Grosvenor Casinos, one of the largest casino and poker operators, has announced the date for their popular annual poker tournament. The Goliath Poker Tournament will take place from the 1st August to the 10th August. This marks the first time in history in which the tournament will take place online.

Goliath is one of the most anticipated live poker events of the year, but with Europe, the UK and the rest of the world experiencing the COVID-19 crisis, Grosvenor Poker has moved the Goliath online.

Grosvenor established the Goliath Tournament back in August 2011. Since then, the event has grown every year. In 2019, around 9,300 players participated in the competition, making it the largest live poker tournament to run outside of Las Vegas. This year, the prize pool will be worth over £100,000. It also features 15 value-packed events with the prize pool of more than £300,000.

Goliath Online Poker Tournament also features a great number of satellite tournaments that cost only £0.25 to enter but will still allow you to qualify for the main event. The Opener, a 2-day event, starts at 4 PM on Saturday 1st August 2020 with a guaranteed £20,000 prize and a £50+5 buy-in.
