Have you ever traveled several hours to a tournament feeling excited and confident, only to have a really tough draw or a few bad rolls? Poof...just like that you are eliminated on the first day. It happens to all of us on occasion but it's a bummer if you are looking forward to an action-packed weekend of pool.
That is why we almost always hold a 2nd Chance Tournament on day #2 (normally Sunday) of APT tour stops. Anyone eliminated prior to the start of the 2nd Chance Tournament, which is usually 12:30 p.m., may enter. The usual format is as follows:

So, when you attend an APT event and get eliminated on the first day, don't go home early! Stay, play, and have a great time playing in the 2nd Chance Tournament.
