Day 2 in Tallinn was full of different activities and exciting poker. We would also like to thank our partners for being here with us – SlotsMillion, Triobet Powered by Betsafe, NordicBet, Guts, Podium North and Casino Olympic.
At 12:30 PM went to the shooting range in Tallinn to try and hit that target. For some, it was the first time to fire a bullet. But there were also some guys with great shooting skills due to their military background. The shooting range was legit and the instructors were super professional, so everybody had great fun firing the bullets.
At 7:30 PM we went to have fancy dinner at restaurant Masha in Tallinn. The restaurant is located near Tallinn harbour, so you can smell the fresh sea air on their terrace when the weather gets warm. It is a cosy and romantic restaurant the aim of which is to give its customers the true experience of Russian hospitality. Masha’s rich menu offers Russian classics, such as home-made pickles and marinated forest mushrooms, handmade dumplings etc. At the same time, they are also offering some Scandinavian dishes, like tender salmon, pocket breads and seafood. Due to Estonian’s history, the local kitchen is influenced by Slavic and Scandinavian kitchen, so Estonians do enjoy Russian and Scandinavian food very much.
Dinner was excellent and there was plenty of food to feed a small army. Everybody was enjoying themselves. The relaxed atmosphere encouraged people to socialize and strike interesting poker conversations.
The first live TV table of the day started at 6 PM local time with pot-limit Omaha €1/€2. Estonian Andres Abakanov was the biggest winner of the first live poker table, taking home about €1,200 in profit.
The second live TV table of the day started at 9 PM local time with €5/€5 no-limit hold’em. Note that the later TV table of the day is always featuring higher stakes than the earlier one. The action at this table was sick and excited some of the most seasoned poker players who thought they had seen it all. The players played aggressively as there were multiple pots on the stream that approached €5,000! Pavel from Lithuania won big, making about €2,800 in the process. On the other hand, Jussi Mattila from Finland lost almost €4,600, before winning some posts later in the stream.
Meanwhile, Triobet Powered by Betsafe was running a give-away during the second stream. One viewer won a free chip set. The drawing was random, so all one had to do was to watch the Cash Game Festival’s Twitch stream and wait for the drawing.
During the Cash Game Festival Tallinn, two €2,000 packages to the Cash Game Festival Gibraltar at Sunborn Casino May 17-21 will be given away. Read more HERE on how to win one.
At about 11 PM, the first Sviten Special game at Tallinn stop started with €2/€2. Some of the regulars, such as Peter La Terra and Niklas Blomqvist from Sweden, were at the table too. Sviten Special poker variation was invented in Sweden, so maybe it helps to have a couple of passionate Swedish players around the table to get more action going. Namely, Sviten Special has a very special place in the Cash Game Festival’s history. This game has been played at every single Cash Game Festival’s stop so far.
At 12 AM, the poker room was filled with good action. At 3 AM there was even one €10/€10 table running. The players were battling around the table and the action was real and loud.
Early morning hours at the casino were welcoming the beginning of day 3 of the Cash Game festival. Let’s see what the day brings.
