Triton Poker will be starting 2022 off in style this coming February, with a charity super high roller series in Bali, Indonesia.
There was supposed to be an event late this year, but in July we received word that it was canceled. The most recent Triton event that readers are likely to have watched was the £1 million buy-in “A Helping Hand” event. This tourney aired on Youtube in September but was recorded in 2019.
This will be the first Triton live series since August 2019, when the series went to London and Rozvadov.
The Triton Poker Super High Roller Series 2022 will be another event in Triton’s A Helping Hand series of tournaments. As with previous A Helping Hand events, the prize pools will be raked with proceeds going to various charities.
Event organizers have booked the Bali Convention Centre to host the eleven events of the series. For thirteen days, players will be able to start their day off on the beach at Nusa Dua and walk right off the sand into the convention center’s temporary cardroom.
The main highlights of the series are the two $200,000 buy-in main events (one each in short deck and Texas hold’em). However, there are some “smaller” events with buy-ins starting from $30,000.
All the events are five hold’em events, five short deck events, and a single pot limit Omaha $40k.
Event numbering runs to twelve as there is no Event #4. Although registered in Malta and operating all over the world, Triton’s roots are in China where the number four is considered back luck due to an aural similarity to the word for “death.”
The plethora of high stakes short deck events would normally be like catnip to players like Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey. However, unless Indonesia’s border policies change by February, U.S. players will struggle to get in. In response to COVID, Indonesia is only allowing fully vaccinated individuals with passports from and residency in around 20 nations. The list does not currently include the U.S. or U.K.
However, players from New Zealand, India, China, and Lichtenstein can attend.
The event is likely to be a major stop on the international circuit, but perhaps a little shorter-handed than the 2019 events.
