Tim Tim the new Chip Leader – 31/07/2018 – 21:33

Zoltan Lengyel raises to 7,000 with Tim Timotheou 3-betting to 21,000 and Zoltan calls.

Flop is Zoltan checks and Tim leads out for 50% of the Pot. Zoltan announces All in and Tim beats Zoltan with his chips in the middle. Card over.

Zoltan has for the Flopped Set and Tim looks deflated as he turns over

Turn is for a nothing card and Tim needs a Ace to stay in the game. This is a +400,000 chip pot. River is the to send the Massive pot to Tim and send Zoltan out of the Goliath. Incredible.

Tim now has a chip stack of nearly 500,000

We have over 500 players sitting down on Day 1d. We had 625 total on Day 1d in 2017. Definitely getting smashed!!!!.

Good morning and welcome back to Day 1c of the Goliath.

Yesterday was a Great day with 842 entries in total over the late registration period. Today we are not expected to get close to that, but it should be another action packed day of poker. 102 players made it through the day and will join us on Saturday for Day 2.

The tournament is a £100+£25 Buy in with a massive £100,000 guaranteed for 1st place!! For their buy in the players receive 25,000 chips on a 40 minute clock, with registration open for the first 6 levels.

Play will begin at 11am and we’re looking forward to another busy busy days play.
