Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Returns to Jeju With 11-Event Schedule; Montenegro and London Also in 2020 Lineup

With the world on the brink of a third world war, it’s a perfect time to lock yourself in a casino for 12-days, and forget that the world even exists. 

Triton has your back. 

The Triton Poker Super High Roller Series returns after a six-month hiatus, and the first event comes to you live from Shinwa World in the South Korean island of Jeju. 

From February 10-22, the world’s elite poker player players (both professionals and non-professionals alike) will clash in a series of tournaments and cash games that will blow your mind.

Bandages, casts and defibrillator paddles at the ready. 

There are 11-events, six more than Triton’s Korean debut in 2018, and 4 more than 2019’s clod of earth raising event. Buy-ins range between HKD 250,000 (USD 32,000) and HKD 1m (USD 128,000), and there are two at the top end of that range.

– Event #6: HKD 1m Triton Jeju No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE) Main Event (14-16 Feb).

– Event #11: HKD 1m Triton Jeju Short-Deck Main Event (20-22 Feb).

After Jeju; Montenegro and London

The Triton team has announced a further two 2020 events post-Jeju. The first comes from the Maestral Resort & Casino in Budva, Montenegro May 4-18, before heading to London Jul 29 – Aug 13. England’s capital was the site of Triton’s last event. Aaron Zang won the record-breaking £1m buy-in Triton Million: A Helping Hand for Charity for £13.7m after cutting a heads-up deal that saw Bryn Kenney collect £16.9m to shift him to the top of the All-Time Money List with more than $55m in live tournament earnings.
