PokerStars Baltic Festival Day 1A
October 28, 2021

The life of a poker pro is often times a life of travel, and this week many pros have taken this concept to the extreme, finding themselves in the beautiful Estonian city of Tallin for the PokerStars EUR1,000 buy-in Baltic Festival.

Day 1a of the PokerStars Baltic Festival attracted 130 players and although the day was somewhat short on big name pros, some including Shaun Deeb and J.C. Alvarado were on hand to test their mettle against the Northern European competition.

The day ended with 53 surviving players including one of those two pros and unfortunately for Deeb, it wasn't him, getting knocked out late in the day with pocket Sevens vs. Aces.

For more on that hand, as well as the rest of the Day 1a action at the PokerStars Baltic Festival check out the PokerStars blog (
