One of the best value tournaments in British poker starts today with one lucky player at the GUKPT Goliath set to turn £100 into a chunky five-figure score.
The first of four opening flights at the G Casino at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry gets under way at noon today with players starting with stacks of 25,000 chips and a 40-minute clock. In addition to the £200,000 guaranteed Main Event there is plenty of side action scheduled with a £75+£8 buy-in, £5,000 GTD the highlight tonight. Other events to look forward to include win the button and joker poker tournaments as well as student specials and his and hers mixed doubles. The complete tournaments schedule is available here. Les Fenton was the metaphorical David who conquered last year's Goliath. The architect from St Albans bested a massive field of 1,954 runners to walk away with a first prize of £31,210. Not bad for a £100 investment!
The sixth annual edition of Grosvenor Casinos’ Goliath tournament series may have begun last week but players are being advised that there is still time to qualify for seats into its prestigious £120 buy-in main event.
Land-based and online gaming products innovator Scientific Games Corporation is set to run its second annual Shuffle Master Classic event next month offering one lucky poker player the chance to walk away with $100,000 in cash.
Land-based casino operator Estoril Sol has been awarded the first online gaming license for Portugal and has teamed up with platform provider Gaming1 to launch the new EstorilSolCasinos.pt domain.
With 5,000 expected entries, £250,000 guaranteed in prizes and only £120 to play, its no wonder Coventry is the place to be between July 30 and August 7.
