Sleeping Giant Awakes In Coventry As Goliath Begins
Players from all over the UK and beyond are gearing up to take part in one of the biggest tournaments of the year as the GUKPT Goliath kicks off in Coventry’s Ricoh Arena at midday today.
There, up to 1,600 players will compete for a guaranteed prize pool of £100,000 – with at least £25,000 going to the eventual winner – over the course of three separate start days, with the fields combining on Saturday.
At just £100 + £20 to enter, the Goliath is a wallet-friendly way to take your shot at some big prizes and – given the expected number of entrants – your potential return on investment will be quite unlike that of any other UK tournament.
In addition to the prizes on offer, the Goliath will also be running a team promotion in which up to six players can join forces for the chance to win a host of extra bonuses including entry into next year’s event, a trophy and a private £1,000 tournament.
With 25,000 chip starting stacks and a 40 minute clock, the event promises to be Goliath in every sense of the word and it will take a herculean effort to eventually emerge victorious from the huge field, but for the player who does it’ll be worth it.
