The Grand Slam is a qualifier only tournament with entry limited to the Grand Slam qualifying venues leaderboard or anyone who plays 30 Grand Slam qualifying events. These venues are part of ALH Group.

If the venue has more than one event per week, the top 15 on each of the nightly leaderboards and the top 15 on the venue leaderboard will qualify through.

A full list of the Grand Slam venues can be found by keeping an eye out for the Grand Slam qualifying venues on our daily schedules at playapl.com. 

There will be a $3 prize pool fee per player at each of the events that are not FreeRolls. 100% of these funds will go towards the prize pool. At the event there is a $25 optional addon of which 100% will be placed into the prize pool helping to generate at least $42,500 in cash and 5x $1500 APL Million seats. 

If the prize pool does not exceed $50,000 APL will pay the difference.  If the prize pool exceeds $50,000 cash will be paid out to the top 10% of players.

Tips to Qualify!

- Play the same night, at the same venue every week!  By doing this you increase your chances of getting on a venue leaderbaord.

- It is easier to qualify through a venue with less players! 

How the leaderboards work.

- Top 16 of each event get extra points, you get 10 points for playing and 1st will receive 125 points + the number of players at the event.

- If you get points early on, you are in a good position, keep playing that event over the season to help qualify!


*Please note, APL has the right to add extra qualifiers to the event at their discretion.  This can be done by extending qualifications, running satellite events or by special invite.
