Coolbet Open in Tallinn between 16th and 21st October

This was published 15-10-2018

The second Coolbet Open commenced on Tuesday, 16th and will continue until Sunday, 21st October 2018, hosted by the Olympic Park Casino at the neighbouring Hilton Tallinn Park in the Estonian capital of Tallinn.

The first event that took place in May of this year brought with it a buzz that was felt throughout the entire festival where 27 action-packed tournaments were taking place.  It is anticipated that the current festival will be even more exciting with the schedule expanded to 31 tournaments.

Players can expect the Coolbear to be scurrying around, as it did in May, with players enjoying themselves and laughing throughout the festival.

A large number of notables and Coolbet sponsored players have confirmed that they would be attending the festival, including former footballers Joel Linkpere and Bent Skammelsrud, basketball player Martin Muursepp, Norwegian celebrity Audun Sorseth and singer Kim Herold.

The festival kicked off on 16th October with welcome drinks and entertainment at 7 p.m. EEST and featured four tournaments including the Coolbet €220 WarmUp Event, which awards two seats to the Coolbet €550 Main Event.

The Main Event is due to kick off its two opening flights on 17th and 18th October.  Players start with 30,000 in chips in this deep-stacked affair with blind levels starting at 45 minutes before increasing to 60 minutes in length.

There will be lots of opportunities to build a massive stack not only due to the great structure but thanks to the tournament allowing unlimited re-entries until the end of the first blind level on Day 2 on 19th October.

Those who survive the penultimate day will compete for one final day on 20th October until a winner is crowned.  It is expected that the tournament will be massive with festival organizers estimating a prize pool of not less than €200,000.

In May, Finland’s Sebastian Wahl outlasted a field of 425 entries to win the top prize of €50,100.  He faced a difficult opponent heads-up in Dutch player Sander van Wesemael, who received the runner-up prize of €33,000.

Both Wahl and van Wesemael are back in the Coolbet Open thanks to the top 10 finishers in the Main Event being awarded a Cooolbet Open package over and above the prizes they won.
