Thursday at the Olympic Park Casino and Hilton Tallinn Park Hotel was full of action. The OlyBet Holiday Special Main Event day 1C witnessed a solid turnout of 107 entries, while four side events were played down to the winner.
€550 buy-in Main Event day1C started at noon and attracted 107 entries, with 43 players advancing to the second day. Estonian Taago Tamm bagged 180,000, while Lithuania’s Robertas Smolskis finished with 161,700. Eleven contenders managed to gather six-digit stacks. You can find a complete end-of-1C list here.
The Main Event so far saw 189 entries. 79 players have secured seats in the second leg of the competition, which starts Friday at noon. Late registration will stay open during the first level of day2, so it is fair to expect that the final entry number will go north of 200.
