10 days to Kings of Tallinn: register your ultimate team now
1 year ago

Kings of Tallinn is not just a €500,000 GTD Main Event, it’s the whole 40 events and everything above and beyond it. That is why it’s now time to get your mates together and register your best team for the festival – more thrill, more action, more possible rewards!

Kings of Tallinn team challenge is running throughout the festival. All teams who have formed and registered their teams of 4 players will automatically collect points when participating and cashing at any of the Kings of Tallinn ranking tournaments. At the end of the festival top two teams with the most points will take home their well-earned rewards.

Ranking events are marked in the tournament schedule with the event number being on a red background. Two per cent of prize pools of all Kings of Tallinn ranking tournaments with at least 12 unique players will go into the overall team challenge prize pool.

75% of the team challenge prize pool will go to winners and 25% to the runner-up team. The winning team of last year’s festival took home more than 16 000 euros and we have every reason to believe that this year the numbers will be even bigger.

Cool updates to the rules

Points for the Team Challenge are calculated based on the prize money earned from a tournament, divided by the amount of the average tournament buy-in (without fee). Points are earned at a ranking event when there are at least 12 unique players.

Starting from Kings of Tallinn 2020 the points earned from the Main Event and the Highroller Event will not be multiplied with a coefficient, which means that cashing in these events will reward points with the same logic as cashing in any other ranking events.

To spice things up, starting from 2020, players earn 1 point for every time they participate in a ranking event. Note that re-entry will not reward additional points.

One more thing to note. In case there is a prize money deal between players then all involved players will receive team challenge ranking points according to officially announced prize money of the lowest place involved. E.g. when 3 remaining players of the tournament decide to split the prize money of top 3 places equally they will all receive points based on the amount of the officially announced 3rd place prize money, irrespective of the actual final payouts.
