GUKPT GOLIATH: £100,000 poker prize pool up for grabs at Coventry Ricoh Arena
THERE are big poker tournaments - and then there's The GOLIATH.
The GUKPT event is taking place at Coventry's Ricoh Arena this week and hopes to attract a record field of 1,600 for the £100 (£20) main event.
Running from the 24th to 28th August at the home of Coventry City Football Club, the Goliath has a £100,000 Guaranteed Prize Pool.
Yet to come out on top players will have to make it through three days of hard play against some of the best in Europe.
With every entrant into the tournament, 25% of the registration fee goes to Marie Curie Cancer Care, who are a charity partner to both the Coventry City Football Club and Grosvenor Casinos.
Also, should you run into a horrific bad beat and bust out earlier than you anticipated, in the Goliath tournament you have the chance to re-enter on the next day!
And as well as individual cash prizes being on offer, the event is also staging a simultaneous Team Challenge for those taking part with their buddies.
