  1. It was another banner day for one of poker’s winningest players as Bryn Kenney found himself back in the winner’s circle again after taking down the 2019 HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event for $2,713.859. Kenney outlasted an all-star final table that included runner-up Daniel Tang, Peter Jetten, Nikita Badziakouski, Sam Greenwood, Erik Seidel, Matthias Eibinger, Jason Koon and Triton Poker Series founder Paul Phua. Kenney’s over $2.7 million score is the second largest of his career, right behind his over $3.06M haul that he took home for his runner-up finish in Triton’s HK$2M Super High Roller Series Jeju Main Event in March. It’s his second victory of the Montenegro series, the first coming in Event #2 (HK$500,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Handed) where he won the $1,431,376 first-place prize. Kenney’s 2019 has been nothing short of incredible. According to The Hendon Mob, the New York pro has eight results this year, four of which are for victories - including his official first-place finish in the 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event. In total, Kenney has over $9.1 million in total earnings this year alone, putting him at the top of the list for 2019 earners. He has also jumped up two spots on the All-Time Money List to fourth place sitting only behind Erik Seidel (3rd), Daniel Negreanu (2nd) and list leader Justin Bonomo. HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event Final Table Results 1. Bryn Kenney - $2,713,859 (HK$21,300,000) 2. Daniel Tang - $1,796,498 (HK$14,100,000) 3. Peter Jetten - $1,223,148 (HK$9,600,000) 4. Nikita Badziakouski - $925,005 (HK$7,260,000) 5. Sam Greenwood - $719,873 (HK$5,650,000) 6. Paul Phua - $560,609 (HK$4,400,000) 7. Erik Seidel - $440,842 (HK$3,460,000) 8. Matthias Eibinger - $341,462 (HK$2,680,000) 9. Jason Koon - $261,193 (HK$2,050,000) Kenney’s Path To Victory Although the player pool for the Main Event was limited, a total of 44 players (plus their 31 re-entries) pushed the prize pool to HK$70,500,000 ($8,982,494 USD). When the final nine returned to play to a winner, there were plenty of short stacks at the table. One of them was Triton ambassador Jason Koon. After losing a flip and doubling up Paul Phua, Koon was sitting on five big blinds. He moved in on the button with [ac][7d]. Nikita Badziakouski reshoved to isolate Koon, holding [8c][8s]. However, Matthias Ebinger also got involved from the big blind, calling with [ad][qh]. While a queen did hit the flop, an eight turned and both Koon and Eibinger hit the rail. Koon, the shorter stack, would take ninth place for $261,193 while Eibinger settled for eighth place and $341,462. Seidel finished in seventh place when his short stack re-shove with [qh][9h] from the small blind was called by Badziakouski’s [as][td]. The pro from Belarus turned the ten-high flush to send Seidel out the door in seventh for $440,842. The final six battled for the better part of three levels, during which time Kenney began to accumulate chips from the then chip leader Badziakouski. Six handed, Kenney picked up pocket queens on the button and limped, the small blind folded and Paul Phua checked his option holding [7s][4d]. The flop brought both a seven and a queen, giving Kenney a lock on the hand. Phua, however, moved all in with his pair of sevens, practically drawing dead. Phua finished in sixth for $560,609. Greenwood was sitting on a short stack and from the cutoff, he limped with the [ad][qd]. Danny Tang completed in the small blind with the [ks][5d] and Badziakouski checked his option with the [kc][9h]. The flop came [2c][kd][4s] with both blinds flopping a pair. Checked to Greenwood he put out a min-bet. Tang made the call and Badziakouski put in a raise. Greenwood tank-shoved which got Tang to fold. Badziakouski tanked, fearing Greenwood has limped aces pre-flop. Eventually, Badziakouski made the call. The board bricked out for Greenwood who finished in fifth place adding $719,813 to his earnings, which is now more than $17.445M lifetime. Kenney and Badziakouski then got the two biggest stacks in on a massive flip as Badziakouski’s [ac][js] faced off against Kenney’s [7c][7s]. Kenney’s pair held and Badziakouski, who had led for the majority of the final table, ended up in fourth place taking home $925,005. After that hand, Kenney was a massive chip leader over both Jetten and Tang. Kenney took out Jetten in third place when his [th][9s] clipped Jetten’s [ks][6h]. Jetten picked up the second largest cash of his career, taking home $1,223,148. Finally, Danny Tang faced off against Kenney with 12-1 chip deficit. There was no coming back in this one as Kenney closed it out, making Tang the runner-up for $1,796,498. It is the first seven-figure cash of Tang’s career. For Kenney, the heater continues as the $2,713,859 first-place prize of the HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event is his third million dollar score in a row. The 2019 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro continues through May 17.
  2. Triton Poker set out to make poker history this week and they most certainly will and in more ways than one. Not only does the Triton Million’s £1,050,000 buy-in ($1,273215) make it the largest buy-in tournament in history, but with 54 players helping generate a prize pool of £54,000,000 ($65,611,361) the first place prize of £19,000,000 ($23,085,479) makes it the largest single tournament payout of all time. Million Dollar Payouts It’s not just first place that is going to find themselves flush after the Triton Million comes to an end. With an astronomical buy-in, Triton officials decided to flatten out the payouts opting to award 11 of the 54 registered players (20%) some piece of the prize pool. Granted, the players that just squeak into the money will be earning little more than their money back ($1,335,923) but a final table finish, resulting in a payday of $1,457,371 would make for a career-high cash for 20 of the participants including pros Andrew Robl, Vivek Rajkumar, Michael Soyza, and Matthias Eibinger. Triton Million Official Payouts Place Approx USD 1 $23,074,354 2 $14,176,836 3 $8,743,966 4 $5,355,679 5 $3,643,319 6 $2,671,767 7 $2,088,898 8 $1,700,266 9 $1,457,371 10 $1,335,923 11 $1,335,923 Eight-Figure Paydays The massive payouts of the Triton Million will add two more players into the extremely elite club of poker players who have earned themselves an eight-figure payday at the poker table. The addition of the first and second place scores makes for a total of ten $10M+ paydays in history and offers the current All Time Money List leader Justin Bonomo and the UK’s Sam Trickett the honor of being the first player to accomplish that remarkable score twice in their career. Until the Triton Million only the World Series of Poker’s $1 Million buy-in Big One For One Drop and the WSOP Main Event offered players the opportunity to hit such heights. The only exception was the 2016 Big One For One Drop Monte-Carlo Extravaganze one-off where Elton Tsang took home over $12.2 million in the invite-only tournament that excluded all of the world’s top players. History of Eight-Figure Paydays Year Event Place Player Payout 2019 Triton Million 1st TBD $23,085,479 2012 WSOP Big One For One Drop 1st Antonio Esfandiari $18,346,673 2014 WSOP Big One For One Drop 1st Daniel Colman $15,306,668 2019 Triton Million 2nd TDB $14,176,836 2016 Monte-Carlo One Drop Extravaganza 1st Elton Tsang $12,248,912 2006 WSOP Main Event 1st Jaime Gold $12,000,000 2012 WSOP Big One For One Drop 2nd Sam Trickett $10,112,001 2014 WSOP Main Event 1st Martin Jacobson $10,000,000 2018 WSOP Big One For One Drop 1st Justin Bonomo $10,000,000 2019 WSOP Main Event 1st Hossein Ensan $10,000,000 All Time Money List Possibilities With so much money in the prize pool, there are bound to be some major ramifications to the ever-shifting All Time Money List. At the start of the Triton Million, there were seven players that could possibly surge to the top of the list and overtake current list leader Justin Bonomo. Bonomo himself could put an amazing amount of distance between himself and the rest of the field as he currently holds a roughly $3.1 million lead over the #2-ranked Daniel Negreanu and over $9 million from the #3-ranked Erik Seidel, neither of which are in the Triton Million field. Here’s a look at the players that could make major moves on the ATML should Bonomo not be able to hold them off. Bryn Kenney - With over $34.9 million in total earnings, Kenney could become the new king of the ATML with a win or even a second-place finish. A third-place finish and he will leapfrog Negreanu for second place on the list and any cash will vault him over Seidel in third place, where he only sits $716,117 behind the legend. Jason Koon - The Triton ambassador has been steadily climbing the ATML, currently sitting in 8th place with $28,925,059 in earnings. A victory would send him north of $51 million and into first. A second-place finish in the event is not good enough to take over the top spot but it would put him in second place and within striking distance of #1 at $43 million. Dan Smith - A last-second invite from Bill Perkins puts Smith into the ATML leader mix, where he currently sits at #9 with $27,921,940. His situation is identical to Koon's - a win and he soars to over $50 million. Mikita Badziakouski - The nosebleed crusher from Belarus recently climbed into the #15 spot on the ATML and a win could put him in the top spot with over $48 million. A second-place finish would put him at just over $39 million, currently good for third place. Stephen Chidwick - Generally considered one of the very best tournament players on the planet, the UK savant has the exact same situation as Badziakouski as he only sits less than $3,000 behind him on the ATML. David Peters and Fedor Holz - Peters currently sits at #5 on the ATML and the German phenom, Holz sits right behind him at #6. Both players were among the first five players eliminated from the tournament ending their bid to climb the ATML ladder. Becoming An Instant Legend To say that first place in the Triton Million is massive is an understatement. But just how big is it? To put this first-place prize in perspective, had a player never cashed before, the first place prize alone would put you ranked at #19 on the All-Time Money List. That’s ahead of one of the most famous poker players on the planet, Phil Hellmuth, who has spent over 30 years accumulating his career total of $22,999,083. Second place also puts you in the midst of legends. The over $14 million payday would slot you in at #41 all-time, just ahead of recent bracelet winner Joseph Cheong and right behind 2009 WSOP World Champ Joe Cada. Finally, if the Triton Million third-place prize of over $8.7 million was your first Hendon Mob entry, you would just make it inside the top 100. You start your career at #100 all-time and you’d be the player to knock poker legend Johnny Chan out of the top 100.
  3. The 2019 Triton Super High Roller Series London kicks off this week with the biggest buy-in in tournament poker history as the highlight. Deemed the Triton Million: A Helping Hand for Charity, the event has a gargantuan £1,050,000 buy-in, of which £1,000,000 goes to the prize pool and £50,000 goes towards charitable causes. The Triton Million takes place at London Hilton on Park Lane and is sponsored by partypoker LIVE. It is scheduled as a three-day event from August 1-3. Charitable causes to benefit include Caring For Children Foundation, R.E.G., Healthy Hong Kong, Credit One World Charity, and One Drop. Triton Million Provides Unique Twist The Triton Million has a freezeout format with a rather unique twist to it. It’s invite-only. Invited players were issued invitations from a committee, and these players are of the recreational or businessman or woman variety. Those fortunate enough to receive invitations can then issue one invitation of their own to a guest player. The guest player can be a professional poker player. This allows for the field to be at least a 50% businessmen. For the first six hours of tournament play, the two player pools will be separated, such that the recreational/businessmen and women compete against one another and the guests/professionals play against one another. Furthermore, players will be asked to dress in formal attire for the final table. The Triton Million field has 25 businessmen signed up. Let’s take a look at them.

As for his business exploits that have earned him a fortune, Phua has been a well-known junket operator for some of the world’s richest and he’s been in the news as the "world's biggest bookie," having his Caesars Palace villa raided in July 2014 for running an illegal gambling operation. The raid came just about a month after Phua was arrested in Macau under similar charges. Phua's guest player for the Triton Million is Tom Dwan.

He doesn’t have the most live tournament earnings, with more than $7,300,000 won in his career, but make no mistake about it, Shakerchi is a grinder.

  4. One week ago, Chin Wei Lim pulled a James van Alstyne after busting the €250,000 Platinum High Roller event at World Series of Poker Europe. As soon as the final card hit, giving James Chen the victory, Lim left quickly. On Friday, once the final table of the $100,000 Diamond High Roller finished, the 26-year-old had no choice but to stick around. He had to pose for the winner photos. Lim beat a final table that included Ole Schemion, Matthias Eibinger, Christoph Vogelsang, Anatoly Filatov, and Phil Ivey before beating Jean-Noel Thorel heads-up to capture the first bracelet of his career. This is also the first live win of Lim's career following four runner-up finishes. [ptable zone="NJ Online Poker Promos"][ptable zone="888poker"][ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"] One hand. That's all Ivey got to play at the final table on Friday. The 10-time WSOP bracelet started with the shortest stack and decided to go for it on the very first hand of play. Ivey moved all in for 2,375,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="5c"] from the hijack and Vogelsang called from the small blind with [poker card="6d"][poker card="6c"]. The board ran out [poker card="ks"][poker card="th"][poker card="2d"][poker card="kc"][poker card="5s"] to eliminate Ivey in eighth place. Danny Tang, who won his first WSOP bracelet earlier this summer when he beat 122 players to win the $50,000 Final Fifty event, started the day with just 16 big blinds and didn't last much longer than Ivey. After Eibinger raised to 690,000 from UTG with [poker card="jc"][poker card="jd"], Tang shoved for 3,300,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="kc"] and Eibinger called. Tang couldn't win the race as the [poker card="qh"][poker card="9h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="7c"][poker card="8h"] runout kept Eibinger in front and eliminated Tang in seventh. Down to fewer than nine big blinds, Schemion decided to make a stand and wound up having to walk away from the table. Action folded to Filatov on the button and he made it 625,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="ks"]. Schemion moved all in for 2,620,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9h"] and Filatov called. The [poker card="qc"][poker card="jh"][poker card="3s"] flop changed nothing but the [poker card="th"] turn increased Schemion's outs. The [poker card="ah"] river was not one of them as it completed Broadway for Filatov and eliminated Schemion in sixth place. Five-handed play went on for 3.5 hours before Eibinger and Vogelsang battled in a huge pot that eventually lead to one of them leaving. Vogelsang ended up all in with [poker card="jd"][poker card="jh"] which put him behind Eibinger's [poker card="qc"][poker card="qs"]. The board ran out [poker card="ah"][poker card="qh"][poker card="2h"][poker card="5c"][poker card="7h"] to give Vogelsang a flush and leave Eibinger with just eight big blinds. One hand later Eibinger was all in with [poker card="jd"][poker card="8c"] against Lim's [poker card="qs"][poker card="6d"] and couldn't find any help to stay alive and was sent home in fifth. Despite winning the huge hand against Eibinger, Vogelsang was next in the line to become one of Lim's victims. Jean-Noel Thorel raised to 1,600,000 from the button with [k][j], Vogelsang moved all in from the small blind for 12,900,000 with [poker card="ac"][poker card="3s"] and Lim called from the big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="jd"], forcing Thorel to fold. The board ran out [poker card="ts"][poker card="7s"][poker card="6c"][poker card="2d"][poker card="qh"] to eliminate Vogelsang in fourth place and give Lim the lead with three players remaining. It took nearly an hour to get to heads-up play. Lim folded his button and Filatov moved all in for 12,500,000 with [poker card="ah"][poker card="3d"] and Thorel called with [poker card="kh"][poker card="th"]. The [c][poker card="3s"][poker card="2h"] flop moved Thorel ahead with a pair of kings and when the [poker card="jh"] turn or [poker card="5c"] river didn't improve Filatov, he was eliminated in third place. That pot gave Thorel a four big blind lead heading into heads up play with Lim. It took just 30 minutes for Lim to battle back and capture his first career bracelet. Lim raised to 2,400,000 with [poker card="8s"][poker card="4c"] and Thorel defended his big blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9c"]. After the [poker card="8c"][poker card="4d"][poker card="2c"] flop, Thorel checked, Lim bet 4,000,000 and Thorel called. The turn was the [poker card="3c"] and Thorel checked again. Lim bet 6,800,000 and Thorel called. The river was the [poker card="4s"] and Thorel checked again. Lim bet 19,000,000 and Thorel instantly moved all in for 45,000,000. Lim called and tabled his full house to bust Thorel and earn his first career bracelet and a career-best score of €2,172,104. Final Table Payouts Chin Wei Lim - €2,172,104 Jean-Noel Thorel - €1,342,459 Anatoly Filatov - €907,301 Christoph Vogelsang - €633,336 Matthias Eibinger - €457,107 Ole Schemion - €341,510 Danny Tang - €264,440 Phil Ivey - €212,504
  5. Less than a week after winning the Industry Person of the Year award at the Global Poker Awards, Paul Phua took home $1.512 million for winning the MILLIONS Super High Roller Series Sochi $100,000 No Limit Hold’em event. Final Table Payouts Paul Phua - $1,512,000 Matthias Eibinger - $1,008,000 Webster Lim - $672,000 Adrian Mateos - $420,000 Michael Addamo - $336,000 Kahle Burns - $252,000 The event attracted 42 entries and generated a prize pool of $4.2 million. The top six spots were set to be paid, with a min-cash being worth $252,000. Entering the final table, it was Michael Addamo in the lead. Following the eliminations of Cary Katz and Ben Heath, the tournament was on the money bubble. The next player to fall was Michael Soyza, hitting the rail just one spot outside the money and securing a cash for the others. Soyza went out at the hands of Matthias Eibinger. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zone="GG Poker"][ptable zone="Party Poker NJ"] According to the partypoker LIVE reporting staff, first to bust in the money was Kahle Burns, going out in sixth place at the hands of Adrian Mateos. Then it was Addamo falling in fifth place to Webster Lim. With four players left, Phua was third in chips and Mateos was fourth. Mateos moved all in from the small blind with the [poker card="5c"][poker card="4c"] and Phua made the call from the big blind with the [poker card="Ks"][poker card="7c"]. The board ran out [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"][poker card="7s"][poker card="3s"][poker card="9h"] and Mateos took his exit with a $420,000 payday. Shortly after busting Mateos, Phua doubled through Eibinger to take the chip lead. Eibinger had opened with a raise on the button and Phua had moved all in from the big blind. Eibinger called with the [poker card="As"][poker card="Jd"] but was dominated against Phua’s [poker card="Ah"][poker card="Qc"]. The [poker card="Ks"][poker card="Kd"][poker card="3s"][poker card="4c"][poker card="Tc"] board kept Phua in the lead and scored him the double. Despite losing a chunk of chips doubling up Phua, Eibinger wasn’t the next player to bust. That was Lim who fell after Phua made a very good call against him. After a preflop raise by Phua on the button and a call from Lim out of the big blind, Lim check-raised all in on the [poker card="4h"][poker card="3d"][poker card="3s"] flop. Phua tanked for a bit and eventually called with the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="5d"]. Lim had the [poker card="7c"][poker card="5c"]. The turn was the [poker card="8d"] and the river was the [poker card="9c"] to give Phua the win and send Lim out in third place for $672,000. Phua took the chip lead into heads-up play against Eibinger and made fairly quick work of his opponent. On the final hand, Phua had raised with the [poker card="As"][poker card="8s"] and Eibinger defended with a call holding the [poker card="Th"][poker card="8h"]. Eibinger then called bets on the flop and turn of the [poker card="Ah"][poker card="9d"][poker card="8c"][poker card="Kd"] board to bring the two to the [poker card="6c"] on the river. After Eibinger checked the river, Phua bet to put him all in. Eibinger made the call with his pair of eights but saw the bad news that Phua had two pair. With that, Eibinger was eliminated in second place for a $1.008 million payday. The victory pushed Phua to more than $18.2 million in career live tournament earnings, and the score was his sixth seven-figure payday from a live poker tournament.

  8. Thursday's World Poker Tour Online schedule featured just one final table but what was lacking in quantity was made up quality as the single final table was packed with some of the best poker players in the world. Sam Greenwood topped the 105-entry field in Event #11 ($10,300 High Roller) to win $257,250. The final player Greenwood eliminated, Matthias Eibinger had to settle for runner-up status and $183,750.

  10. The fields in the Super High Roller Bowl Online Series just got a little ‘tougher’. One of the most feared nosebleed tournament opponents in the game, Stephen Chidwick made his SHRB $25K Super High Roller debut and promptly captured his first title and another six-figure score. Chidwick, the recipient of the player-selected award for ’Toughest Opponent’ at the 2020 Global Poker Awards, had been noticeably absent from the daily slate of SHRB Online $25,000 Super High Roller events. But on Saturday, he finally logged on and with a single bullet took down the 43-entry field of Event #23 ($25,000 Super High Roller, 6-Max) for $430,000.01. Chidwick’s latest victory is another in an extensive list of Poker Central branded titles. His extensive poker resume includes deep runs in all three of the Super High Roller Bowls that were held in 2018 (including Macau). Additionally, Chidwick was crowned the inaugural champion of the first U.S. Poker Open as well as taking the first overall championship of the first Australian Poker Open, which was held earlier this year. Artur Martirosian made his way to his fifth final table, his third in the past three days. He finished as the runner-up in Event #23 for $275,140.87 pushing his SHRB Online series total earnings to over $1.2 million. Ireland’s Darrell Goh made his third final table of the series, pulling in $139,750 for third place. In other action, Sam Greenwood joined Viktor Blom as the only other player to have scored multiple SHRB Online Series titles. Greenwood, essentially, went back-to-back with a victory in Event #24 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max) for an even $200,000. Yesterday, Greenwood was the day’s biggest winner after taking down Event #20 ($25,500 Super High Roller for $399,000, and now he has a two day total just one dollar short of $600K. Dan Smith, who scored a win earlier in the week, finished as the runner-up which was good for $127,972.50. And Kristen Bicknell picked up a third-place finish for the second day in a row, earning another $65,000. After a pair of near-misses earlier in the series Alexandros Kolonias finally took home a SHRB title after he bested the 77-entry field of Event #22 ($10,300 High Roller, Six Max) for $240,860.62. It’s also been a good week for Matthias Eibinger. Eibinger took down his first PokerStars Spring Championship of Online Poker title three days ago and his first SHRB title yesterday. On Sunday, he finished as the runner-up in this event for $150,150. Portugal’s Joao Viera keeps getting close to a win. He finished in third place for $92,400 which was his fourth final table in the past four days. In those events, he’s finished in every position second through fifth for a grand total of $405,025.

  12. One of the most prolific nosebleed tournament players of all time was, once again, collecting a huge payday as Justin Bonomo took down his first Super High Roller Bowl Online title for the largest payday of the series thus far. Bonomo, currently ranked #2 on the Hendon Mob’s All-Time Money List, outlasted the 72 entry-field in Event #11 ($25,500 Super High Roller 6-Max) to capture the $622,634.40 first-place prize, the single largest payday of the series through 12 events. Bonomo fended off Artur Martirosian in heads-up play, leaving Martirosian to collect $405,000 as the runner-up. This is the second Super High Roller result for Martirosian in as many days as he is coming off a third-place result in Event #8 ($25,500 Super High Roller) where he picked up a $153,000 score. It was a good day for Poker Code coach Matthias Eibinger who finished in third place, earning $216,000 in what would turn out to be back-to-back cashes. In Event #10 ($10,300 High Roller, 6-Max), Vicent Bosca Ramon rose to the top of the 77-entry field to take home $240,860.62 for first.
