Main Event Bubble Protection

Main Event Bubble Protection will be in effect. For those new to this fantastic APT incentive, players that have qualified for the protection will be protected during the bubble round. What that means is, if a protected player falls as the bubble, that player will receive one Main Event buy-in back in the form of APT tournament credits. To qualify, all you need to do is follow these steps:

  1. Pre-register
  2. Draw for your seat before starting time
  3. Have your chips put into play on the first deal of Level 1

*Players that qualify for bubble protection will maintain the status on the same day re-entry. For players wanting bubble protection on a next day re-entry will have to repeat the steps in order to be eligible.
