Katie Comes Swiftly Back

AaronMcBride • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Katie Swift recently had to rebuy and was straight back into the action.

Swift raised to 3,500 from under the gun and "Solvedit" called from the small blind.

The action went check-check on both the {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}{6-Hearts} flop, and the {4-Diamonds} turn, before "Solvedit" bet 2,500 on the {5-Clubs} river.

Swift called but mucked after "Solvedit" revealed {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}.

Hills and Nixon Shove

AaronMcBride • Level 8: 400-800, 80 ante

Team Grosvenor's Jamie Nixon and Andy Hills are both playing shoving stacks, and have done exactly that is recent hands.

Nixon three-bet all in for 17,000 from the big blind after an open from the cutoff, and took down the pot, before it was time for Hills to make his move.

The action folded to the button who min-raised, and after the small blind folded, Hills moved all in for 11,000 and won the pot.

"Don’t Count Anyone Out"

AaronMcBride • Level 8: 400-800, 80 ante

Andy Hills believes every Goliath entrant has a chance of walking away with the title because the structure rewards patience, skill, and adaptability.

“Don’t count anyone out. I can’t stress enough that everyone has a chance in the Goliath.”

One of the features that stands out when you look at the Goliath Main Event in any details is its superb structure, especially when you consider the tournament only costs £125 to enter.

Both Joe Beevers and Rick Trigg believe the event has “an amazing structure for a £100 buy-in” with Trigg unable to contain his excitement about jumping in and getting involved. Katie Swiftcalls the structure “an absolute luxury."
