GUKPT Goliath - G Casino Coventry - avongirl 5th for £8100

Recommended Posts

European Poker Tournament Record Attempt. The official announcement for this is not till next week so this may change slightly but this is how things will run as far as I am aware. Others have reported this on some other forums but some of the details they have may be slightly out of date now. The latest news is as follows. £100 Entry + £20 Registration* * 25% of the registration fees are being donated to Marie Curie. No Limit Holdem Deepstack (25,000 starting stack) £100,000 Prize Money Guaranteed From August 24th to 28th 2011 They hope to get over 1,500 players and break the European Record but DTD may well set a new even higher record shortly! G are going for, 3 x Day ones (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) starting at 12 Noon each day, with 500 players each day. They may even have a 4th day 1 if the event gets enough interest or just increase the number of runners per day. 1 x Day 2 on Saturday Final Day on Sunday (play to finish) The tournament will be held in the conference suite adjacent to the casino which is part of the Ricoh stadium, they can easily accommodate 500+ players in there it's huge. Entry via any G or Grosvenor Casino and satellites will be held weekly at G Coventry, and various other Grosvenor and G Casinos and online at GCasino.com. The event is being run in association with the Ricoh Arena, GCasino.com, D4events & Marie Curie Cancer Care. One huge mistake IMO is to hold it at the same time as the APAT event at DTD. I would definitely have played both if they were on separate weekends. I will post details of the side events on my blog; http://fluence-poker-dinosaur.blogspot.com/2011/03/poker-exclusive-gukpt-goliath.html as soon as I have them.

Re: GUKPT Goliath 24th - 28th August 2011 - G Casino Coventry Just to let you know that G Casinos are running simultaneous satellites in EVERY G Casino cardroom for Goliath packages. Still to be 100% confirmed but it looks likely to be the following: £40 freezeout with 8k stacks and 30 minute blinds. The package is worth £300. So £120 seat and 3 nights in the Ricoh Arena Hotel. I will confirm the dates when definite but looks like it will be Mon 6th June, Mon 4th July and Mon 1st Aug at a G Casino near you!
