Satellites for EPT Tallinn heating up

June 27, 2011


Consider this. Among the best-preserved old towns in all of Europe sits in Talliin, Estonia on the banks of the Gulf of Finland. Home to the Raekoja plats city square and a tower known as (wait for it…) Fat Margaret, this section of Tallinn draws thousands of tourists every year.

The old town’s name? I’m glad you asked.


Seriously, one of Tallinn’s most-visited sections (also known as Lower Town) is called “All-linn”. While, I have no particular authority on the pronunciation, I think we can all agree it should be pronounced, “All In!” (yes, with the exclamation point).

It should probably come as no surprise, then, that the EPT has chose to once again kick off its season in Tallinn. It is quite literally home to the concept of being All-linn. How could it not be the starting block for another big EPT season?

In a mere 35 days, the EPT will start its engines for another season with a €4,000 + 250 main event in the Estonian capital city. Running August 2-7, the main event will reprise last year’s 400+ player tourney. Last year, Norwegian Kevin Stani won €400,000 for his victory after winning a qualifier on PokerStars.
