The future of Coolbet Open
The fifth edition of Coolbet Open was a huge success with +€300k in the prize pool for the Main Event and more than 2500 total entries over the 27 events. Players from all over Europe travelled to Estonia for the event and even players from Japan and Chile came especially for the event in May.
It will unfortunately be the last Coolbet Open at the Olympic Casino in Tallinn. Olympic Casino has decided that competing operators to their own local online brand, including Coolbet, will no longer be allowed to host tournaments or festivals at their premises.
This means that the planned event in October 2022 will not happen.
Coolbet Poker Manager Thomas Hviid says:
“We would like to thank Olympic Casino for their cooperation regarding the previous editions of Coolbet Open. “We are however very disappointed with getting this information from Olympic Casino after an otherwise very successful event which went very smoothly. Coolbet Open has been helping the casino with branding Tallinn as a poker destination and also generated quite some revenue for the casino as well as the adjacent Hilton hotel”.
Coolbet will now work on finding a new venue for Coolbet Open with the aim to have the event again in 2023.
“Coolbet has thanks to its customers made Coolbet Open to one of the strongest and warmest poker festivals in our region. We are confident that with the experience in our team and all the investments already made for the poker festival, we will find a cool venue that will bring Coolbet Open to the next level next year”.
Package holders for Coolbet Open will be contacted soon regarding their package. For any questions, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
