Organisers of the £100+£20 buy-in event have revealed details of a special Team Challenge where the winning five-person team will compete for $1,000 in a private online tournament as well as gaining entry into next year's Goliath. Points will be awarded for in-the-money finishing positions for members of teams only - the highest combined score will win that team the money, entries, trophy and glory.£100,000 in prize money is guaranteed in the Goliath which takes place at Coventry's Ricoh Arena from 24th to 28th August. A GUKPT Main Event seat worth £1,000 will be given away by Goliath organisers in a special free draw once the field hits 800. Satnam Sandhu was the lucky winner of the first Landmark Giveaway prize which was donated when the field hit 400.
