Christian Braeuer Powers His Way to a Big Win on Day 3 of the Cash Game Festival Tallinn
Day 3 of the Cash Game Festival Tallinn at Olympic Park Casino was full of action both on and away from the tables.
The day began with a treat for fans of the Cash Game Festival stream as five new poker variants were broadcasted. For the first time Big O (five-card pot-limit Omaha h/l), Courchevel, Badugi, crazy pineapple, and Sviten special were shown live on an early stream.
Cash Game Festival Jens Henrik Riis, known as "Dansken" to his friends, was the biggest winner at this table after booking a profit of €573. "I have never seen a run like that in my life," shared Riis to PokerNews. "I couldn't lose in the first nine hands."
The first official stream of the day began shortly after, with stakes at €2/€2 no-limit hold'em. Michelangelo Scalcione navigated his way to the biggest win at that table after booking a respectable profit of 174 big blinds.
The game then changed to €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha. Rain Jogioja, who is currently in the lead for the Cash Game Festival Tallinn trophy after booking a profit of €1,845 (922.5 big blinds) on Day 1's €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha table, was out for blood looking for an even bigger win.
The Estonian did manage to book a respectable profit of €992, but 32Red Poker qualifier Christian Braeuer rained on his parade by winning a bigger profit of €1,256 (628 big blinds). Although Jogioja wasn't the star of Day 3, his Day 1 win is still enough to keep his lead in the trophy competition.
