The attention of the poker community is on the World Series of Poker 2022 in Las Vegas, and rightly so, but there is an epic poker and gaming festival on the doorstep of European players that simply cannot be missed: Tallinn Festival to Olympic Park Casino.

Martin “Franke” de Zweigbergk is a smart man who loves poker and everything related to the game. Franke watched other poker festivals and saw that there was something missing at all of them. He realized that not only do many poker players enjoy the odd sports bet or a few spins of roulette, but the opposite is true; casino players and sports bettors like to play poker occasionally. Franke decided to bring them together under one roof, and the Festival was born.

After a huge success debut in BratislavaThe Festival travels to Tallinn, Estonia, from From June 27 to July 3 and brings with it nearly 40 events. While players will find several No-Limit Hold’em tournaments, they can also try their luck at Pot-Limit Omaha, Win the Button, 8-Game Mix, Open Face Chinese Poker, HORSE and the crazy game that is Sviten Special . If you’ve never played Sviten Special, it’s a cross between five-card PLO and five-card draw; it’s a crazy game that generates a lot of action.

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.

As mentioned earlier, Franke created The Festival as a way to bring all forms of gambling and poker together under one roof, which is why anyone visiting Tallinn is spoiled for choice when visiting. acts of events to play.

Cash game players are well served with the Gambling Festival Challenge, which offers TV tables if you fancy some time in the spotlight. Then there are casino game tournaments for black jack and roulette, which are not only a great way to try and win some money, but the perfect setting for people wanting to try these games for the first time, as you can only lose a specific amount of money; although hopefully you will win.

There is even a sports betting tournament if you feel like showing off your betting skills and sports knowledge.
