Best Estonian poker players
Estonia ranks 47th in the live poker circuit with over $17M in profits; Markku Koplima ($1,2M, European Poker Tour Barcelona 2019 winner), Madis Muur ($768k), and Matthias Tikerpe ($580k) are the top live players living in the country.

Estonian legal poker background
Estonia opened its doors to online poker in 2010 with a friendly regulation that allows Estonian players to join virtually any poker room worldwide. That's why, despite having a relatively small population, Estonian players sum more than $30M in online poker profits.
In 2011, the Estonian authorities decided to ask for a license to offshore operators and even started blocked some domains, but poker players can still safely join international poker rooms. The Olympic Park Casino in Tallinn has hosted significant poker events like the MPN Poker Tour or the EPT.
