Chidwick still on top

Stephen Chidwick sits atop the leaderboard in the race for Player of the Year. Chidwick has amassed 1,904 points, putting him clear of second place Sam Greenwood with 1,543 points. Jason Koon, Mikita Badziakouski, and Seth Davies round out the rest of the top five.

Stephen Chidwick

Chidwick hopes to defend his lead on the rest of the field — no simple task when you look at the list of confirmed players. Notable names include Michael Addamo, Dan Smith, Isaac Haxton, Phil Ivey, Fedor Holz, and Nick Petrangelo.

A newcomer to the Triton SHRS, Eliot Hudon, looks to follow up on his recent success at the WPT World Championship.

And let’s not forget the ACR Eleven. Phil Nagy’s contingent of players is also on the way, set to make their own mark on poker history. Needless to say, this tournament stop is not for the faint of heart.

High roller Rob Yong summarized the decision to play the festival better than any.

Where and how to watch

Triton will be live-streaming each event on both Twitch and YouTube. Additionally, the Triton Poker Plus app allows spectators to sweat every single bit of the action.

PokerOrg will be on the ground in Vietnam covering the festival every step of the way. Be sure to follow along for firsthand updates.
