MPF Welcomes APAT Maltese Amateur Poker Championship 2018!
The Malta Poker Festival is excited to welcome the Amateur Poker Association & Tour to host the APAT Maltese Amateur Poker Championship as an integral part of MPF 2018.
APAT created the United Kingdom’s first national poker tour in 2006, and since its launch, APAT has developed into a global operator in the live events arena, holding multiple festivals in Europe and North America, in addition to a comprehensive schedule in the UK. The organization remains dedicated to the development of amateur players, providing an affordable, professionally run tour that enables members to enhance their poker skills in a fun, but competitive, environment. Members who have final-tabled APAT National events have gone on to win WSOP, WPT, EPT, Irish Open, GUKPT and many other internationally-recognized professional titles.
Tom Brady, APAT Operations Director responsible for the APAT live tour, says “we’re hugely excited to be paying our first visit to Malta, Our players can look forward to not only the traditional APAT National Championship quality event being run over 5th and 6th November 2018, but also get involved in the MPF from 1st November, where our partners have created a hugely exciting schedule for the week in a paradise destination that all poker players will no doubt revel in – sometimes poker comes second!”
Portomaso’s COO, Mr. Patrick Demanuele adds: “Our casino is ready for a wonderful week in November. We are pleased to bring the recreational player the opportunity to experience a professional “big tour” play, with such a low buy-in. Playing quality poker alongside with our beautiful location is our mission and MPF also adds the friendly atmosphere that characterizes the operation.”
Buy-in will be available soon.
Join the fantastic thrill of taking home the Championship in a great poker community, where we all win, because we learn and improve our game.
