Day 4 Completed
Day 4 Completed
Barry McGleenon was the star of the show on Day 4 of the Cash Game Festival Tallinn at Olympic Park Casino as he won €3,605 (721 big blinds) on the early €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha stream.
McGleenon has been to several Cash Game Festivals with two-time Cash Game Festival trophy winner Kevin Malone and is often seen having fun away from the tables both in the casino and during the Cash Game Festival activities.
Instead of focusing on adult beverages and "having a craic" McGleenon shared with PokerNews before he hopped onto the feature table that he was going to take care of business on the table.
McGleenon was a man of his word and thought people looked surprised that he was the biggest winner.
"You look surprised that I was the biggest winner," McGleenon said with a big smile. "See what water can do?"
Shortly after McGleenon's win, the line-up changed as did the game to €5/€5 no-limit hold'em for the later feature table. Michelangelo Scalcione, who was the biggest winner at a €2/€2 no-limit hold'em feature table on Day 3 proved he can play when the stakes moved up and booked a profit of €475 (95 big blinds), the most at the table.
Although McGleenon has won the most money at the feature table this festival and Scalcione is the only player to be the biggest winner at two feature tables, neither player is currently in contention for the Cash Game Festival Tallinn trophy awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds out of any of the 10 designated feature tables. In addition to a trophy the winner will also walk away with a Cash Game Festival package valued at €1,000 to the next festival at Aspers Casino Westfield Stratford City in East London. Thus far Rain Jõgioja is in the driver's seat after booking a profit of €1,845 (922.5 big blinds) on Day 1's €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha feature table.

The action was also big away from the feature table with many different games at different stakes. Players also headed to Old Town to enjoy a VIP dinner on the house at Pegasus.
Stay tuned at PokerNews as there is still one more exciting day to go at the Cash Game Festival Tallinn.
Here is a look at some of the highlights from yesterday's Day 3 which included tons of poker action and a VIP party.
Yesterday on Day 3, Michelangelo Scalcione was the biggest winner at the €2/€2 no-limit hold'em feature table after booking a profit of €348 (174 big blinds).
He moved up stakes to €5/€5 no-limit hold'em to play in the late feature table today on Day 4 and was once again the biggest winner after booking a profit of €495 (95 big blinds).
The recap of the day will be coming up shortly.
Players are filing back to the casino from dinner at Pegasus. As a result, more and more tables are opening up in what promises to be a busy poker room until the sun comes up.
Maxime Roseau was one of the earliest players to come back and shared: "The dinner was very, very good."
Last night players with the hospitality package headed off to party at the Sveta Baer. Here's a look at some of the photos of the shindig complements of Natalie Black/Cash Game Festival.
The Cash Game Festival is the ideal poker vacation for many poker players thanks to the flexibility of play and fun vibe.

You can follow the action on the Cash Game Festival Twitch channel or by clicking on the Live Stream tab in our coverage.
Barry McGleenon is usually drinking alcohol when playing poker. After the VIP party last night and a late night to follow at the casino, McGleenon switched his usual adult beverages to water.
McGleenon was the biggest winner at the €5/€5 pot-limit Omaha feature table after booking a profit of €3,605.
While this is the most money wise won thus far at any of the seven feature tables, the CGF Tallinn trophy is awarded to the player that wins the most big blinds at any of the 10 official feature tables. His 701 big blinds wasn't as big as the 922.5 big blinds Rain Jogioja won on Day 1's €2/€2 pot-limit Omaha feature table when he booked a profit of €3,605.
"You look surprised that I was the biggest winner," McGleenon said to PokerNews with a smile. "See what water can do?"
Cash Game Festival Co-Founder and betsafe poker manager Enri Orav saw an empty seat at the feature table and decided to get in on the last half an hour of action at the feature table.
So far it appears Barry McGleenon has the biggest stack of chips at the table. We will see shortly if he is the biggest winner at the table.
