[caption width="640"] Koray Aldemir earned his first career main event win by topping an elite 39 player field. (WSOP photo)[/caption] The Triton Super High Roller Series wrapped up another exciting festival filled with high rollers populated by the best players in the world. Capping off the series was the HKD$ 1,000,000 Main Event. Poker’s best and brightest were in the 39-player field with Phil Ivey among them. No stranger to high rollers himself, 2016 One Drop final tablist Koray Aldemir walked out of the six-handed final table victorious after defeating the star-studded field. Among the final tablists were Daniel 'Jungleman' Cates, Bryn Kenney, and defending Triton Main Event Champion, Wai Kin Yong, who was also the first player eliminated. Yong was crippled by Kenney in one of the first hands at the final table and was sent to the rail one hand later. Kenney opened for 110,000 and Yong shoved all in from the small blind. Kenney called with [poker card="kc"][poker card="kd"] and was a huge favorite to double through Wong's [poker card="ac"][poker card="jh"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="kh"][poker card="8h"] flop gave Yong hope with a flush draw but the ensuing turn [poker card="3c"] and river [poker card="8c"] ensured there would be a new main event champion. Yong was crippled after the hand and Sergio Aido finished him off. Only a few more hands would go by before Devan Tang was eliminated by Aldemir. Tang moved all in for eight big blinds from the cutoff with [poker card="ac"][poker card="jd"] and Aldemir called from the small blind with [poker card="kh"][poker card="qh"]. The [poker card="ah"][poker card="jh"][poker card="9d"] flop provided plenty of action as Tang flopped two pair and Aldemir picked up a flush draw and a straight draw. The [10d] turn filled Aldemir’s straight and Tang failed to fill up on the [poker card="3c"] river. Down to his last 15 big blinds at the start of the new level, Kenney moved all in from the small blind with [poker card="kd"][poker card="6s"] and was dominated by Cates [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"] in the big blind. With only three immediate outs, Kenney missed on the [poker card="ks"][poker card="8h"][poker card="3h"][poker card="jc"][poker card="4c"] board. With his finish, Kenney earned yet another high roller score in 2017 and he is now over $1,800,000 in earnings for the year. Shortly after the elimination of Kenney, the remaining trio agreed to a deal that gave Aido the most money but still left HKD$ 400,000 to play for along with the main event trophy. Cates was knocked out soon after the deal was made as the third place finisher. With the blinds at 30,000/60,000, Aido raised to 150,000 on the button and Cates jammed for about 1,400,000 out of the small blind. Aido called with [poker card="ks"][poker card="qs"] and had the [poker card="kh"][poker card="js"] of Cates one step out the door. The [poker card="9h"][poker card="9c"][poker card="2s"] flop put a few chop outs in play but the turn and river both bricked to seal Cates’s fate. Aido brought a 3:2 chip lead into heads up play but was soon overtaken by Aldemir. Aldemir took a sizable portion of Aido’s stack a level into their match and took down the title not long after. Aldemir raised to 190,000 and Aido defended his big blind to see a [poker card="kd"][poker card="jh"][poker card="8c"] flop. Both players checked and Aido bet 275,000 on the [poker card="js"] turn. Aldemir called and the [poker card="ad"] hit the river. Aido bet 930,000 and Aldemir called with [poker card="qh"][poker card="tc"] for a rivered straight to beat the trip jacks of Aido [poker card="jd"][poker card="4d"]. The blinds moved up to 50,000/100,000 and Aido was down to less than 15 big blinds. Aido limped in with [poker card="ks"][poker card="tc"] and Aldemir pushed with [poker card="ah"][poker card="2h"] to put Aido at risk. Aido called and was live to extend his heads up match. The [poker card="qs"][poker card="9s"][poker card="8d"] flop gave Aido plenty of help by putting a straight draw in place and he improved to a flush draw on the [poker card="3s"] turn. Despite his smorgasbord of outs, Aido missed on the [poker card="5d"] river and Aldemir sealed the win. The second place finish was the second final table for Aido in the Triton Super High Roller Series after finishing fourth in the Six Max event. Aldemir officially locked up his first career main event victory and should be a familiar face for future high roller events. Final Table Payouts Koray Aldemir - HKD$ 10,032,869* ($1,292,653) Sergio Aido - HKD$ 10,378,375* ($1,337,186) Daniel Cates - HKD$ 7,765,156* ($1,000,490) Bryn Kenney - HKD$ 3,893,000 ($506,090) Devan Tang - HKD$ 2,780,000 ($361,400) Wai Kin Yong - HKD$ 2,224,000 ($289,120) * - reflects three-handed deal
[caption width="640"] Dan Colman defeated a loaded final table to win the Triton Super High Roller Series Six Max event. (PokerStars photo)[/caption] Dan Colman collected his third six-figure cash of 2017 by taking down the HKD$ 250,000 Triton Super High Roller Series Six Max Event on Saturday, beating a final table that included 2016 Super High Roller Bowl champion Rainer Kempe, Erik Seidel, Mustapha Kanit, and Timofey ‘Trueteller’ Kuznetsov. The first elimination of the final table was Italy’s Kanit. With less than 10 big blinds in front of him, Kanit shoved from the small blind with [poker card="as"][poker card="kd"] and Sergio Aido called on Kanit’s left with [poker card="qs"][poker card="8h"]. The [poker card="9c"][poker card="4c"][poker card="3d"] flop was safe for Kanit as was the [poker card="3c"] turn. The [poker card="qc"] river, however, gave Aido a pair and resulted in Kanit’s exit. Kuznetsov followed Kanit out the door over the course of two hands. Over two hours after Kanit’s bust out, Aido opened for a raise and got two callers in Kuznetsov and Seidel out of the blinds. The trio checked the [poker card="ac"][poker card="9s"][poker card="7c"] the flop and Kuznetsov bet 38,000 on the [poker card="3h"] turn. Seidel raised to 83,000 and Aido folded. Kuznetsov found a call and the [poker card="js"] hit the river. Seidel moved all in for 92,000 and Kuznetsov called to see Seidel reveal [poker card="3c"][poker card="3s"] for a turned set. Down to his last nine big blinds, Kuznetsov shoved the next hand from the button with [poker card="kd"][poker card="2d"]. Kempe called with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8s"] out of the big blind and held to eliminated Kuznetsov. Sergio Aido exited in fourth place at the hands of Colman roughly an hour into four-handed play. Aido moved all in for 115,000 from the small blind with [poker card="7h"][poker card="6d"] and was looked up by Colman with [poker card="kd"][poker card="7d"]. The board ran true for Colman and Aido exited with another high roller score in 2017. With roughly 50 big blinds in play, there was little margin for error in three-handed play. Despite getting all of the chips in with the best out of it, Kempe couldn’t out run Colman and was the third place finisher. With blinds of 20,000/40,000, Kempe opened for 90,000 from the button and Colman jammed out of the small blind to put Kempe at risk. Kempe called for his last 350,000 with [poker card="qc"][poker card="qh"] and was in great shape to double up against the [poker card="ac"][poker card="6c"] of Colman. The [poker card="7d"][poker card="6d"][poker card="4c"] flop gave Colman a pair along with a backdoor flush draw. The [poker card="6s"] turn put Colman firmly ahead and Kempe hit the rail after missing on the river. Heads up play went back and forth but Colman was able to finish Seidel off to claim victory. Seidel had a little under 1,000,000 in front of him and got all in with [poker card="ad"][poker card="6s"]. Colman had Seidel dominated with [poker card="as"][poker card="js"] and put the championship on ice with the [poker card="qh"][poker card="jh"][poker card="jc"] flop. Colman earned HKD$ 3,641,600 ($469,203 US) for his run and will be gunning for his second title of this week in the HK$ 1,000,000 Main Event which begins Sunday. Final Table Payouts Dan Colman - HKD$ 3,641,600 Erik Seidel - HKD$ 2,326,000 Rainer Kempe - HKD$ 1,466,000 Sergio Aido - HKD$ 1,011,000 Timofey Kuznetsov - HKD$ 708,000 Mustapha Kanit - HKD$ 556,000
