APT Main Event Bubble Protection

In 2016, the Asian Poker Tour came up with a handy new incentive, the Main Event Bubble Protection. This perk is definitely a “must have” as it offers a type of insurance during the bubble round because let’s face it, everyone has been short-stacked during the bubble round at some point in their tournament career. To ease some of the bubble worries, the APT will reward the “protected” bubble player a consolation prize equivalent in APT tournament credits based on the Main Event buy in.

Here are the three simple steps needed to get protected:

  1. Pre-Register
  2. Draw for your seat before the starting time
  3. Have your chips put into play before the first hand is dealt for each Main Event starting day.

*Important notes: 

  1. For re-entry players, if you have already met the qualifications for Main Event Bubble Protection, you will maintain that status only on a same day re-entry. For re-entry players wanting Main Event Bubble Protection on the next starting day, you will have to repeat the steps above. This also applies to players going for multiple stacks.
  2. Tournament credits are only valid for one (1) year.
