Triton Poker returns to Jeju South Korea for First Stop of 2020

After taking you to a whole ‘nother level during the Triton Millions: A Helping Hand for Charity we felt like you needed a break from all of the excitement.

Well, break time is over!

Pack your bags, or prepare to tune in from home, because the Triton Super High Roller Series returns with its first event of 2020, and it promises to be another whizz, bang, wallop of a high stakes series.

February 10-22, 2020, Triton returns to South Korea and Jeju Shinhwa World for 12-days of mind-blowing poker, at the highest-stakes involving the best pros and semi-pros in the business. 

When the Triton Poker Series first planted a flag in the Jeju Province in 2018 there were five events on the schedule. The return in 2019, saw that increase by two. 2020 adds even more value for the players and consumers of world-class poker content with an increase to 11 tournaments, featuring No-Limit Hold’em (NLHE), and Short Deck formats, as well as a Mixed Short Deck and No-Limit, Hold’em game.

The two eye-catching events are the HKD 1m NLHE Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Main Event, and the HKD 1m Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Short-Deck Main Event.

In 2018, when the Main Event buy-in was HKD 2m, Mikita Badziakouski became the first player to win back-to-back Triton Poker Super High Roller Series NLHE Main Events, defeating 55-entrants on his way to an HKD 41,250,000 (USD 5,257,027) first prize. Kenneth Kee took down the 60-entrant HKD 1m Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Short-Deck Main Event for HKD 22,500,000 (USD 2,867,009).

The series returned in 2019, with Timothy Adams winning the HKD $2m Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Main Event, conquering a field of 48-entrants to win the HKD 27,760,500 (USD3,536,550) first prize. Jason Koon vanquished 81-entrants to win the HKD 22,300,000 (USD 2,840,945) first prize in the HKD 1m Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Short-Deck Main Event.

Here is the full schedule:

Amongst the glitterati confirmed to participate in the festival, include Triton Poker Ambassadors Tom Dwan and Jason Koon, Triton Million London winner Aaron Zang and the legendary poker ace Phil Ivey

Players receive five nights free accommodation at the Marriott Hotel Jeju Shinhwa World for every HKD 1m in tournament buy-ins they compete in. For example, if you compete in HKD 2m worth of buy-ins then you receive 10 nights free accommodation. 

Once again the Triton Super High Roller Series offers unparallelled digital coverage, available in English for free on the official Triton Poker Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook channels, and the Triton website.
