The high-roller Triton Poker Series will return in 2024, with the first series in the upcoming year set to take place next March. Jeju Island, South Korea, will host Triton Poker Series JEJU 2024 March 5-21, 2024. The festival will end a five-year hiatus for Jeju as a Triton stop; the last time the high-roller tour visited South Korea was in March of 2019.

The super-high-roller series will include 17 events in its 17-day run, which will be held at Landing Casino, Shinhwa World, southwest of Jeju City. The picturesque Jeju Island lies about 60 miles south of the South Korean mainland, in the East China Sea, and has long been a popular Pacific Rim tourist destination.

The visit to South Korea also replaces Vietnam as Triton’s year-opening destination. In 2023, Triton offered its Super High Roller Series in Hoi An, Vietnam, a 12-day festival that included 13 primary events in the same early-March window. The 2024 slate in Jeju offers a significant increase in primary events to be contested.

Hold’em – Omaha – Short Deck… in turn

The JEJU 2024 stop epitomizes Triton’s elite niche within the tournament-poker world. JEJU 2024’s 19 events range in buy-ins from $15,000 to $150,000, and the festival is laid out in three distinct phases. The series begins with 10 no-limit hold’em events, including the stop’s $100,000 main event beginning on March 14.

On March 15, as the main event concludes, the first of three straight pot-limit Omaha offerings gets underway, all priced between $25,000 and $50,000. Then, for the festival’s final four days, attention turns to four straight short-deck events that will wrap up JEJU 2024’s action.

The full JEJU 2024 event schedule is subject to change, and it’s missing two numbered events in its earliest published form, suggesting at least some further changes may be upcoming. Also awaiting full release are details about Triton Series extras, such as the expected return in 2024 of Triton’s Ivan Leow Player of the Year leaderboard race.
