WSOPC Tallinn: Summary 17/9
The first day from PokerListings' live coverage from the WSOPC Tallinn is coming to an end! It's been a great first day with lots of entertaining live poker to follow. We've mainly been following two final tables, and during the evening we'll also cover the €555 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw, as well as day 1B of the €350 Texas NLH. Allow me to summarize the first day briefly!
Final Table x2
In the €555, there was a total of 382 entries which resulted in a €183 360 total prize pool. After day 2 which was played yesterday, saturday the 16th, nine players battled against each other in hunt for the WSOPC Ring.
After a couple of hours and some interesting hands, it was Viacheslav Sultanov who was crowned the winner. Except the ring, Viacheslav also took home the 1st place prize of €34 435!
At the table just a couple meters away, the final nine in the €1 100 locked horns. Finland's Aki Pyysing came in as chip-lead and was a big favorite for many to take home the title. He would end up in third place and the Heads Up was played between Santtu Leinonen and Aleksei Smirnov, where it was Aleksi to pull the longest straw and claim the second ring during the WSOPC Tallinn!
The €350 NLH and the €555 Deuce to Seven Triple Draw
