Summer Showdown Main Event Winner- Glen Gaines
After more than 13 hours on the final day, the United Kingdom’s Glen Gaines defeated local Estonian Igor Pihela Sr. heads-up to win the Tallinn Summer Showdown €1,100 Main Event for €62,400 at Olympic Park Casino and the adjoining Hilton Tallinn Park.
It was a back-and-forth affair during the entire final table and Gaines needed to come back from a huge heads-up deficit en route to the title. Gaines shared with PokerListings that this was just his second 1K event and he has made the most of it with the biggest Tallinn Summer showdown Main Event prize, eclipsing the €56,500 won by Finland’s Kristian Zitting, who won last year’s Main Event for €56,500.
“I’m chuffed,” shared Gaines after the win to PokerListings. “It will take a while to sink it. I wasn’t expecting to go deep considering it was my second 1K event.”
During the final table, Gaines realized that a win was within his grasp.
“I felt good four-handed,” Gaines said. I did take a knock when my tens didn’t hold from fives and thought it might slip away from me before I came back to win.”

THE SUMMER SHOWODOWN MAIN EVENT -> LIVE BLOG
Welcome to the PokerListings coverage of the 2022 Tallinn Summer Showdown €1,100 Main Event at Olympic Park Casino and the adjoining Hilton Tallinn Park.
The Main Event features two opening flights, both taking place today, with Day 1a kicking off at noon followed by a turbo Day 1b at 8 p.m.
Players will start with 30,000 in chips equating to 300 big blinds for the first two blind levels and will have plenty of opportunities to build a monster stack with late registration not only open throughout both opening flights but also during the first blind level of tomorrow’s Day 2. The tournament boasts a deep structure with hour-long blind levels. The main exception to this rule will be on Day 1b, which is described as a turbo flight but still provides plenty of time to make moves with 30-minute blind levels. Players will bag their stacks after eight blind levels of play. The shorter days allow players to also enjoy the plethora of side events on the schedule.
