Previous Events

Every year, the Goliath gets bigger and better. More side events, more cash games, more players and more fun. Check out how the Goliath has grown over the years.

What to expect

Expect a poker experience that’s closer to Las Vegas than anything else in Europe. A huge casino, with thousands of like-minded, fun-loving players and the opportunity to win a life changing sum for a reasonably small buy-in awaits.

What you won’t get is silent tables, there are plenty of other events for die-hard serious players. The Goliath is a fun event, tailored for the enjoyment of amateur players. A wide variety of side games, action-packed cash games and activities on-site make this an event players enjoy coming back to year after year.

1,621 players tried to qualify via online satellites in 2017, with 604 players pre-registering online. These wily players not only qualified for a fraction of the price, but avoided queuing at the event.
