After winning, Jeffrey was asked about the event and the overall experience. The player stated that Goliath was primarily all about fun with a minor chance to earn some money for future opportunities.
Jeffrey added that as soon as the payout reached 4,000 pounds, the player started thinking it was huge. The amount kept growing until the player focused more on the game, got the chips, and played naturally.
Since Jeffrey has extensive experience in hyper turbos, the player managed to keep the pressure on the opponents towards the end. It paid off, and the player also got lucky with the cards.
The entire arena was delighted with Jeffrey winning as the player followed Elliott Marais’ win four years ago at the same event.
