Welsh APAT Championships Head to Cardiff
The latest leg of the Amateur Poker Association Tour heads to Cardiff this weekend, and as per usual it is already sold out. The event has a new location having moved up the M4 from Swansea to Cardiff, and it will be staged in the new complex that is the Les Croupiers Casino which neighbours the Cardiff City Stadium.
The APAT is now in its fifth season and this weekend will see the Welsh Amateur Poker Championships contested and it will be the third event of this years tour, with the previous two events being staged in Coventry and Newcastle. As we have already mentioned this weekends event has sold out all of its £75 seats but there will be plenty of other action to be had if you are in the vicinity this weekend.
Two time APAT Champion Ben Young is sure to be in attendance as is last years winner of this particular event Gareth Johns, who both hail from Cardiff. All winners on
the tour win a gold medal and a trophy, but they also gain an entry to a UKIPT main event courtesy of the sponsorship that the APAT has with 888Poker.
If you are visiting the Les Croupiers Casino and staying in Cardiff overnight there is even a shuttle bus available called “The Casino Flyer” to ferry you to and from the venue. It runs on a daily basis from Westgate Street to the new premises with a five minute turnaround. The Shuttle starts at 7pm and runs seven days a week and runs until 6am Monday – Thursday and Sundays and 4am Fridays and Saturdays. It is good to see venues catering for all of its customers.
Make sure you check back with us next week here at PokerNewsBoy where we will have all the latest information on the winner of this great event.
