2023 WSOP Circuit Tallinn – Key Details
The 2023 WSOP Circuit Tallinn runs from September 14 to 24, with the Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel and Olympic Park Casino playing host to the action. The series features a total of 12 ring events, with over 30 side events also included in the schedule. Apart from that, the venue will also be running cash games 24/7 for the duration of the festival.
The series opens with a €550 No-Limit Hold’em event which has four starting flights running from September 14-15. Day 2 is scheduled for September 16, with the finale taking place on September 17. There are similar events with buy-ins of €350 and €1,100 taking place from September 16-18.
Fans of the popular Mystery Bounty format may take a shot at the €660 Mystery Bounty, a two-day affair scheduled for September 18-19. Also part of the series is the €555 Olybet Online Ring Event.
The main highlight of the festival is the €1,500 buy-in WSOPC Tallinn Main Event which comes with €1 million in guaranteed prize money. Players can enter via four Day 1 flights running from September 19-21, with the final flight adopting a turbo blind structure. Day 2 and Day 3 take place on September 22 and 23 respectively, and the final table plays down to a winner on September 24.
The tournament is expected to attract a huge turnout given the massive success of the previous Main Events hosted by the WSOP, including the record-breaking Main Event in Las Vegas.
The festival’s venue, Olympic Park Casino, is no stranger to hosting major poker events. Recently, it played host to the Kings of Tallinn Summer Showdown. Dubbed the largest poker festival in Northern Europe, the series ran from July 21-30.
