The World Series of Poker Circuit seems to be putting the “World” in their name like never before. The newest stop on the well-known tour brings Circuit events to Northern Europe for the first time.
An 11-day festival heads to Tallinn, Estonia at the luxurious Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel and Olympic Park Casino from September 14-24. A total of 12 rings will be given away amidst a packed schedule that features something for everyone.
Multiple variants, buy-in levels, and satellites
With 12 rings up for grabs, it’s certainly enticing to ring-chase during the full schedule. In those 11 days, 52 events will take place, making good planning essential to make the most of the trip.
The headliner is the €1,500 WSOPC Tallinn Main Event that runs from September 19-24 and boasts a €1 million guarantee.
Bounty lovers will love the schedule since there are two different Mystery Bounties and two different Progressive Bounties in play to satiate the knock-out hunters in the field. Watch out for Greg Goes All In, though, that guy takes bounties seriously.
Mixed-game enthusiasts will have their hands full, too; they’ll find events we don’t always see on WSOP schedules. In addition to PLO, H.O.R.S.E., and 8-game tournaments; there are Open Face Chinese Pineapple, Pot-Limit 2-7 Triple Draw, Pot-Limit Finnish 5 Card Stud events, and more.
If you’re looking to get into one of the biggest events on a budget, there will be plenty of satellites running throughout the festival. The majority of them are between €60 and €150. There’s even a free NLH ladies-only satellite to the Queens of Tallinn event.
If tournaments don’t go your way, there are plenty of cash games running around the clock. From low-stakes to nosebleed action; expect the tables to be full as poker players flock to the casino for the first WSOP Circuit.
Estonia: A beautiful country for a poker festival
If you don’t know much about Estonia, it’s a fantastic place to vacation as well, if you’re looking to relax or sightsee when not at the tables.
The Baltic country; situated near Finland, Sweden, and Russia, is known for its spacious, green, lush land. Tallinn, its capital city, is an area that prides itself on cultural activities, tourism, and historical sites. With some travel, you can also explore some of the 2,000-plus islands and inlets in the area.
