During the action-packed poker week, 26 tournaments are scheduled, with the highlights of the festival being €1,000 NLH Main Event and €2,000 NLH Highroller. Players can choose between two different Main Event starting flights, both played out on Thursday, the 20th of August. Day 1A will start at 12:00 with 40,000 chips and 45-minute levels. Day 1B will start at 20:00 with 40,000 chips and 30-minute levels. Both starting flights will be played for 10 levels. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are available until the end of the first level of Day 2. The Main Event final day will be played on the 22nd of August and will be live-streamed.

During the whole festival, you can enjoy 24/7 cash game action (up to 10 tables) at the largest poker room in Estonia.
​You can choose from Texas, Omaha, and various other game formats with blinds ranging from €2/2 up to €10/€20 and higher.
Current Bad Beat Jackpot is close to €30,000, which makes the cash games during the festival even more exciting.

The best participating team will be asserted after the festival

Team Competition is a ranking that will be held during the Tallinn Summer Showdown, during which teams will collect points every time any of the team members cash in a tournament that counts towards the ranking. Every tournament (excluding satellites, Ladies Event, and tournaments that have less than 12 runners) will add 2% of their prize pool towards the Team Competition prize pool. The two teams that have accumulated the most points by the evening of the 23rd of August will receive a share, 75%, and 25% respectively, of the Team Competition prize pool. Last year's Team Competition champions brought home nearly 10,000€!

To participate in the Team Competition, you need to gather up a group of 4 players and register your team. The registration ends on the 21st of August at 13:00.
