Goliath & Redtooth – don't miss our amazing hotel offers!

By Mad Harper

The Goliath, Europe’s biggest poker tournament, is nearly here – and we have two fantastic special offers for both weekends of the event.

We’re celebrating Redtooth Poker’s debut at this year’s Goliath with a fantastic discount on twin rooms, offering savings of £80 for a two-night package this coming weekend. A twin room at the DoubleTree at the Ricoh will cost just £199 – checking in this Friday, July 28, and staying through to Sunday. We have the same great deal for players in the giant Goliath Main Event – with two-night twin rooms at the DoubleTree the following weekend, from Friday, August 4 through to Sunday August 6.

 

 

 Redtooth’s Goliath debut

The flagship Redtooth Poker €25,000 guarantee, £75 + £12 buy-in “The Big One” takes place at the GUKPT Goliath on Saturday, July 29. On the Sunday there’s a £30 + £8 buy-in Win the Button tournament. The first of eight dealer-dealt legs is also taking place at The Goliath, with the £60 + £12 RPT Tag Team event.
