What to expect at Goliath: an interview with Will Kassouf

How many times have you heard about “the fight of the century”, “a miracle” or an “unbelievable performance” during a relatively forgettable sporting event? Hyperbole like this seamlessly rolls from the tongues of sports commentators as effortlessly as breathing.

However, one event which needs no buffing is the Goliath: the biggest poker tournament outside Las Vegas. With a field of nearly 6,000 entrants and a total prize pool of more than £575,000, it is no exaggeration to say that this event is a Goliath in every sense of the word.

On Thursday 27th July, poker players of varying abilities will gather at the Grosvenor Casino Coventry (Ricoh Arena) to take part in one of the world’s most exciting poker tournaments.

We spoke to the one and only Will Kassouf to hear his strategy for Goliath 2017.
