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.
The blinds will begin at 500/1,000 with a big blind ante of 1,000 when the action begins for Day 2 at noon EEST. From there, the blind levels will increase every hour. 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.
The 2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown Main Event will likely be the biggest of all time. Last year, the record was set when Kristian Zitting navigated through a field of 286 entries to win the €56,500 top prize.
