GUKPT unveils Goliath schedule

GUKPT unveils Goliath schedule

Wednesday, 24 April 2013

The GUKPT is once again giving recreational players a shot at a huge prize pool as its Goliath tournament makes a very welcome return to Coventry's Ricoh Arena.

A guaranteed prize pool of £200,000 is on offer in the £100+£20 buy-in event with the first of four opening day flights start on Tuesday 20th August. The eventual winner will be crowned on Monday 26th August.

Players will start with stacks of 20,000 chip with the clock initially set at 40 minutes before stretching to an hour on the final day. The field is capped at 400 on each day so register early.

In addition to the £200,000 Main Event there's plenty of side event action lined up, including King and Queen Mixed Doubles, Win The Button and a £25,000 guaranteed 25/25 event. The full side event schedule is available here.

Les Fenton was last year's metaphorical David who conquered the GUKPT Goliath. The 30-year-old outlasted a huge field of 1,954 entries at Coventry's G Casino to walk away with a first prize of £31,210.

Online satellites for this year's Goliath start at 8pm tonight at Grosvenor Casino Poker.
