Notes on APT POY Formula:

  • Only players receiving a cash prize will be eligible for points.
  • When making any type of deal where it changes the posted payouts (bubble saves, creating another place, ICM, chops of any kind where players are playing for the must 15% of 1st place) regardless of what type of deal is made, the remaining points will be chopped evenly amongst the player involved in the deal.
  • The Buy-Ins at all events will be converted to US Dollars (US$) on the Day of the event to determine the conversion  The prevailing conversion rate at [www.oanda.com] at the close of Day 1A of the Main Event shall be followed.
  • 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!
