GUKPT Goliath Returning This August


shutterstock_118558345The Grosvenor UK Poker Tour Goliath has been scheduled to run again this year, with the GUKIPT this time using the Ricoh Arena in Coventry as its venue.

This event is aimed at giving the lower stakes players a chance at winning some life changing money, with the initial outlay’s being more than worth that chance. The event will kick off on the 18th of August and run through until the 26th and will offer its players the chance of winning a number of events.

Of course, the Main Event will always be the one to grab the most attention, with the £100+£20 event giving players a 20k starting stack and the chance at winning a good slice of the £200,000 guaranteed prize pool. This event has three opening day flights, with the event starting on the 20th August and running right until the series ends on the 26th.

Along with that event there are others that are sure to interest you all, with there being events such as a “King and Queen” doubles event that allows one man and one woman to team up in an effort to win the tournament. Another event is a £25,000 guaranteed event called the 25/25.

The player that won the Goliath last year was Les Fenton after he managed to navigate past a huge field of 1,954 players to take home the first place payout of £31,210.
