Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Jeju 2020 Cancelled Due to Coronavirus Risk

March 2020 – It’s with great sadness that Triton Poker announces the cancellation of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series, Jeju. Originally, planned for February, Triton Poker took the unprecedented step of postponing the series after the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) began in China’s Wuhan Province.

Since the decision to postpone the event, the virus has spread globally. As accurate as of March 2, Korea’s confirmed COVID-19 cases had reached 5,328 with 33 deaths – the second highest case rate, and fourth-highest death rate, hence the cancellation. As of March 4, there have been 93,191 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 3,203 deaths.

The next event on the Triton Poker High Roller Series schedule is in Montenegro, where the Maestral Hotel & Casino will play host May 8 – 22.

Coronavirus Outbreak Leads to the Postponement of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Jeju

Jan 2020 – It’s with a heavy heart that we inform you of the postponement of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Jeju after the World Health Organisation (WHO) called the Coronavirus outbreak a ‘Public Health Emergency.’

Since the Coronoavirus first leapt from animals to humans in China a few weeks ago, close to 10,000 people have been infected, and it’s killed more than 200. All of the deaths have been inside China, but the virus has spread to more than a dozen countries.

The safety of our players and support staff remains our utmost priority. Coupled with our duty to do everything we can in our power to prevent the virus from spreading, we’ve taken the difficult but correct stop of postponing the event with immediate effect.

The thoughts and prayers of the Triton Poker Team are with the families of those that have lost their lives and for the ones fighting the virus all over the world.

Another official announcement in regards to the potential resurrection of the event will be made on February 10th, 2020.
