We only have another 20 minutes remaining in this level. The players will then go on a 15 minute break and then after that break they will play one more level (50k/100k). This will be the final level of the tournament, as the casino closes at 6am.

If the players did an even chop now, they would take home £13,757, which is almost 2nd place money for each of them. As 1st is £23,550 however, I would guess that at least a couple of them are happy to keep playing for now.

Thomas calls from the cut off. Anthony makes it 450k from the sb, but then Tom Gates moves all-in from the bb. Thomas folds, but Anthony makes the call for all his 1.6m chips.

Tom K-K
Anthony A-Q

Flop 8-J-A

Turn 4

River J

Anthony hits an Ace on the flop to double up. Tom takes a big hit and is now the shortest stack.

When the players return they will play 1 more level at 50k/100k with a 10k ra. If the tournament has not been completed by the end of this next level, then an ICM chip count deal will be forced upon the players.

The dynamic is very interesting now as we enter the final 30 minutes of play. If we reach the end of this level, then an ICM chip count will be done. Each player will be guaranteed 3rd place money (£9,610) and the remaining £20,290 will be distributed based on chip count. There are 11,025,000 chips in play so every 1m chips will be worth an additional £1,844 to the player.

With 25 minutes remaining on the clock, the 3 remaining players agree to an ICM chip count deal.

The chip counts are as follows:

Anthony Ritchie 4.96m
Thomas Baggaley 3.19m
Gary Banks 2.95m

The calculations are just being confirmed, but Anthony Ritchie being chip leader wins the special Goliath 25/25 event.

On a record breaking week here in Coventry, this special 25/25 Series event during the Goliath smashed the previous record, with 441 entries, generating a massive £88,200 prize pool. With the final table not starting until around 1.40am, there were only 20 minutes of play remaining at 4.45am, when the 3 remaining players agreed a deal based on ICM chip counts.

The deal saw Anthony Ritchie as the chip leader take home £18,705 plus the trophy and the title. Thomas Baggaley took home £15,430 and Gary Banks £14,985. Not too shabby for a £220 investment!

Thank you to all the staff here, especially Jon for taking charge today. Also thanks to all the Goliath event staff here in Coventry.

The next 25/25 Series event will take place next weekend in Portsmouth and I will be here to bring you all the action again.

That’s it from me tonight. Thanks to everyone for following the updates again. I hope you all enjoyed them.

Thanks and good night

Michelle Bennett

Without doubt that was an epic event, an epic Final Day and an EPIC perfromance from you Michelle. That is one long long long shift from 11-30am thru to 5-30am the next day.

A fantastic thread and a fantastic effort on your part. Very well done. :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!: :!:
