APT Online Series India 2022 schedule

Opening Day 

For the festival’s opening day we come out fully loaded with six tournaments and the first two trophies on the line. The Kickoff event sets the pace and is one not to miss. This edition’s guarantee has been increased to IN₹ 25L, up by IN₹ 5 Lac from previous. The player to keep an eye out for is Vinayak “salmanbhai” Bajaj as there’s a strong chance he will be back to defend his title. Another to watch for is recent WSOPC Online ring winner Aniket “Anteman” Waghmare who placed 3rd.

In the early evening is the featured Sunday Major 35L which has both the most expensive buy in and the highest guarantee of opening day. If previous installments are an indication of what’s to come, then expect a sizable crowd of poker heavyweights heat up the online tables.

MAIN EVENT – IN₹ 1 Crore guaranteed

The most highly revered APT tournament is none other than the Main Event. Aside from its mighty IN₹ 1 Crore guarantee, it offers one of the best structures with slow escalating blinds to allow for plenty of playing time. Past winners were Rajat “happyfish” Mahajan and Subhayan “arjun100” Das

Date: Sunday, February 6
Buy in: IN₹ 11,000  (~US$ 148)
Guarantee: IN₹ 1 Crore (~US$ 134,365)

Championship Event – IN₹ 50 Lac guaranteed

Similar in structure to the main but double the buy in is the Championship Event. Be it live or online, this is another sought after APT tournament, especially by players seeking a combination of higher stakes and smaller fields. The past two winners are well known Indian pros Manish “thekid” Lakhotia and Gaurav “gaug17” Sood. Both players are avid online players and will likely be out there gunning for a repeat.

Date: Thursday, February 3
Buy in: IN₹ 22,000 (~US$ 296)
Guarantee: IN₹ 50 Lac (~US$ 67,180)

Players can also capture an APT Trophy at daily featured events listed below. Buy ins range from IN₹ 3,300 (~US$ 44) to IN₹ 55,000 (~US$ 740). The biggest buy in event is the Super High Roller which runs on Friday, February 4. WSOP bracelet winner Abhinav “griezmann” Iyer championed the first edition and Rajat “Lungfakeer” Sharma won the second installment. For PLO enthusiasts, two high roller events are also scheduled. 

APT #9: Monday Major 20L GTD (RE) – IN₹ 4,400 buy in
