Online poker room partypoker has joined forces with the Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) to create quality online tournament options for players to enjoy. The options are open to players around the world, promoting events for amateurs to take advantage of.
The APAT is a bustling community of poker players who like to meet and play in a live setting. However, the coronavirus has put a stop to live poker gaming and left APAT members with a lack of gameplay. To keep players active, the APAT decided to team up with partypoker and begin offering special events online.
An example of such events is the Daily Splash. This event has a buy-in of just $5.50 and offers tournament gaming in No Limit Hold’em format. This event takes place each day at 3:00pm. Players are given $50,000 in chips and will play with a six-minute clock.
Another fun option is the APAT Poker Squads. This series of tournaments includes a team element so that players can work together. The squads are teams of four that will compete in daily tournaments. The top three scores each week will be calculated and more prizes awarded based on how well teams did during the week.
The APAT Poker Squads events have a $5.50 buy-in as well, taking place at 8:00pm. Each day of the week, players can compete in a Squad event, with varying formats for diversified gameplay. On Monday, players compete in No Limit Hold’em while Tuesday is reserved for Pot Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 6-Max. Wednesday is for No Limit Hold’em PKO while Thursday is Mix-Max.
Friday brings back No Limit Hold’em, this time in 6-Max form while Saturday is reserved for Pot Limit Omaha and Sunday offers No Limit Hold’em Deepstack gaming.
On top of all that, the APAT is also offering Heads-Up tournaments on Tuesday nights and Seven Card Stud on Thursdays!
High Roller and Championship Options
There are larger APAT events at partypoker that take place later in the week and have larger buy-ins. On Fridays, players can take part in the APAT Championship Friday PLO. This event has a larger buy-in, but it is only $16.50. in this event, players will be given 100,000 in chips and play eight-minute blinds.
On Saturday, hold’em fans will find an APAT Championship with the same $16.50 buy-in and $100,000 starting chip stack. Blinds also increase every eight minutes in this event.
On Sunday, players can take part in the special Sunday Roller which features a direct buy-in of $55 or a Phase 1 tournament that can get you to the event with a buy-in of $5.50. The Phase 1 option runs each day of the week to help players vie for a spot in the big event.
The APAT action at partypoker is plentiful and waiting for players to explore. With so many gaming options, players can choose to compete in a different event each day, if they so choose!
