Goliath Is Coming

Wednesday, 27 July 2016

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.

Grosvenor Casino’s Goliath tournament has grown from strength to strength since 2011 and is now a must-attend fixture on the UK poker circuit. Last year’s event saw 4,210 entries from a field of 2,764 players and awarded Finnish poker player Miikka Toikka £70,800 in cash for his first place victory in the main event.

This year is set to not just be bigger but better with games like Joker Is Wild and Win The Button spread alongside favourites including Omaha 4/5/6 and 50/50.

Besides all the action, players will be given multiple shots at the trophy with seven Day 1s where players able to re-enter twice per day. So if you bust out of Day 1A, you will have two more re-buys that day, the following day and at each one of the seven Day 1s thereafter.

There are three ways that you can get involved. You can register on the Goliath site, you can pay your £120 at any of the 55 Grosvenor Casinos, you can play a live satellite at your local Grosvenor card room or you can play a £0.25 satellite on Thursday and Sunday nights at 8pm at
