Players and staff alike work very hard at all events on the Triton Series. There are poker tournaments going on for about 12 hours of every day, plus cash games in the tournament down-time, as the world’s premiere high-stakes tournament series offers everything these elite players need.
The one exception was last night, where Triton hosted its players party at the conclusion of Day 1 of the PLO — in association with one of Triton’s new partners Iron Balls. There were free-flowing drinks, all the food you could eat, and some taste of the local culture too in the form of a flamenco quartet.
Those Iron Balls drinks incredible popular, of course: there was the “Full House” cocktail (Iron Balls vodka, ginger beer, kaffir, Campari and saline & citric soul) or the “Four of a Kind (Iron Balls Gin, cucumber & basil tonic, marrasquino, and green chartreuse).
There’s not much point in attempting to describe the scenes inside Casino Gran Via, especially when Triton photographer Joe Giron was there too. Here are a few snaps from the evening.
