Lasse Laukkarinen Claims The Festival Tallinn Main Event Day 1B Chip Lead

Lasse Laukkarinen Day 1B of the 2022 The Festival Tallinn Main Event was more than twice the size of Day 1A, with 122 players piling into the Olympic Park Hotel. After ten levels of play, only 48 of those players still had chips in front of them, and nobody had a larger stack than Lasse Laukkarinen .

Laukkarinen finished the night with 196,200 chips, or 123 big blinds going into Day 2. The Finnish grinder is a regular in Tallinn, with nine of his 15 recorded live poker tournament results stemming from his play in the Estonian capital. Laukkarinen cashed in two events at the Coolbet Open in Tallinn in late May, and now looks to be set to add another in the money finish in The Festival Tallinn Main Event thanks to leading the tournament overall. The Festival Tallinn Main Event Day 1B Top 10 Chip Counts

1 Lasse Laukkarinen 196,200 123 2 Tapio Aaltonen 187,100 117 3 Michael Viggander 150,000 94 4 Mats Palokangas 144,800 91 5 Kaido Mikk 129,600 81 6 Aleksi Naski 125,300 78 7 Heidi Bekker 124,400 78 8 Ronny Albrigtsen 123,200 77 9 Sarunas Abdrachmanovas 120,800 76 10 Aleksiy Baranovskiy 117,900 74 Tapio Aaltonen (187,100) bagged up enough chips for second place on the Day 1B overnight chip counts. Aaltonen won a huge flip with ace-king versus pocket eights on the hand before the final scheduled break of the flight, which put him up to 175,000 chips. He added another 12,100 chips to his stack during the last two levels.

Michael Viggander (150,000), Mats Palokangas (144,800), and Kaido Mikk (129,600) are the players rounding out the top five chip counts on what was the second of four scheduled Day 1s.

The incredible day of Coolbet ambassador Heidi Bekker is worthy of a mention. Bekker got off to a poor start and saw her 30,000 starting stack dwindle to only 8,000 chips at one stage. However, she not only fought back but ended Day 1B with 124,400 chips, enough for seventh place on the overnight leaderboard.
