 
Payment by individuals will be co-ordinated via myself and each Team Captain - so Team Captains, please take a keen interest in ensuring that each of your members have a Grosvenor Poker account (download via http://www.apat.com/grosvenor-poker/) and that you know their table/screen nickname so you (we) can identify them in the Online Holding Tank.  The Grosvenor Poker Online Holding Tank will be available late October and Team Captains will all be advised when it is live in the lobby - and also advised of the password for their team members.

The top X players in the MTT will score points for their team. Eg, 1st = 120 pts down to 120th = 1 pt.

Teams are to wear their own matching colour team shirts for both days of the event - if desired, EMBROIDERED POLO SHIRTS OR T-SHIRTS are available from APAT at a subsidised cost of £15 per shirt (reduced from £18) and in addition to the APAT logo and UK Team Championship event wording embroidered onto the shirt breast, can be branded with the Team Name plus player name or nickname (other wording or team logo embroidery is also possible but will cost more depending on requirements) - to order send a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.  Shirts ordered via APAT will be available from the Friday night in the casino.

On the day, teams will be required to have a team photo taken PRIOR to the event starting - therefore please arrive by 1:30pm latest to allow the timely completion of this and not hold up the event starting because you"re too late!

The event has on occasion previously suffered from "team last minute dropouts", and therefore, as we did previously, we will again maintain a team reserve list.  All individual team members need to pay the entry fee of £82 via Grosvenor Poker in advance by 9pm on Friday 5th January 2018.  Any team failing to meet the buyin deadline for all 8 members will have their entry offered to teams on the reserve list.  Any team that pays the full buyins and has a last minute need to drop out will have their entry offered to the next team on the reserve list and whichever team takes up this option will have their buyins used to reimburse the team (via APAT) that had to drop out.

Team Captains need to inform APAT of their team members" names by by Friday 5th Jan 2018, either by sending a PM to myself via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.  A full list of all team  members will be published to the APAT Forum thereafter, along with the table/seat draw.

The event structure can be found HERE - although 12 levels will be played on Day 1, and break times may vary.

APAT Player Of The Year Leaderboard Ranking Points will be awarded for this event.

If you have any questions about the event, feel free to post on this thread or don"t hesitate to contact me personally by PM via HERE or via Facebook Messenger HERE.
