The Tallinn Festival is only two weeks away; Starts June 27

Do you wish you could go to a series of poker tournaments and participate in brilliantly structured events in various disciplines and even host a casino games tournament for good measure? If that sounds like something that’s on your street, you need to head to The Festival in Tallinn from June 27.

The Tallinn Festival runs from Jfrom June 27 to July 3 and it is not to be missed. Between these dates, you will find 36 numbered events to get your teeth into, but there is one particularity: not all of these events are traditional poker tournaments. The Festival prides itself on offering something for everyone, so among the packed program you will not only find a wide variety of poker tournament variations and formats, but there are also cash game tournaments, blackjack tournaments, even roulette tournaments, and even sports betting and slot machine competitions. !

Kicking off the Festival in Tallinn on June 27 is the €250 buy-in Special Sviten. Wait until you play Sviten Special if you think pot-limit Omaha is crazy! Very popular in Scandinavian countries, Sviten Special is a cross between five card poker and Five Card PLO; it’s great fun but not for the faint of heart.

Other poker events to look forward to include bounty events, win button, PLO, HORSEreturn, Chinese open face, short bridgeand more!

What sets The Festival apart from other live poker tours is the fact that everyone who loves poker and gambling is catered for. There is a cash game tournament, complete with televised tables, as well as tournaments for popular casino games blackjack and roulette. You can even participate in a slots tournament and a sports betting competition. Having all these different variations under one roof adds value to any tournament because everyone is trying out games they wouldn’t normally play.

The flagship tournament of the Tallinn Festival is the Main eventwhich comes with a €550 buy-in unless you earn your way via one of the many live or online satellites; more on those soon.

The Bratislava Festival Main Event last September drew a crowd of 621 who created a prize pool of €304,245. It ended in a three-way chop between three Austrian grinders. Vedral David finished third for €38,270, Adi Rajkovic was the runner-up and took home €45,130, with Martin Mauthner receiving €47,600 and the title of champion. With the rise of live poker right now, it wouldn’t be surprising to see an even bigger turnout for the Tallinn Main Event.
