Am I reading this correctly... You have both day 1 "turbo" flights and day 1 "standard" flights for the same Big Low Roller tourney? Seems interesting.

Thanks Chris
Less mixed games than expected (too bad...) but nice to see affordable 6-max NLH events
Overall a good schedule with tournaments for every player

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Thanks Chris. Way cool to see an 1100 Big O event since the WSOP still doesn't have a dedicated BigO tourney (closest is an O8 mix on Jun 16). And for me it's nice because it's only a couple days removed from a dedicated 2-7TD. Both are nicely placed to correspond to similar events at WSOP - 2-7TD the day before WSOP's, and BigO the day before WSOP's O8 mix. I think I might need to plan my Vegas trips differently this summer so I can hit these.

Thanks for taking on feedback and accommodating player requests where possible Chris. And particular thanks for adding a 2-7 TD event - I will definitely support that again this year.

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Good decision to move the $600 in early June back a day. Now you're not directly competing with either the Venetian $1100 or $600 events and actually fit in nicely between.

I do feel like the placement of your second 1MM gty tourney is a bit questionable, but I guess we'll have to see. I think you would have been better off putting this where you have the 500K gtd tourney starting on the 24th. There's not much that would compete with a $700 1MM gty tourney in that timeframe.

Nice to see the mixed game events a day before WSOP. Looking forward to playing the first 10 days. How accelerated is the structure in event #8? Also is the dealer's choice the same games as in the WSOP? Lastly how many handed are the dealer's choice and mixed triple events played?

Big thanks for the $1100 big O tourney. You will get alot of hilo players for that one because of the wsop mix O/8.

Thanks for 1100 Big O (and also 600 PLO8, although at same time as 360 Big O at Nugget).

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Hi Chris. The schedule looks great as always. Question: How do you handle taxation of winnings, and in particular for non US players. Is there still no tax <5K in winnings? Can an ITIN be provided on the spot in case a non US resident is lucky enough to win big enough for taxes to be withdrawn? Thanks in advance for your reply.

We are happy to assist with an ITIN on the spot!

Looking to be roughly a 6 - 8 hour tourney, maybe a bit less depending on player count

Same as WSOP

DC is 6 handed

Mixed trips probably 6 handed as well

Re: Phamous Poker Series GOLIATH 2018 FINAL

Trying to get my schedule worked out and have a question.

On 6/28 and 6/29 you have a Low Roller tournament for $250 buy in. It says it restarts 6/30. Is that the final day.

Reason I ask is because on 7/2, 7/3, 7/4 you have another Low Roller with restart on 7/5. Is this a different tournament or a continuation of the one on 6/28.

I am entering some of the bigger tournaments but am looking for some low buy-ins on days im not in a bigger one.

No heads up tournaments? Disappointed about that for sure
