Kings of Tallinn Summer Showdown – A 53 Events Festival in the Baltics!
Sit tight, fasten your seatbelts, and be ready for yet another grand slam live event of the Kings of Tallinn Summer Showdown. As part of the Kings of Tallinn family, the Summer Showdown which knows its 7th edition, consists this time out of ten action-packed poker days. Once again, the event will take place at the glamourous Olympic Park Casino at the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel, right in the middle of the capital of Estonia. This time it will all take place from July 21st until July 30th. We, from PokerListings, are beyond ecstatic about this event, as iconic live reporter Juhani Tyrisevä will be providing our Finnish audience with all updates, analysis and exclusive insights about the event, brought to you by Olympic Casino.
You can look at the history books to it, the event is being visited by poker players and enthusiasts literally from all over the world, with of course, the vast majority of them from nearby Scandinavia and the Baltic countries. All of them, with just one goal; To compete at one of the 53 amazing poker events, as well as the cash games being held around the clock. The previous event of the Kings of Tallinn, back in February, crushed all previous records, having players from over 35 different countries. It was eventually Priit Parmasto who kept the trophy in Estonia, as he managed to win the battle when the last three players concluded a deal and played on for the trophy. Alongside the eternal fame, he bagged a staggering first prize of €97,400, good for almost 100x the initial buy-in of €1,100.
Summer Showdown Schedule
Presumably, the biggest live poker event in Northern Europe, the Kings of Tallinn features tournaments for everyone. Well-known tournament poker director Teresa Nousiainen once again made it happen that the schedule is that well designed, that all feedback of players at previous editions is all being covered. With buy-ins from as low as €60 and all up to €5,000, every poker player is gasping for the official schedule. One of the flagship tournaments this time is the €5,000 One-Day High Roller event. Don’t worry, if that goes beyond your bankroll, there are also options to show your skillset for free, as some satellites will be absolutely free to play.
We all know that players nowadays love to play mixed games more and more, especially the Nordic countries that have a true hunger for formats such as Pot-Limit Omaha, 8-Game, Open Face Chinese, Sviten Special, and many more. Another high-valued tournament will be part of the schedule again in the name of GGPoker Flip&Go Mystery Bounty. This event made its debut during the Kings of Tallinn edition at the beginning of this year and was proven to be extremely popular.
The Main Event
A live event series won’t be a real series if there wasn’t a Main Event. Yet again, the buy-in is set at €1,100. Satellites are already up and running and hosted by Olympic Casino at their venues in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Slovakia. Online satellites are available to you at Olybet Poker. The Main Event, having one-hour blind levels, besides the turbo flight (30-minute levels), will know his first flights on July 26 and 27, followed by three more playing days, before a winner will be crowned. With 30,000 chips starting stack and no limitations on re-entries, it is being promised to be a great show of fireworks. The Main Event days will end every day around 9 PM, leaving enough space for players to enjoy the wonderful evening in Tallinn, or to jump in one of the many side events or activities.
Olympic Entertainment Group Poker Director Christer Larsson said the following when talking about the upcoming event: “The Tallinn Summer Showdown is the most popular poker festival in Northern Europe during the summer as it offers amazing poker action with 53 events designed by world-renowned tournament director Teresa Nousiainen and a fun vibe for both recreational and professional poker players,”
“The festival offers something for everyone thanks to the many different poker formats at a variety of buy-ins, a team competition, cash games running around the clock, and a four-day Main Event that can’t be missed. The weather in Tallinn during the summer is fantastic for players that wish to take a break from the poker action with the sun nearly always shining day and night.”
Who will become the next player in a great Winner’s Hall Of Fame alongside Jukka Koskela, Jargo Alavali, Mathias Siljander, GG-Poker Ambassador Niall Farrell, Kristian Zitting, and Glen Gaines?
