Triton Poker – Jeju Welcomes High Stakes Short-Deck, Ante Only Poker

June 2018 (Jeju, SKR) – What is it about Triton? What lies behind those six letters? When we close our eyes and spew forth ideas onto untouched sheaves, one phrase stands out like the red bottom of a Christian Louboutin high heel.


If you want to see world-class poker players competing in world-class games, on world class streams, in world-class venues, then we are your brand. First, there was Montenegro – the return of Phil Ivey to the winner’s circle, and the largest No-Limit Hold’em cash game pots ever played.

Next up, Jeju.

From Monday, July 23, 2018 through to Wednesday, August 1, 2018, Triton Poker will thrill the fans once again with the most exciting high stakes poker games on the planet.

The elegant and endearing five-star Landing Casino will act as host providing players with the exclusive service that they have come to expect with the Triton Poker brand.

But you won’t even notice it.

Triton Poker is about luxury, service and world-class treatment, but most importantly it’s about fun. If you’re here, then you will be doing nothing but playing poker because we have the best games in the world.

Montenegro Short-Deck champions, Jason Koon and Phil Ivey return as the tour becomes more prominent than ever.

“I have been good buddies with Paul {Phua} and Richard {Yong} for quite some time and love what they’re doing,” said partypoker ambassador Jason Koon. “These guys don’t play around. They put on big events; big tournaments and they treat players well. I am excited to go to Jeju. Bianca and I intend to get over there, do some leisure things, and win a couple of tournaments.”

The action begins with a two-starting flight No-Limit Hold’em Short-Deck, Ante Only event with an HKD 100,000 buy-in (USD 13,000). Day 1a takes place Mon 23 July (4 pm start), Day 1b Tue 24 July (4 pm start), with the final day on Wed July 25 (2 pm start).

The tempo quickens with a two-day HKD 500,000 (USD 64,000) buy-in NLHE Short-Deck, Ante Only event. Day 1 takes place at 4 pm on Wed Jul 25, with the final day beginning at 2 pm on Thu Jul 26.

If you like your poker at a more sedentary pace, then we have your back. You can jump out of the rocket ship and into the Cadillac to compete in the HKD 500,000 (USD 64,000) buy-in NLHE 6-Max event. Day 1 begins at 4 pm on the Jul 26 with the final day starting at 2 pm on Fri Jul 27.

Then we reach the crescendo of our Jeju performance.

On Sat Jul 28 at 4 pm, Triton introduces a two-day HKD 1,000,000 buy-in (USD 127,000) NLHE Short-Deck, Ante Only event. Day 1 begins at 4 pm, with Day 2 concluding at 2 pm on Sun Jul 29.

And then the pièce de résistance.

On Mon Jul 30 at 2 pm, the best players in the world come together to compete in the HKD 2,000,000 buy-in (USD 255,000) NLHE Main Event. Day 2 takes place at 2 pm on Tue Jul 31, with the final day bringing all of the fun to a climactic end at 2 pm, Wed Aug 1.

In May, the Belarusian star Mikita Badziouski defeated 63 entrants to win the HKD 19,618,400 (USD 2,499,185) first prize in the HKD 1,000,000 Main Event in Montenegro, beating the high stakes cash game star Rui Can, heads-up. Jason Koon defeated 103 entrants to take down the HKD 28,102,000 (USD 3,579,836) first prize in the HKD 1,000,000 buy-in NLHE Short-Deck, Ante-Only event. Phil Ivey and Triton founder Richard Yong took down the side events.

The Montenegro live stream was a phenomenal success with the poker community going crazy over the likes of Kane Kalas, Jason Koon and Elton Tsang clashing in USD 2,000,000 cash game pots, and the return of some of the legends of the felt.

You can expect it to be even better in Jeju.

Randy Lew will once again take the mic for the English stream this time joined by Twitch sensation Lex Veldhuis. The Chinese stream is in the capable hands of Chen An Lin.

Each stream features two feature tables, and of course, we will stream every final table live, and who knows, we may have a few surprises up our sleeves.
