The third leg of the MPN Poker Tour continues in Estonia, January 15-18, 2015, with the picturesque city of Tallinn playing host.
The venue, Olympic Casino Olümpia, is a very well respected poker venue and, given that poker fans enjoy their comfort, this excellent venue also happens to be in the luxury hotel in which our package qualifiers will be staying, namely the Radisson Blu Olümpia. While the buy-in for the Main Event, which offers a guaranteed prize fund of €40,000, is €550, a more attractive route to Estonia's capital is via our qualifying packages, each worth €1,500! This includes the buy-in, four nights' accommodation and spending money... We have qualifying satellites at 32Red Poker to suit all bankrolls, with satellites available that literally cost only pennies. Good luck!
Each package is valued at €1,500 and includes:
- €550 buy-in for the €40,000 guaranteed Main Event
- €150 buy-in for a Side Event (2 events to choose from*)
- 4 nights’ accommodation (inc breakfast) at the luxurious Radisson Blu Olümpia
- €400 towards travel/expenses
- Welcome Party Invitation
*If you’re unable to play a side event because you’re still playing the main event, we’ll give you €150 cash. Otherwise, the €150 side event entry is not refundable or exchangeable.
How To Qualify:
This is the satellite structure for all MPNPT events. Tickets are valid for 365 days, so you can start playing now to collect tickets for future events.

Tallinn is a picturesque winter city setting, but it will be very cold (around freezing!) in January, so remember to bring warm clothes. However, in keeping with the city's tourist-friendly attitude, restaurants and bars provide outdoor seating areas complete with heaters - and even blankets.
Radisson Blu Olümpia hotel
The package includes four nights (including breakfast) in the excellent Radisson Blu Olümpia, check-in being on January 15th, and check-out on the 19th. Please inform us if you require additional nights and we will endeavour to help, although there is no guarantee extra nights will be available. There is free Wi-Fi available throughout the hotel.
Players will be responsible for any additional room charges, and might, on checking in, be asked for a credit card to cover any such charges. Note that nothing will be debited from your card unless you use any additional room services.
Olympic Casino Olümpia
Players should adhere to the casino house rules for poker (Read the Rules), and there is also a smart/casual dress code.
As is the case with the majority of casinos, a form of government-issued ID will be required, so if you’re lucky enough to win a package, please don’t forget to bring your passport, driving licence or ID card. All participants must be at least 21 years old to play MPNPT Tallinn.
The usual route for overseas visitors to Tallinn is to fly to Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport (TLL), which is only a ten minute drive from the venue hotel. Direct flights are available from many European airports including London, Stockholm, Helsinki, Trondheim and Riga.
Taxis can be found directly outside Arrivals – look for the bright yellow cars. These are metered, and the journey to the hotel should cost approximately €7 EUR.
There is also a Ferry from Helsinki, Mariehamm, or Stockholm, among others.
