First Ever Coolbet Open won by Sebastian Wahl for €50,100

Tags: Coolbet, Sebastian Wahl.
Posted on 10 May 2018 by "T".

The very first Coolbet Open festival was a smashing success, considering the number of attendees which surpassed the organizers' expectations. The player field was 425, and this generated a huge prize pool worth €206,125. Additionally, the festival had 26 side events and one main event that altogether created an exciting 27-event schedule.

Hailing from Finland, Sebastian Wahl was the last man standing from a field of 425 players to claim the victory for the first-ever Coolbet €550 Main Event for €50,100. The event was held at Olympic Park Casino and the Hilton Tallinn Park in Tallinn, Estonia.

Wahl will also receive as a special prize a Coolbet Open package worth €1,200 for the next festival in Tallinn, which is scheduled in October. Also, as the top winner he was given a Las Vegas package for two valued at €5,000! The special packages were generously added to the prizepool courtesy of Coolbet, to which they handed out to all the final table players.

According to the Hendonmob website, this most recent cash win of his is his biggest one so far. His first experience on the live setting was back on October 2012, where he also won 1st place at the € 220 + 30 No Limit Hold'em Raymond Poker Event in Helsinki for €17,028!

Overall, his current total live earnings is at $87,667.

It's very nice that live poker is also happening in Europe in some locations because not all players have time or money to cross the ocean and play in Las Vegas. They will participate here and they can have the chance to make an extra money but will accumulate some experience. Congratulations to the players of the final table.

Not a huge amount as a win, but you can say it was a good one for that buy in.
The more tournaments there are the better for the poker community.
More chances to win live, plus the game gets more "recognized"

Coolbet had 16% rake in this if I am able to count it right. A bit interesting number if you ask me, nut probably this is how they payed for those 'extra' special packages.

Massive well done to a Finnish poker player Sebastian Wahl, who topped a field of 425 players to win the inaugural Coolbet Open! What an accomplishment! He will be on cloud nine for days. I have never been to Estonia but it has been on my list for a long time.

Comparing what some people could earn on average in Estonia I would say that five hundo is a big buy-in for a tourney sized like this.
 Gerimantas12/05/2018 13:43:35 GMT
Yes bowie1984 you say right thing, because five hundred Euro is big money if look at average money people earn, almost all month of work to get this. But this buyin is small if compare with 10.000 buyins or similar
 CALICUL12/05/2018 16:50:19 GMT
If this amount is big organizers of this tournament need to make satellites online a month or two before the game. If the entry would be 30 dollars, players from other countries will not rush to come and play for this.200, 300 or 500 dollars is an acceptable amount for gamblers.

hey now that's cool. coolbet open, and a first one ever, like ever and ever... dude who won it surely will get his name into the history books, now all that is left is to hope that the first one will not be the last one, now that would be really cool thing.

a new tournament provider has already massed full strength with several side events and a lot of action in the main event that had many entries generating a big award in euros parabem collbet
