Ladies & gentlemen… welcome to the kick off of the BELGIAN AMATEUR POKER TOUR 2017!
2016 was pretty amazing… player numbers increased rapidly and that caused some problems to go along. The Casino de Spa had to drag old tables out of the basement, while in Namur we had too many players to play out the tournament in 2 days (and keep the decent structure that we want). But we adapted and coped with it… All to give our players the best possible experience! Are you ready for a new APAT season?
Our first stop will be in the Casino de Spa in February. We chose to bring back our most popular events like the Crazy Pineapple, The Progressive Bounty and the Mix Max! A new season brings a new Player of the Year… Who will be the new Trifon Pappas? Who will be the first Main Event winner of 2017?
It will be an exciting weekend of poker for all kinds of players to enjoy. We will warm up with the Progressive Bounty on Friday where you eliminate your opponents and increase your bounty as you earn cash rewards! But the higher your bounty gets the more people will have their sights set on you…
After a warm up it’s time for the real deal, our Main Event!
Tickets are already available on the website and we strongly advise that you buy tickets in advance, this is to guarantee yourself a seat!
Then we have our Mix Max, starting full ring (10-handed), but as the field gets smaller we evolve into 6-max and eventually Heads Up!
Good news for a lot of our players: the Crazy Pineapple is back! We had to sacrifice this event last November in Namur, but in Spa you will again be able to enjoy the action! 3 cards dealt to you preflop, when the action has taken place, you must discard one card on the flop, which way will you go? Will you make the right decision? Will you kick yourself knowing you threw away the wrong card?
