It was Estonian Jesus Day on Day 4 of the Cash Game Festival Bratislava at Banco Casino Bratislava as Unibet Poker Ambassador Rauno "Estonian Jesus" Tahvonen was the biggest winner at both feature tables in two different poker variants.

Making this feat even more impressive is that Tahvnon is primarily a tournament player.

At the first feature table with stakes at €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha, Tahvonen booked a tidy profit of €1,158 (231.6 big blinds).

The line-up changed as did the game to €5/€5 no-limit hold'em for the later feature table. The Unibet Poker Ambassador was able to book an even bigger profit in the two-card game of €1,610 (302 big blinds).

Although Tahvonen had a day to remember at the Cash Game Festival, he won't be collecting the trophy that is awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds during any of the 10 feature tables during the festival as he will be heading home to Tallinn in the morning.

Currently, it is fellow Unibet Poker Ambassador and The Chip Race podcast producer David Lappin in the driver's seat for the trophy. On Day 2, Lappin won €4,162 or 832.8 big blinds at a €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha feature table.

Lappin shared with PokerNews that he won again at the pot-limit Omaha feature table today but not as much as Tahvonen. During the hold'em feature table, he joined Cash Game Festival Head of Media Henry Kilbane in the commentary booth. PokerNews will interview Lappin live on Facebook before the feature tables begin tomorrow to discuss the festival and much more.

In addition to Lappin and Tahvonen, many others have won big thus far in the festival. Here is a look at the biggest winners at the first eight feature tables during the Cash Game Festival Bratislava.

Unibet Poker Ambassador Espen Uhlen Jorstad took a quick break from the feature table. During his break, he spoke to PokerNews about the Cash Game Festival and more on Facebook Live. Check it out in the video replay below.

Espen Uhlen Jorstad's Last Chance

The €5/€5 no-limit hold'em feature table has just begun. Among the players at the table are Unibet Poker Ambassadors Espen Uhlen Jorstad in Seat 1 and Rauno "Estonian Jesus" Tahvonen in Seat 4.

There are three Unibet Poker Ambassadors in attendance with thus far two being the biggest winners at the table. The only one that hasn't been the biggest winner is Jorstad, who is a cash game specialist.

This is Jorstad's last chance to make it three for three for Unibet Poker Ambassadors as he is leaving early tomorrow morning and will not be in attendance for the final day of the festival. Jorstad agreed to a quick interview on Facebook Live when he is ready to take a quick break in the action.

Youness Barakat, patched up by 32Red Poker, is back in action in Seat 2 hoping to be the biggest winner at his second feature table this festival. Last festival, Barakat was the biggest winner on four different feature tables, so a win here would make it six total.

As was the case at the early feature table, PokerAkedemia is once again represented at the table with Redmond Toth in Seat 7 and Janos Katzenberger in Seat 8.

Rounding off the table are three local players with Valentine in Seat 3, Tomas in Seat 5, and Ivan Barcz in Seat 6.

Once again, Henry Kilbane and Petyo Andonov will be hosting the commentary. You can watch the stream on a 20-minute delay with hole cards exposed by clicking on the Live Stream tab in our coverage.

David Lappin Wins a Huge Hand on Day 2

Jaxon

It's not often that players book a 700 big blind profit in a single session. It is less rare for this to happen in one hand. Check out the replay below of a big hand that Unibet Poker Ambassador David Lappin won at a €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha feature table on Day 2.

Rauno Tahvonen is the Early Winner

The first feature table with stakes at €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha has just ended and it was Unibet Poker Ambassador Rauno "Estonian Jesus" Tahvonen winning the most after booking a profit of €1,158 (231.6 big blinds).

While this is a nice profit for a couple of hours of "work", this doesn't put him in the lead for the Cash Game Festival trophy awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds at any of the 10 feature tables this festival.

Currently, it is another Unibet Poker Ambassador David Lappin in the driver's seat for the trophy after he won €4,162 or 832.8 at a €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha table on the Day 2.

After a small break, there will be a new line-up and a game change to €5/€5 no-limit hold'em at the feature table. Meanwhile, many players with the hospitality package are getting ready for what promises to be an amazing VIP party nearby the casino.
