      Hi there folks!

      I have organized a trip to the Goliath tournament that is played in Gcasino Coventry in a couple of weeks. We are about 8-10 happy fellas from the Swedish community coming over for some fun and poker.

      Any of you guys going? If so I hope we can meet up there, most of us will be arriving on the 23rd and staying until the 28th/29th (playing Day 1A), and I (and probably the rest of the bunch) will be wearing PokerStrategy.com stickers so we will be easy to recognize. Don't hesitate to approach me or one of the others for a chat or have a drink if you see us in the casino!

      Hope to see some of you there, and good luck to those of you who are playing!

      Regards,

      Hi Grindithard,

      I'm also playing day 1a, but thought it was on a Wednesday (24th Aug), maybe you can just double check and confirm which day you're all playing.

      I'm playing the main tour (GUKPT Luton) main event on 19th-21st then travelling onto Coventry from there for the Goliath.

      Would be great to meet up with you and the group you've got coming over.

      Because of a busy schedule both the week before & after, I may only be in Coventry for the day (Wednesday), returning on the Saturday if I managed to survive the first day's play of course. But I'm sure we can meet up at some point :)

      The schedule as far as I know:

      Goliath Main Event
      Day 1a - Wednesday 24th August
      Day 1b - Thursday 25th August
      Day 1c - Friday 26th August
      Day 2 - Saturday 27th August
      Day 3 (Final Day) - Sunday 28th August

      Hi Yoghi,

      The Goliath is a £100+20 (25% of fee going to charity). Also a Re-Entry, not Rebuy.

      25k starting stack/40 mins blinds (days 1 & 2), 60 mins blinds (day 3)

      £100k Guaranteed, they're hoping for over 1,600 entries.


      Only the main gukpt tour events are £1k as far as i know. Are you going to be in Luton next weekend?

      Best regards,


      Bart

      p.s. I can't really link you to the official page as it has affiliate links to a non-partner platform, but you find everything you need by web searching GUKPT ;)
