The first televised feature table of Day 2 has just kicked off with stakes at €2/€2 no-limit hold'em. The theme of the table is that every player is registered to a local Estonian poker club. The line-up looks like one of the more competitive ones. Here is a look:
Meelis Vist, in Seat 1, belongs to the Wismari poker club. Despite this being his first Cash Game Festival, Vist has eight years of poker experience. Also representing this club are Anto Variku (Seat 4) and Karev Tralla (Seat 5).
Tauri Taimre, in Seat 2, is a member of the newly founded Cash Game Pokkeriklubi. He has been to many Cash Game Festivals when they have visited the Estonian capital and considers himself a semi-pro with eight years of poker experience.
Villu Metsur, in Seat 3, is representing the Insomnia poker club. This is his second Cash Game Festival and shared he has more than a decade of poker experience. Cash Game Festival veteran Rikard Relander, who was also at the feature table last night, is also on the table in Seat 8.
Kaido Koorits, in Seat 6, belongs to the Nemesis poker club. He was one of the original players at a Cash Game Festival having attended one in 2014 in Tallinn before the tour went international.
Rounding off the table in Seat 7 is Jokker's Marko Keskel.

Welcome to Day 2 of the Cash Game Festival Tallinn at Olympic Park Casino.
Yesterday was an exciting start to the festival with many players coming from around Europe to the Estonian capital. The action in the casino is expected to pick up even more from yesterday's hot start as the weekend is approaching.
Players with the hospitality package, including those that came to the festival compliments of Cash Game Festival partners Unibet Poker, 32Red Poker, Olybet Poker, and betsafe Poker began the day with a unique bowling activity which we will cover later in the coverage.
As will be the case throughout the festival, two televised features will take place today hosted by Cash Game Festival Commentator Christin Maëmets. Guest hosts will pop into the booth throughout the day as well.
The first feature table will kick off at 6:30 p.m. EET with the stakes at €2/€2 no-limit hold'em featuring players from local Estonian poker clubs. The action will be on a 20-minute delay with hole cards exposed and can be viewed both within our coverage and at the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel.
The action changes three hours later at 9:30 p.m. EET to €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha.
Players at both feature tables have their eyes on booking at least 922.5 big blinds in profit, which was what Cash Game Festival veteran Rain Jogioja notched early yesterday when he booked €1,845 in profit at a €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha feature table.
The reason this is the target is that the player that wins the most big blinds during any of the 10 feature tables during the festival will win a Cash Game Festival trophy and a free €1,000 package to the next Cash Game Festival in the British capital of London on Jan. 30 to Feb. 3.
Our coverage will begin shortly before the first feature table kicks off. Stay tuned at PokerNews as we bring you the highlights of the Cash Game Festival Tallinn.
