Triton London: Massive first event builds £2.75m prize pool

Note: This event is still ongoing. See below for details.

Everything about this Triton Super High Roller festival in London this week was always certain to be enormous. Don’t forget, tomorrow we’re starting officially the biggest buy-in poker tournament in the game’s history, which will pay the biggest ever first prize.

This afternoon, however, we’re just dipping our toes in the deep water with a £25,000 buy-in single-day turbo tournament — a gentle warm-up for the coming nine days of very, very expensive action. But this one too is very well worth winning.

During a re-entry period lasting 12 levels, tournament organisers accepted 117 buy-ins, including 44 re-entries, which built a prize pool of £2.75 million. That means that the winner will get £690,000 (around $840,000) from a single day’s work.

Educated predictions put the finish time at between 2 and 3 o’clock in the morning, so stick around (or come back in the morning) to find out how this one played out.

NOTE: This event did not finish inside its allocated single day and seven players will return at 1pm on August 4 to play to a winner.

Current chip counts:

Linus Loeliger, Switzerland – 5,055,000 (51 BBs)
Lucas Greenwood, Canada – 4,400,000 (44 BBs)
Timothy Adams, Canada – 4,090,000 (41 BBs)
Kahle Burns, Australia – 3,755,000 (38 BBs)
Cary Katz, USA – 2,540,000 (25 BBs)
Michael Soyza, Malaysia – 2,055,000 (21 BBs)
