25th July 2019

Are you positively dying for a bit of debauchery in Vegas? Do you fast-forward to the poker part whenever you pop Casino Royale on? Or perhaps Mississippi Grind is still giving you shivers…

Whatever rolls your dice, how does watching one of the most historic poker games to date sound, courtesy of Triton Poker Super High Roller Series’ flagship event The Triton Million? Kinda puts Bingo on the back burner hey…We’re talking about the event of the year, and a nail-biting world’s first. Yes, the richest ever buy-in poker tournament is taking place in the Grand Ballroom of the London Hilton on Park Lane.

Businessmen, recreational players, tycoons and the like will buy-in for £1,000,000 each, along with an additional £50,000 entry fee, all of which goes to charity. So, yep, that’s several million pounds flooding to worthwhile causes. Meaning you can sit, in luxury, amongst the leafy elegance of London Hilton on Park Lane and know watch a historic game that will, in some capacity, change the world!

Don’t fold, don’t faff, don’t frown it down, but come along to the £1 million Triton Million tournament set to make history, or stream it live on the Triton website, Twitch, YouTube and Facebook. Why? Because an incredible poker face could win the players more than just a pair of car keys, Bond-style – although that would be pretty cool – but in fact more money ever won at any event in the world, like, ever!

Those pulling up a pew around the table are some of the most sensational pros of all time, from Koon to Kenney, and are set to win some of the biggest prize money ever seen.

Bryn Kenney has bought-in, who, via poker, has more than $34 million in poker winnings to his name. Ranked fourth in the world, we’re kinda wishing we took up poker instead of rounders at school…You’ll also cop an eyeful of Triton Poker ambassador Jason Koon, eighth on the world’s all-time poker money list. Ah, so no bigger then! And, David Peters, a man whose winnings amount to more than $33 million, placed at fifth in the world.

Of the teeth-grinding tournament Koon said: “I love to play big stakes against tough competition, and no one checks those boxes quite like Triton. The Triton Million in London will be taking the Series to a whole new level as well as raising millions for worthy causes. There has never been a poker tournament with a buy-in of this size before, all the players will be part of poker history.”

In maintaining pokers suave exclusivity, the event will boast an “invite-only” format, with participation only secured via invite from Triton Poker or to be an invitation holder’s nominated guest. Fingers crossed French pro Rui Cao thinks of us when he selects his plus-one…So far confirmed is Hong Kong investor Stanley Choi, Dusk Til Dawn founder Rob Yong, 1978 WSOP Main Event champion Bobby Baldwin and more.

The tournament comes as the result of past success from the Triton Poker High Roller Series. First launched in 2016, the tapestry of events have snaked across the globe, with eight series’ in Montenegro, Manila, Sochi, Macau and more that have resulted in monster buy-ins!

So, if you’re ready to put all your cards on the table and make the decision to join, then know that a wealth of events will be hosted between the 31stof July 8thof August. You’ll have the flagship million pound whopper, as well as a one-day £25,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament at the start, and other £25,000 or £50,000 buy-ins.

We’re feeling royally flushed with excitement…
