The Amateur Poker Association & Tour (APAT) has announced the schedule for what is the 10th season of its ever popular tour for recreational players. It also announced a new headline partner for the coming season.

Grosvenor Casinos and APAT will join forces for Season 10, meaning all of the stops held in the United Kingdom are hosted at Grosvenor properties. The partnership with Grosvenor Casinos adds plenty of value for the APAT players in the form of £550 Grosvenor UK Poker Tour seats for the winners of the yet-to-be announced online championship events.

Season 10 once again sees the APAT head to Belgium, twice, while a stop in Dublin is also on the cards, as is a trip to Las Vegas in 2017.

Speaking of Las Vegas, as part of the 10th anniversary celebration, APAT is awarding thousands of pounds' worth of added and guaranteed Las Vegas packages throughout the season. Seats to the Colossus event at the 2017 World Series of Poker, plus travel and accommodation will be awarded to the:

  • Nine APAT National Amateur champions
  • World Championship of Amateur Poker Main Event champion
  • The APAP No. 1 ranked player
