Remember to get your daily casino wristband, by registering at the Olympic Park Casino Reception on the ground floor of Hilton, before entering the tournament floor!

Late Registration

All events, one hand flips excluded, have a minimum of one hour late registration period. You can check the late registration times in our schedule. 

Please note that coming late into an event may result in having to wait for a seat as many of our events are very popular. Buying tournament tickets prior to starting time is highly recommended.

Tournament Waiting Lists

Sometimes the tournament ticket demand gets bigger than what we may have in seats at that point in time and we may have to create a waiting list for an event. A floor staff will be in the tournament room to write down player’s names. This usually means a small wait for players coming in late, but seats will be provided, and players will eventually go in with a full-stack. Players coming in late, with late registration already closed, will have part of their stacks blinded off.

One Hand Flips

One Hand Flip satellites are fast tracks into a target event. Flips do not have a late registration period. Registration ends when the flip is about to start.

Tournament Caps

Kings of Tallinn events are very popular and some events might need to have a waiting list. We will seat all players, and there are currently no tournament caps, but if or when coming in late to a certain tournament, there might be a small wait for a seat. Buy your tournament tickets beforehand and come in when the tournament starts, and there should be no waiting for any seating.

We reserve the right to add a cap to an event should it be required.

Team Competition

2% of all Kings Of Tallinn 2023 prize pools, tournaments with a minimum of 12 unique participants, will go into a Team Challenge prize pool. Satellites and Ladies Event excluded. 

Players form teams of four people, and automatically collect points to their teams, when entering any Kings Of Tallinn 2023 Live Tournaments. Additional points are earnt when cashing from any of our tournaments, satellites and Ladies Event excluded. Team point updates can be found at

75% of the Team Challenge prize pool will go to the winning team and 25% to the runner-up team. The winning team will be declared after our last event, on Sunday evening March 5th.

Teams can be registered until the first break of the Main Event Day 1a.

Please use the team registration form at to register your team. 

Entering our Kings Of Tallinn 2023 Team Challenge is free of charge.

Points for the Team Challenge are calculated by the prize money earned from a tournament, divided by the amount of the tournament buy-in (without fee).

Tournament Schedule

The tournament schedule has been built so that players can play the Main Event and most of the side events. The Main Event Days 1 and 2 end by 21:00 and players can then enter evening tournaments.

All tournaments have unlimited re-entry possibility, unless otherwise stated.

4% of the tournament prize pools (satellites excluded) will be withheld towards staff costs.

Key Tournament Rules

All tournaments operate on TDA rules, which are used by all main tournament providers in the world.

  • The Tournament Director and Floor Personnel are to consider the best interest of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process. Unusual circumstances may on occasion dictate that decisions in the interest of fairness take priority over the technical rules. The decisions of the Tournament Director and/or Floor Personnel are final.
  • English only when anyone at your table has cards.
  • The last aggressive action shows first and if no action, the next player from the button shows first. All in and call: all players involved need to showdown.
  • Calling for a clock: time is given by floor person or tournament director only and when the time request is reasonable. Given time is a total of 30 seconds in all events, but TD’s discretion may apply.
  • If a player has not taken their seat and the dealer has dealt the last player all the cards, then: in tournaments - the hands of those players are declared “dead” and the cards are removed (mucked). in cash games - the cards are removed, when it’s this player’s turn to make a decision and they have not taken their seat.
