Kuala Lumpur, 28 July 2022—Successful poker players spend many hours a day sitting down, where they are faced with numerous agonizing decisions. But Triton Poker, the world’s leading high-stakes poker series, has taken another step to make playing poker as comfortable as possible.
Today, Triton can announce the release of a new, exclusive poker chair, designed and produced by the multi-award-winning gaming chair manufacturer Secretlab.
Players and dealers on the Triton Series, where the world’s poker elite do battle for millions of dollars will have the chance to sit in the co-branded Triton/Secretlab chair ensuring maximum comfort for their many hours of intense competition.
The chair is a Triton Poker-exclusive edition of the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022, upholstered in their signature NEOTM Hybrid Leatherette. Featuring integrated 4-way adjustable lumbar support, full-metal 4D armrests, patent-pending cold cure foam, and more, the Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022 is recommended by ergonomics experts for its ergonomic design that supports users throughout long hours of sitting.
It is regularly described as the most comfortable gaming chair in the world — the perfect fit for the superlative talents who play on the Triton Series.
“This is a chair that money can’t buy, you have to work for it,” said Andy Wong, CEO of Triton Poker Series, revealing that only the last two players in any Triton Series tournament get to sit in the chair. “When players go all in, we want them to go all in with style.”
Wong added that the chair — the only such item tailor-made by a globally recognized brand specifically for a poker tour — reflects Triton’s commitment to providing a luxurious all-round experience for the world’s leading poker players. “It’s a champions’ chair for the Champions League of poker,” he said.
Secretlab’s designs bring together gorgeous aesthetics with only the finest materials, and their chairs are the No 1 choice among the world’s top esports teams and global esports tournaments. The Triton Poker Series is the most prestigious poker tour on the planet, attracting only the most elite poker players and businesspeople, who expect and receive superior service in every area.
The new Secretlab chair made its debut at the Triton Series’ recent stop in Madrid, Spain, where top poker pros including Erik Seidel, Stephen Chidwick, Michael Addamo, and the Triton Ambassadors Jason Koon and Tom Dwan tried it out for size. Each of them made it to heads-up play in at least one of 12 high-stakes tournaments, where players battled for prize pools of more than €44 million.
“These chairs are awesome,” said Koon, who won a fourth Triton title in Madrid, while sitting in one of the Secretlab chairs. “It’s just part of a poker player’s life that we have to sit down for hours and hours, and it’s super important that we can keep a good posture and be comfortable. The new chairs are as good as any I’ve ever played live poker in, they are really comfortable and hopefully, at the end of a long Triton series we will all feel a little more rested.”
Every one of Triton’s industry-leading team of dealers will also sit in the exclusive new chair. This provides perfect ergonomic comfort for the dealers to perform their best.
The next stop on the Triton Series is in Cyprus, scheduled for September 5-17, 2022, where players will again battle it out to sit in the Secretlab chairs.
Although high-stakes poker will always require some very uncomfortable decisions, players can at least be assured that their body will be relaxed while they make them.
