Grosvenor Poker is the place to be if you want to play in this year’s edition of the massive Goliath tournament.
The Goliath is one of the most eagerly anticipated live events of the year. Still, with Prime Minister Boris Johnson only recently giving the green light for casinos to reopen, Grosvenor Poker has moved the Goliath online.
At 4 p.m. BST today, Day 1 will commence with the buy-in set at £115 + £10 and features a £100,000 guaranteed prize pool.
Players will sit down with a 25,000 chip stack with the blinds set at 30 minutes for the duration. Level 1 begins at 100/100.
Late registration lasts until the end of the 13th Level in case you can’t make it for the start time. Blinds at this point will be 1,000/2,500/250a. Anyone with even a single chip in front of them at 1:00 a.m. progresses to Day 2, which kicks off at 2:00 p.m. on August 9.
Players are permitted to re-enter up to five times while late registration is open, meaning it is definitely worth your time entering the plethora of satellites that start at only £0.25 to see if you can arm yourself with more £125 bullets.
Grosvenor first ran the Goliath back in August 2011. Some 1,765 players bought in for £120 and were all outlasted by Lee Rawsonwho banked an impressive £32,705. The event has grown every year since its creation to the point an incredible 9,300 players competed in 2019, making it the largest live poker tournament run outside of Las Vegas. It ended in a five-way chop that saw those five player share almost £340,000!
This time around, keep your eyes peeled for Team Grosvenor consisting of Joe Beevers, Andy Hills, Katie Swift, Rick Trigg, streamer Jamie Nixon and Jeff Kimber, plus the recently signed former World Champion boxer the one and only David “Hayemaker” Haye.
