Our Tournament Cashier is located on the second floor of Hilton Tallinn Park, which also is the Kings Of Tallinn Summer Showdown Tournament floor.
The Tournament Cashier opens Saturday, July 22nd at 11:00. Before that, tournament tickets can be bought on the ground floor of Hilton, from the Olympic Park Casino Cashier.
All tournament tickets, and tickets won/ satellite winner’s tickets, can be picked up at our Tournament Cashier.
Re-entries are sold on the tournament floor, close to the tournament you are playing.

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

Additional points are earned when cashing from any of our tournaments, satellites and Ladies Event excluded. Team point updates can be found at https://olybetevents.com/tallinn-showdown/
