The UK’s Biggest Poker Event! Online Poker Satellite Action For The UKGPT Goliath In 2012
Grosvenor operate casinos in most major towns and cities across the UK, and also run a live poker tour which has been growing year-on-year. With buy-ins between 100 and 1000 this tour appeals to local amateurs and travelling pros alike. Good news! You can now win seats in the Grosvenor Poker Tour events at online poker sites – this article covers qualifiers to the UKGPT ‘Goliath’ event which will be held in Coventry starting August the 22nd 2012.
‘Goliath’ is big because of the number of entrants, with last year’s event attracting more than 1,700 players. The buy-in is kept small, at just 120, the idea is that the sheer number of players lead to big payouts for the final table. Last year’s winner – Lee Rawson – turned his 120 into more than 32,000… and if you do not have that 100 handy, you can start the qualifiers over at Titan Poker for just 12 cents!
Before I get into how the qualifiers work – a little more information on the UKGTP Goliath 2012.

I’m a big fan of Titan Poker. Their place on the iPoker Network ensures they benefit from the sports-betting cross over traffic from brands such as Bet365 and William Hill. At the same time they are poker specialists, and really know how to look after their players. With satellite qualifiers this soft you really should check out the tables for yourself.
