2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown Day 2

2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown Day 2


Victor Amat Leads Final 17 in the Tallinn Summer Showdown Main Event 30.07.2022 02:0 by Jason Glatzer

After a long 13 1/2 hour day of 11 blind levels of an hour each, Victor Amat moved to the top of the pack with 1,300,000 in chips to lead the final 17 players heading into the final day of the 2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown €1,100 Main Event.

Amat is one of several players from Spain that for the past few years has called Tallinn their home and is lately often playing all the big festivals at Olympic Park Casino and the adjoining Hilton Tallinn Park. The money bubble lasted more than an hour before Amat delivered a cooler to Andre Magi. Magi committed his stack with queens on the turn with two fours on the eight-high board only to be drawing to one out unsuccessfully with Amat showing queen-four.

Estonia’s Igor Pihela Sr., who plays just about every Main Event at Olympic Park Casino along with his son Igor Pihela Jr., is the only other player entering the final day with a seven-figure stack of 1,153,000. Pihela delivered a huge cooler to Daragh Davey after the money bubble broke in a pot of nearly 1 million in chips. Pihela bet jammed for five times the pot on the flop with king-five suited for a flush draw and got there to leave Davey on fumes when his kings were unable to hold against Pihela’s eventual flush.

Estonia’s Gert Laanemets (850,000) and Latvia’s Juris Hlibovs (776,000) are next on the leaderboard. All four of the top players will start the final day at the same table. However, once one player is eliminated there will be an early table redraw tomorrow with two tables of eight players each. Meanwhile, Lithuania’s Paulius Jucys (553,000) also cracked the top five on the end-of-Day 2 leaderboard.

Final Day Seat Assignments

There will be no table redraw to start the day as one will take place soon after with 17 players remaining at the eight-max tables. The live stream will begin once the final table of nine players is established when one last redraw will take place. Here is a look at the seat assignments to start the final day:

Action on Day 2

The two opening flights on Thursday attracted 248 entries of which 131 players bagged into Day 2. Another 37 entries were added during the first blind level of Day 2, after which late registration closed with a final field of 285 entries for a €267,900 prize pool.

A total of 133 players remained at this point and the eliminations early on were taking place at a fast and furious pace with just 34 players scheduled to take home at least a min-cash of €2,100. This was close to the record-setting Tallinn Summer Showdown Main Event that took place last summer when Kristian Zitting defeated a field of 286 entries to win the €56,500 top prize.

The action slowed down significantly near the money bubble and nearly came to a halt of the action money bubble before Andre Magi became the final player in the Main Event to go home without a payday.

Emmi Juutilainen became the last woman standing finishing in 16th place when her ace-queen didn’t win a flip against jacks. However, ace-queen was still Juutilainen’s hand. For a short while, she was at the same table as her husband Henri Juutilainen, who found a bag of 378,000 in chips for the final day.

The duo tangled it up in what might be described as an unavoidable spot. Emmi jammed for 15 big blinds with ace-queen suited and was called by Henri with aces before the money. Perhaps in some households, this would be a recipe for disaster but the duo shared they play each other as they would anyone else when at the same table. That being said, Emmi celebrated in delight after she nailed a flush to double through Henri.

Main Event Payouts

The final 17 players have locked up at least €2,400 with payouts going up big and fast with tomorrow’s winner slated to be rewarded a whopping €62,400 top prize along with the coveted Main Event trophy. Here is a look at all of the Main Event payouts:

Pihela Sr. Wins a Flip to Eliminate Kucheria 30.07.2022 00:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 19: 5,000/10,000 (10,000)
Entries: 17/285

Igor Pihela Sr. is a chip millionaire after ousting Kshitij Kucheria in 18th place.

Gert Laanemets opened for 20,000 from late position. Pihela called from the small blind before Kshitij Kucheria three-bet jammed for 242,000 from the big blind. Laanemets folded and Pihela called.

Kshitij Kucheria: 7 7
Igor Pihela Sr.: A K

“I was worried that you were going to be the one that called,” Kucheria said to Laanemets in surprise that it was Pihela that found the call.

Pihela won the flip but not until his ace paired at the end of the 2 9 10 8 A board. Day 2 will end the sooner of one more elimination or the 25 minutes remaining on the clock of Level 19.

Igor Pihela Sr. – 1.3 million
Kshitij Kucheria – 0

End of the Line for Daragh Davey 30.07.2022 00:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 19: 5,000/10,000 (10,000)
Entries: 18/285

Daragh Davey had a heck of a run and if not for Igor Pihela Sr. delivering a bad beat for a monster pot about 20 minutes ago, he would be cruising high. Fate had something else in mind for Davey though and he was down to 91,000 when he jammed ten-jack suited. Gytis Lazauninkas, who has been among the short stacks a good part of the day, called with ace-five suited and held after hitting two pair on the A-Q-T-5-4 double-suited board.

Also recently hitting the rail were Alex Lianes, Paulius Vaitiekunas, and Nicolas Courbin to leave 18 remaining in the field.

Gytis Lazauninkas – 250,000

Mukans Nails a Flush but Loses to Laursoo’s Quads 29.07.2022 23:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 19: 5,000/10,000 (10,000)
Entries: 22/285

Sandris Mukans jammed for 100,000 and was called by Kaspar Laursoo.

Sandris Mukans: A Q
Kaspar Laursoo: 9 9

Laursoo flopped a set on the J 9 7 flop but Mukans had a flush draw. Mukans completed the flush draw on the 5 turn. But Mukans didn’t stay ahead long as Laursoo hit quad nines on the 9 river to win the hand to eliminate Mukans in 23rd place.

Kaspar Laursoo – 250,000
Sandris Mukans – 0

Entries: 23/285

Frode Alfredsen opened for 20,000 from the hijack before he called a three-bet jam to about 50,000 by Mathias Christensen from the big blind.

Mathias Christensen: 10 5
Frode Alfredsen: K Q

Christensen was behind and said “good game” to his table after the K 4 J K Q board gave his opponent a full house to leave just 23 players remaining.

Frode Alfredsen – 500,000

Davey Gains Some Breathing Room 29.07.2022 23:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries: 25/285

Daragh Davey jammed his remaining stack of 54,000 with ace-jack from the small blind and was up against the ace-ten held by Kaspar Laursoo. The board ran clean for Davey this time to get back up to 116,000 in chips, while Laursoo had about 200,000 after the hand.

Meanwhile, Emmi Juutilainen became the best performing lady in the Main Event with her run ending in 26th place while Sam Lau and Tomi Bondarew also hit the rail.

Pihela Sr. Delivers Bad Beat to Davey 29.07.2022 23:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries: 28/285

Igor Pihela Sr. jammed for 386,000 into a pot of just 70,000 10 8 3 and was called by Daragh Davey for perhaps the biggest pot of the day thus far.

Igor Pihela Sr.: K 5
Daragh Davey: K K

Pihela Sr. blanked the 6 turn but the J river gave him the flush to double up and leave Davey short after delivering a bad beat.

Igor Pihela Sr. – 900,000

Courbin’s Tens Too Strong for Lehtinen to Survive 29.07.2022 23:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries: 30/285

Eero Lehtinen ran his short stack with ace-four into the tens of Nicolas Courbin. The board ran dry and Lehtinen was ousted in 32nd place.

Shortly after, Audrius Laimelis lost the handful of big blinds he had remaining and the action was down to 30 players.

Andre Magi Bubbles Main Event 29.07.2022 22:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)
Entries 32/285

Victor Amat checked the 4 4 2 8 board before Andre Mägi jammed for about 100,000 into a pot of about the same. Amat made the call and the cards were turned over.

Andre Mägi: Q Q
Victor Amat: Q 4

It was a bit of a cooler for Magi who was drawing to just one out. That out didn’t come with the 6 completing the board on the river for Magi to hit the rail on the bubble in 35th place. All the players were in the money after the hand including Zakhar Galper and Justina Andriukeviciute, who was nursing a short-stack for more than an hour.

This makes Emmi Juutilainen the last female player remaining in the Main Event.

Nines Full for Nevalainen 29.07.2022 22:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 18: 4,000/8,000 (8,000)

Janne Nevalainen opened for 16,000 from early position and was called by Thomas Jakobsen from the big blind.

Jakobsen check-called for 15,000 after the 4 K 4 came on the flop. Both players checked the 6 turn before Jakobsen fired out for 34,000 on the 9 river. Nevalainen jacked it up to 125,000 and Jackobsen went into the tank before he called.

Nevalainen turned over 9 9 for a rivered full house and won a big pot on the money bubble after Jakobsen mucked his cards.

Thomas Jakobsen – 620,000
Janne Nevalainen – 450,000

Final Two Levels 29.07.2022 22:0 by Jason Glatzer

It was just announced before the restart of play that Day 2 will play two more levels or down to 16 players, whichever comes first. This means, that the latest today will end is 1:30 a.m.

The action resumed hand-for-hand on the money bubble with 35 players remaining.

Last Hand Before Break 29.07.2022 22:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 17: 3,000/6,000 (6,000)
Entries: 35/285

Hand-For-Hand on the Money Bubble After Andersson Eliminates Liszewski 29.07.2022 21:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 17: 3,000/6,000 (6,000)
Entries: 35/285

Mikael Andersson three-bet jammed his massive stack from the button and was called off by Arkadiusz Liszewski from the small blind for about 10 big blinds.

Arkadiusz Liszewski: A Q
Mikael Andersson: J J

The 4 7 [6 2 2 board didn’t help Liszewski while Andersson was back at around 500,000 on the money bubble.

Lianes Pulls Ahead of Courbins Queens 29.07.2022 21:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 17: 3,000/6,000 (6,000)
Entries: 36/285

A player opened from early position for 13,000 before Alex Lianes three-bet jammed for 109,000 from the cutoff. Nicolas Courbin cold-called from the big blind and the original opener folded their hand.

Alex Lianes: A J
Nicolas Courbin: Q Q

Lianes quietly celebrated with his small rail after he improved to two pair to get ahead of queens with the 7 8 J 3 A rolling out on the board.

Alex Lianes – 250,000
Nicolas Courbin – 150,000

Level 16: 2,000/5,000 (5,000)
Entries: 36/285

The action is two away from the money bubble after Victor Amat eliminated Emil Heikkinen. Heikkinen had his last 10 big blinds in with A 9 and was up against Amat’s K Q .

Heikkinen shouted a curse in frustration after Amat paired up on the 4 K 10 flop. Neither the 8 turn nor the 4 river saved Heikkinen and he was eliminated in 37th place.

Also recently eliminated were Anders Ringstad Mora and Antti Tuomi.

Victor Amat – 475,000
Emil Heikkinen – 0
Anders Ringstad Mora – 0
Antti Tuomi – 0

Davey Ousts Sandvik 29.07.2022 20:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 16: 2,000/5,000 (5,000)
Entries: 39/285

Daragh Davey’s stack just grew by leaps and bounds in a hand that eliminated WSOP Europe 8-Game bracelet winner Espen Sandvik.

Sandvik opened to 10,000 with ace-seven suited from the cutoff before Davey three-bet to 38,000 with queens from the small blind. Sandvik ripped it in with a four-bet to 140,000 and Davey called. The board ran clean for Davey and he was up to 380,000 after the hand while sending Sandvik to the rail.

Alfredsen Ousts Berndtson 29.07.2022 20:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 16: 2,000/5,000 (5,000)
Entries: 39/285

Henri Juutilainen opened for 11,000 from the hijack and was called by Frode Alfredsen. Touko Berndtson jammed for about 90,000 from the big blind. Juutilainen folded and Alfredsen called.

Touko Berndtson: K J
Frode Alfredsen: A J

Alfredsen was eliminated in 40th place after getting no love on the 10 8 A 3 5 runout. Kasparas Klezys and Matias Knaapinen were both eliminated just before to leave 39 players in the field and close to the money with 34 players getting paid.

Frode Alfredsen – 425,000
Henri Juutilainen – 210,000
Touko Berndtson – 0

Juutilainen Cracks Juutilainen’s Rockets 29.07.2022 20:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 16: 2,000/5,000 (5,000)
Entries: 42/285

The title is not a typo as both a husband and wife are at the same table at Table 8 in Emmi and Henri Juutilainen.

Emmi jammed for 15 big blinds and was at risk to be eliminated by her husband after she was called by Henri.

Emmi Juutilainen: A Q
Henri Juuilainen: A A

There could have been some issues away from the tables if Henri’s aces held. But instead, Emmi exploded in joy after she improved to a flush to crack Henri’s rockets after the 8 K 10 J J rolled out on the board. Meanwhile, Day 1a chip leader Tonis Viik and WSOP Europe bracelet winner Espen Sandvik have both been ousted since the dinner break.

Henri Juutilaianen – 190,000
Emmi Juutilainen – 130,000

Earlier in the day, Patrisha Rimfire sat down with both Emmi and Henri for a chat. Check it out below.

Level 15: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Entries: 51/285

Glen Gaines opened for 8,500 from under the gun. Kasparas Klezys called from the hijack before Emmi Juutilainen three-bet jammed for 43,500 from the cutoff. Gaines snap-folded and Klezys found a call.

Emmi Juutilainen: A A
Kasparas Klezys: Q J

“I’m going to hit a royal,” Klezys said.

Juutilainen may have believed her opponent as she stood up and looked ready to go despite holding the dominating hand.

The rockets held to give Juutilainen some breathing room after the 8 turn and the J river completed the board. Shortly after, Deividas Kvaselis hit the rail to leave 51 players remaining.

Emmi Juutilaianen – 106,000

Davey Doubles Through Sootla 29.07.2022 18:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 15: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Entries: 52/285

Daragh Davey opened from the cutoff for 8,000 and was called by Ranno Sootla from the small blind. Sootla check-raised the ten-seven-four flop with two spades from 8,000 to 26,000. Davey jammed for 83,000 and Sootla called.

Sootla was ahead with queen-ten against jack-ten. To make matters worse for Davey, his opponent also held two spades in his hand leaving Davey down to two outs. A blank hit the turn with a red jack coming on the river to give Davey his miracle to stay alive and double his stack.

Daragh Davey – 190,000

Two Ladies Remaining in the Main Event 29.07.2022 18:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 15: 2,000/4,000 (4,000)
Entries: 52/285

There are two ladies remaining in the Main Event. Emmi Juutilainen needs a little help as she is down to about 50,000 in chips, while Justina Andriukeviciute is doing a bit better with a stack of around 130,000 in chips.

The blind level went up and Roope Tarmi was eliminated at the feature table just before this occurred to leave 52 players remaining.

The one-hour dinner break is scheduled for the end of this blind level. This will also be when the live stream ends for the day, allowing for the bubble to be played out all in the same room.

Full House for Juutilainen to Oust Alen 29.07.2022 17:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 14: 1,500/3,000
Entries: 53/285

Johan Alen had slightly more than 10 big blinds when he jammed A 7 and was up against the A 10 held by Henri Juutilainen.

The K 10 K 10 5 board would normally produce a chop when two players get it in with an ace. However, Juutilainen held a ten for a full house to eliminate Alen and have his stack soar to close to 300,000 in chips.

Meanwhile, Vili Värtinen hit the rail shortly after to leave just 53 players remaining in the field.

Nevalainen Ousts Zaragoza 29.07.2022 17:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 14: 1,500/3,000 (3,000)
Entries: 56/285

Janne Nevalainen with A Q for top air and Jose Zaragoza with K 10 for a flush draw, an overcard, and some backdoors were all in on a pot of around 150,000 with the Q 7 5 on the flop.

Neither the 10 turn nor the 2 river pushed Zaragoza ahead and he hit the rail. Nevalainen was at around 350,000 after the hand. This isn’t the chip lead as Mikael Andersson has around 425,000 in his stack.

At around the same time, there won’t be a Cinderella story for Henrik Tellving as he lost his final big blind at around the same time.

Tellving on Fumes 29.07.2022 17:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 14: 1,500/3,000 (3,000)
Entries: 57/285

Henrik Tellving and Egidijus Digrys had similar stacks of around 20 big blinds when they tangled up in a pot.

Egidijus Digrys: A K
Henrik Tellving: A J

Digrys’ big slick hit Broadway J Q 5 2 10 board and the dealer began counting the stack. Tellving had his opponent covered by 3,000 and said, “So there Is still a chance.”

Egidijus Digrys – 140,000
Henrik Tellving – 3,000

“Patrik Junior” Triples His Short Stack 29.07.2022 17:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 14: 1,500/3,000 (3,000)
Entries: 62/285

Elias Suhonen was just referred to as “Patrik Junior” by local hero Ranno Sootla. Sootla was most likely referencing the Finnish poker legend Patrik Antonius, but we will need to confirm this later. The next hand, Suhonen jammed for about five big blinds from early position. Dangiras Kuzulis called from one seat over as did Sam Lau from the big blind.

Both Lau and Kuzulis checked the K 8 4 flop and Lau also checked the 5 turn. Kuzulis bet 6,000 and Lau called. Both players checked down the 6 river, which put four hearts on the board.

None of the three players showed any hearts when the cards were turned over. Suhonen managed to triple his stack by rivering a straight with A 7 . Meanwhile, Kuzulis won the small side pot when his Q Q was good against Lau’s A 6 .

Sam Lau – 200,000
Dangiras Kuzulis – 150,000
Elias Suhonen – 50,000

Vllaznin Dida committed his nine big blinds against Gytis Lazauninkas.

Vllaznin Dida: Q 7
Gytis Lazauninkas: K Q

The 4 3 Q J 10 ran out on the board to give both players a pair of queens. Lazauninkas held the better kicker to win the hand and eliminate Dida who wished his table a good game on the way out the door.

Gytis Lazauninkas – 130,000

Sootla So Good That He Doesn’t Have to Show His Hand at Showdown 29.07.2022 16:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 13: 1,000/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 64/285

Elias Suhonen got his hand caught in the cookie jar when he overbet a pot by firing out 30,000 with the K 2 9 5 Q on the board.

Ranno Sootla paused for a moment before he called. Suhonen opted to not even show his cards and immediately tossed them into the muck to give the Estonian poker legend Sootla a pot at showdown without even needing to show his cards.

Shortly after this hand, players went on a 20-minute break.

Ranno Sootla – 170,000

Level 13: 1,000/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 67/285

Victor Amat opened for 5,000 from the cutoff and was called by Henri Juutilainen from the button and Adria Comas I Roura from the small blind. Tatjana Vinogradova three-bet jammed for 59,500. Amat looked in pain and tank-folded. Juttilainen called and Comas I Roura folded.

Tatjana Vinogradova: A 9
Henri Juutilainen: 10 10

Juutilainen was ahead and eventually improved to a full house on the J J 8 6 10 runout to eliminate Vinogradova. While Juutilainen did eliminate one woman, another closer to his life is still alive and kicking in his wife Emmi Juutilainen, who is sitting on about 82,000 in chips.

Henri Juutilainen – 235,000

“What a Sweat” 29.07.2022 16:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 13: 1,000/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 69/285

Oskar Ojaveer opened the button for 5,000 before Janne Nevalainen three-bet to 21,000 before Ojaveer four-bet jammed for 52,000. Nevalainen wasted no time in making the call and Ojaveer was at risk.

Oskar Ojaveer: A K
Janne Nevalainen: K 9

Nevalainen was behind but pulled ahead giving Ojaveer some worries he would hit the rail after the 8 10 9 flop. However, the Q turn and the J river improved Ojaveer to Broadway. So, instead of hitting the rail, he doubled his stack.

“What a sweat,” Ojaveer said to the table with a big smile.

Meanwhile, during the next hand at the same table, Kimmo Kurko lost his short stack when his ace-five didn’t get there against ace-nine.

Janne Nevalainen – 220,000
Oskar Ojaveer – 110,000

Ruuska Pays Off Juutilainen 29.07.2022 15:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 13: 1,000/2,500 (2,500)
Entries: 73/285

Just before the blinds went up, Timo Ruuska checked with about 50,000 in the pot and the 7 A 5 J Q on the board. Henri Juutilainen jammed for about 65,000 and Ruuska went into the tank for more than five minutes, during which time the blinds went up.

Ruuska was chatting in Finnish to Juutilainen and then later to himself and back to Juutilainen again. Eventually, the clock was called and Ruuska found a call.

Ruuska muttered in frustration after Juutilainen turned over K 7 for a flush.

“I don’t have to show,” said Ruuska as he began to count out the chips he owed to his opponent.

The floor told him he had to show, and he turned over A 3 . Straight after, the table broke and players were assigned new seats.

Henri Juutilainen – 180,000

Entries: 79/285

Emil Heikkinen three-bet jammed for about 15 big blinds. Jimmy Dewerdt called off his stack of a little less and Anders Ringstad Mora, who was the original player to open, called as well.

Jimmy Dewerdt: A 6
Emil Heikkinen: A A
Anders Ringstad Mora: K K

Heikkinen loudly celebrated after his rockets held against cowboys and a suited ace on the 5 6 Q 7 3 runout to effectively triple his stack while sending Dewerdt to the rail.

Emil Heikkinen – 95,000
Anders Ringstad Mora – 75,000
Jimmy Dewerdt – 0

Entries: 90/285

We caught up with the hand when Tony Ojala had his stack of around 100,000 committed with A A and was up against the 10 10 held by Kshitij Kucheria.

The board ran clean for Ojala to double near the chip lead. Meanwhile, Kucheria still has a healthy stack despite losing more than one-third of it.

Short Stacks Battling on Table 6 29.07.2022 14:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 11: 800/1,600 (1,600)
Entries: 96/185

Table 6 has a bunch of short stacks including one of our favorites in Anne Bezdek, who is always coming to the big festivals in Tallinn from her home in Finland with 37,000. There are a couple of stacks shorter than Bezdek in Kaspars Kazaks and Jimmy Dewerdt on that table.

During a recent hand, the short stacks collided after Kaspars Kazaks jammed from middle position with 11,000 over an early position opener. Jimmy Dewerdt rejammed for about 36,000 and it was a heads-up showdown after the original opener folded.

Kaspars Kazaks: 7 5
Jimmy Dewerdt: K Q

Dewerdt was in a good position to add chips but the 9 8 5 4 4 runout had something else in mind. Dewerdt appeared to be in disbelief either about Kazaks’ jam or that he was unable to hold or both.

Anne Bezdek – 37,000
Kaspars Kazaks – 25,000
Jimmy Dewerdt – 25,000

Entries: 101/285

Henrik Tellving bet 6,200 into a pot of 20,500 with the 2 9 Q 6 on the board after the turn. Mantas Bagocius jammed for 29,000 and Tellving looked to be visibly in pain as he tanked for a few minutes. Eventually, Tellving called.

Mantas Bagocius: A K
Henrik Tellving: 10 8

“I lost some of my outs,” Tellving commented.

A blank 5 completed the board on the river and Bagocius managed to double his stack with ace-high.

Mantas Bagocius – 80,000
Henrik Tellving – 60,000

Level 11: 800/1,600
Entries: 111/285

Daragh Davey was at more than 100,000 at the break but was down to 70,000 before he doubled with blinds still at 600/1,200 as follows:

A player opened from under the gun for 2,500. Davey three-bet to 6,500 from the blinds before he called a four-bet to 14,800. Davey check-called a bet of 17,300 on the 9 4 2 flop.

A nine paired the turn. Davey checked again and his opponent fired out for 21,000 with about 10,000 behind. Davey tanks for a bit before he jams. His opponent called and Davey breathed a sigh of relief. Davey held queens with no heart but his opponent didn’t have a heart either as he had a lower pair with tens. A blank seven completed the board on the river for Davey to double up.

Daragh Davey – 140,000

No Repeat Champion as Zitting Hit the Rail 29.07.2022 13:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 10: 600/1,200 (1,200)
Entires: 121/185

Kristian Zitting won last year’s Summer Showdown Main Event for €56,500. That event attracted a record 286 entries with this year’s Main Event coming up one short.

Zitting shared with PokerListings that he got it in with two pair but was beat by a better two pair.

A funny story took place last night with Zitting who was deep in the €550 SSD but also playing at the same time online. He didn’t notice an under-the-gun open and thought it folded around to him in the big blind. He flashed the table his pocket kings and the floor was called over. He was told he could either fold or play his hand. He opted to play and got his opponent to fold tens.

Also during this event, Zitting shared he was heads-up in a $250 buy-in tournament. He was in a spot near the bubble of the €550 SSD and was unable to pay attention to his online event and got blinded out by his opponent. He still managed to collect around $5,000 in that event, which will cover a few buy-ins today.

Entries: 119/285

Aleksei Vandyshev had his stack committed with jacks and was up against the ace-jack held by Vytautas Semaška for what appeared to be a pot north of 50,000 in chips.

Semaskaka held the ace of spade and delivered a bad beat to Vandyshev to eliminate his opponent from the Main Event after four spades ran out on the board to give him the nut flush.

Vytautas Semaška – 120,000
Aleksei Vandyshev – 0

Entries: 132/276

Victor Amat bet 15,000 into a pot of around 25,000 with the 7 6 9 A 10 on the board before Justina Andriukeviciute jammed for about 65,000. Amat had a little less and made the call after pausing for a minute.

Andriukeviciute turned over A 4 for the nut flush. Amat tried to muck his hand as he walked away but as it was an all-in situation, the dealer turned over his hand to show the J 8 for a lesser flush.

Justina Andriukeviciute – 135,000

Level 9: 500/1,000 (1,000)
Entries: 135/275

Evy Albrigtsen opened for 2,200 and was called by Aistis Sandaras. Albrigtsen bet 6,000 on the 4 3 5 flop and Sandaras called. Another bet of 6,500 followed by Albrightsen on the J turn and Sandaras called again.

The 8 river completed the board. Albrightsen bet 6,500 with about 24,000 behind. Sandaras tanked for a couple of minutes before he jammed. Albrigtsen paused for about 30 seconds before she made the sigh-call.

Albrightsen turned over A J for top pair but got rivered by Sandaras who nailed a set of snowmen with 8 8 to win the hand. While Evy won’t be re-entering, her husband Ronnie is doing quite well with a stack of 75,500.

Gytis Lazauninkas lost his stack he came into the day with and was reseated with 30,000 in chips at Table 1 after he re-entered. Almost immediately he got into the action and nearly doubled his starting stack at the expense of sending Alex Lianes to the rail as follows.

Lazauninkas opened for 2,500 from the hijack before he called a three-bet jam by Lianes from the cutoff for about 25,000.

Alex Lianes: A Q
Gytis Lazauninkas: K Q

Lianes was ahead but not for long after Lazauninkas connected his king n the K 10 2 flop. Lazauninkas improved to two pair on the Q turn and won the hand after the blank 8 river completed the board. Lianes re-entered after his bad beat.

Sattanen Forces Mahonen to Re-Enter 29.07.2022 11:0 by Jason Glatzer

Level 9: 500/1,000 (1,000)
Entries: 140/261

Martin Zobel opened from under the gun before Jari Mähönen three-bet jammed for close to 40 big blinds with nines. Teemu Sattanen looked Mahonen up from the blinds with big slick and Zobel got out of the way.

The flop ran clean for Mahonen but a king spiked the turn and Mahonen opted to re-enter for a fresh stack of 30,000 in chips after the hand.

Teemu Sattanen – 135,000
Jari Mahonen – 30,000

Welcome back to our coverage of the 2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown €1,100 Main Event at Olympic Park Casino and the Hilton Tallinn Park.

The two opening flights attracted a total of 246 entries with 131 players finding bags to Day 2. This figure will grow a bit more with late registration still open for the first blind level of Day 2 where unlimited re-entries will still be allowed.

The first opening flight witnessed a banner field of 209 entries with 108 survivors led by Estonia’s Tonis Viik who bagged a whopping 214,000 in chips on Day 1a from his initial stack of 30,000 to put him in the overall chip lead.

Last night’s Day 1b was a turbo-charged affair with 30-minute blinds instead of the hour blinds the rest of the tournament features. This field attracted 37 entries with 23 players surviving with Juho Heiska bagging 107,500.

A dinner break will be inserted into today’s schedule with the plan to play down to the final two tables or even the final table depending on the pace of play.
