We have once again reached the bagging and tagging stage of an eventful day in the Main Event, wherein we saw registration close after Level 12 with a total of 552 entries, the money reached at 71 places with the demise of Peter Nordin on the bubble, and the field further whittled down to just 30 players.
When they return to the Hilton Tallinn Park tomorrow at noon, under the aegis of Olympic Casino, Agris Noviks will be the man to beat on 1,595,000 in chips. There’s a world of difference between the €1,730 on offer for 30th place and the €56,100 on offer for first place though, so it might be worth taking it a little easy at the player party that is allegedly taking place right now. Or not – one could argue that’s a win either way.
Elsewhere in the building, the side events rage on. Following the conclusion of the Blackjack and Roulette events last night (respectively won by Marek Kotelnikov for €2,372 and Johan Palokangas for €1,548 after a six-way deal), tonight is the turn of the Matching Visions Slots Championship – good luck to all the players who are right now coughing up their €250 buy-ins to that. Also underway are the €1,050 NLH High Roller with 20 entries so far, as well as the €250 Pokerlistings Deepstack (249 entries and counting) and the €330 Open Face Chinese (37 entries). The livestream continues into the night as well, currently featuring some sort of Cash Game Challenge affair involving Ylva Thorsrud at the table and George Sandford on the comms.
Tomorrow’s schedule is equally packed, what with the Gambling Cabin Sportsbook tournaments kicking off at 1pm, the €600 Team Poker Event at 2pm, and the €330 Heads Up at 4pm, as well as a PLO Turbo at 8pm and all sorts of other shenanigans. We’ll be back here from noon bringing you all the action, both on the felt and off. Until then, 🍻.
