Those of you who are on the lookout for some affordable live poker tournaments in the United Kingdom or Ireland during August are in luck because there more than a dozen of them to get your teeth stuck into.
Kicking off yesterday, July 28, and running through to August 7 is the £250,000 guaranteed Goliath tournament, which you can get involved in for only £120. The Goliath is a superb tournament, and every poker player worth their salt should give it a go at some point in their careers, so why not the 2016 edition?
Another £250,000 guaranteed tournament is taking place at Dusk Till Dawn in Nottingham. DTD welcomes back its popular £500 Deepstack, and has slapped a guarantee of a quarter of a million pounds this time around. Keep August 25-29 free if you want to play in this event.
