Goliath 2012


Be part of Europe's largest ever amateur poker tournament at the Ricoh Arena. 22nd August - 27th August 2012

Goliath 2012

The GUKPT Goliath, the ultimate amateur deepstack poker championship, is back!

This huge £100 + £20 event broke the European land-based entry record last year and offers its entrants a prizepool usually associated with only the highest stakes tournaments. Six days of poker at the Vegas-style Grosvenor G Casino, Coventry at The Ricoh Arena will see a new champion emerge from an estimated 2,500 entrants.

Last year Lee Rawson outlasted a field of 1,765 to take home £32,705 for toppling Goliath; the 2012 mega-tournament seeks to break new ground with a 50% bigger field and cement its place in the record books.
