- APT has absolute and sole discretion in the computation and determination of the APT POY award.
Buy-in Type x Field Size/Pay Break x Type of Event/Place Points = APT Player of the Year points
A Player joins the Head Hunter Event with a buy-in of US$ 200 (= 1.2 multiplier). Registration closes with 107 players (= 2.5 multiplier). You end up placing 5th (= 38 points). 1.2 X 2.5 X 38 = 114 APT Player of the Year Points!
