Europe will have its first-ever ladies-only poker festival this November!

The inaugural Queens of Tallinn takes place from November 30 to December 3 at the Olympic Park Casino and Hilton Tallinn Park, featuring 11 events, 10 of which are exclusive to female players.

The festival is organized by OlyBet and renowned tournament director Teresa Nousianen who also founded the popular Kings of Tallinn festival.

Queens of Tallinn – Key Details & Highlights

The Queens of Tallinn festival is headlined by a €350 Main Event which gets underway on December 1. The tournament features three Day 1 flights, with the final one adopting a turbo structure. Players begin the action with a 30,000-chip stack played to 40-minute levels for the first two flights and 20 minutes for Day 1C.

The women participants are allowed unlimited re-entries for the first eight levels on each Day 1. They may also re-enter until level 2 of Day 2. Day 1 survivors resume the action on Day 2 on December 2, with the winner set to be crowned on December 3. The action will be livestreamed by the OlyBet team from Day 2 through to the crowning of the winner.

The venue will also be hosting €40 mega satellite and free buy-in satellite to the Main Event on November 30 and December 1, allowing female players to secure a seat into the tournament for a more affordable price.

The Queens of Tallinn schedule also includes a €250 Mystery Bounty which runs from December 2-3, with a €100 NLHE Deep Stack, €60 NLHE/PLO Mix, €70 NLHE Turbo and €60 NLHE event also thrown into the mix.

The only event on the schedule that is open to all is the €60 Ladies and Gentlemen NLHE which takes place on December 2.

Team Competition

The inaugural Queens of Tallinn comes with an exciting feature in the form of a team competition. The female players will be allowed to form a three-member team and the winning team will be determined via a points system. Each player will be awarded points based on their finishing positions in all of the events on the schedule, except the €60 Ladies and Gentlemen NLHE and the satellites. The event must have at least 12 entrants.

Organizers will deduct 2% from the prize pool of the qualifying events to generate the prize pool for the team competition. The best team will be crowned at the end of the festival. Kings of Tallinn also has a similar contest, adding an extra layer of fun and excitement for players.
