Team Competition

Team Registration

2% of all Kings of Tallinn 2024 prize pools, tournaments with a minimum of 12 unique participants, will go into a Team Challenge prize pool. Satellites, online events and the Ladies NLH excluded.

Players form teams of four people, and automatically collect points for their teams, when entering, and cashing, in any Kings of Tallinn 2024 Live Team Ranking Tournaments. 

The Team Competition is free to enter.

Team registration will close Friday March 1, at 14:15 local time.

Please note that in order to receive points for a ranking event, the team has to be registered before the respective event starts, with the exception of the Kings of Tallinn Main Event where team registration will close Friday March 1, at 14:15 local time. 

 By completing this form you agree with the GDPR terms and conditions.

All four team members must play a minimum of one Kings of Tallinn 2024 ranking event.

The points of all four team members will be summed up and the team with the most points will be announced as winners of the Kings of Tallinn 2024 Team Challenge.

The winning team will be declared after the last Kings of Tallinn 2024 ranking tournament is played out, on Sunday evening March 3, 2024. 

40% of the total Team Challenge Prize Pool will go to the winning team and 25% to the runner-ups. Top 5 Teams get paid:

  1. 40%
  2. 25%
  3. 15%
  4. 10%
  5. 10%

of the total Team Challenge Prize Pool.

Players receive one (1) point for every Kings of Tallinn 2024 ranking event they play (excluding satellites, online events and the Ladies Event). Additional points are earned by cashing out events and making money. Please note that re-entries do not reward additional points.

In the case of a deal, all players involved in the deal will receive team challenge ranking points according to the officially announced prize money of the lowest place involved. E.g., if for example three last remaining players of the tournament decide to split the prize money of the top 3 places, they will all receive points based on the amount of the officially announced 3rd place prize money, irrespective of the actual final payouts.

Example of Team Points calculating:

Buy in: €315 + €35

Unique Entries: 210

Re-entries: 80

Total Prize Pool: 290 x €315 = €91,350

Calculating the winner’s points, when the winner received €18,270: total prize pool €91,350 divided by the unique player number (210 in this example):

€91,350 : 210 = 435

Amount won: €18,270

€18,270 : 435 = 42

This player will receive 42 points + 1 participation point

  • The buy-in size that will be used for awarding ranking points in multiple buy-in tournaments (rebuy and re-entry events), will be calculated by the average actual buy-in amount of all the players who entered the tournament (prize pool divided by the number of players) 
  • Players also receive 1 point for every ranking event they play. Re-entries or rebuys do not reward additional points.

Key Tournament Rules

All tournaments operate under TDA rules.

  • English only when anyone at your table has cards.
  • The player that made the last aggressive action shows first and if there is 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 the floor person or tournament director only, and when the time request is reasonable. The given time is a total of 30 seconds, but the Tournament Director’s discretion may apply.
  • To have a live hand, players must be at their seats when the last card is dealt to all players on the initial deal. Players not then at their seats may not look at their cards which are killed immediately. 
  • 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.
