Triton online qualifying at GGPoker

Once again, GGPoker is a Triton title sponsor for the Vietnam stop. The site has run numerous satellites, allowing players to potentially score a hefty five-figure buy-in for a much lower price point.

Players can begin in a $25 Road to Triton qualifier, which then leads to a $250 satellite. Players advancing in those then move into $2,625 Road To Triton super satellites.

Those guarantee one live tournament seat for every $26,500 in the prize pool. These lucky players will then take a seat in Event 1: $25,000 GGPoker Super MILLION$ Live on March 1.

“As the event is a high roller tournament, there’s not massive numbers going but I would expect a dozen or so GGPoker players will qualify,” company head of media relations Paul Burke said.

This is the first of the new live GGPoker Super MILLION$ events as well. Players can earn points for the SuperRanking leaderboard, which GG announced in January.

The leaderboard combines live and online Super MILLION$ results. The top players at the end of the year is designated as a “SuperPro” and receives:

  • Super Platinum level designation in GGPoker’s Fish Buffet loyalty program. This entitles the player to the equivalent of 100% cashback at GGPoker and in all online and offline Super MILLION$ events.
  • A custom GGPoker SuperPro avatar.
  • Additional benefits revealed throughout the year.

The second- and third-place finishers also earn the same benefits (except for the SuperPro avatar).

Overlay Edition kicks off, $10 million guaranteed

Along with a chance to get in the Triton action at a small buy-in, GG is also offering the GGMasters Overlay Edition for players with smaller bankrolls. The event features a $150 buy-in and offers a $10 million guarantee, meaning plenty of bang for the buck.

The site is also offering numerous qualifiers starting at just $2. GG is promising at least $1 million of overlay no matter if the tournament meets the guarantee or not.

Starting flights began on Sunday with numerous opportunities to enter until Day 2 gets started on Feb. 27.

“We’re happy with the participation so far,” Burke said. “We are still confident there will be a big overlay, a minimum of $1 million to be added by either GGPoker or (site ambassador) Daniel Negreanu, depending on the final prize pool generated by players. There is still lots of time for players to take part though, so we won’t know numbers for sure until after the weekend.”

GG also introduced new ways to qualify for Super MILLION$ online events.

“The satellites will help ensure that almost all players, no matter their bankroll, will have an opportunity to win their way into online poker’s most prestigious tournaments,” GG notes.

“This new edition of Super MILLION$ will really be exceptional, including a new SuperRanking format which will be based on pure win-loss, for the first time in poker history,” GGPoker ambassador Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier said.

“The winners will be recognized as the best poker players of our era, and crowned GGPoker’s first SuperPros. We’re also expanding live and bringing the Super MILLION$ experience worldwide to everyone. I can’t wait to see some new faces in the world’s greatest high roller games.”

A look at Super MILLION$ Week

Super MILLION$ Week recently concluded with the series highlighted by a $10 million guaranteed Main Event. The event easily topped the guarantee, awarding more than $11.5 million.

That is the biggest prize pool ever in a $10,000 online tournament. Since the series’ inception in June 2020, Super MILLION$ tournaments have awarded more than $300 million.

Death of Leow stuns Triton players, organizers

Leow’s passing left many players on the tour stunned and organizers facing a difficult situation. After his death, the tour released a statement honoring the player originally from Malaysia

“Ivan was a hugely popular member of the Triton family,” the statement noted. “He was warm, generous, and enormous fun both at the tables and off – a loyal friend to us all. He was also a fantastic poker player, with a lifelong passion for the game.

“Ivan was a very special person who lived life to the full, was always smiling, and loved the game of poker. He will be sincerely missed by his family, friends, and everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him.”

In a poker career stretching to 2015, Leow had $13 million in live tournament winnings. In Triton events, he recorded 12 final table appearances, winning two of those. Numerous players offered condolences online and memories of playing with Leow.

“My first interaction with Ivan Leow was in Macau and it was nothing but positive vibes,” poker player Randy Lew noted on Twitter. “He was always smiling and welcoming to every single person. He will be greatly missed. Rest in peace my friend.”

This tournament brought in a record 131 entries, the new benchmark for any Triton event so far. The previous record of 130 was set back in 2019. This event saw a $3.3 million prize pool with a familiar name finding the winner’s circle.

Patrik Antonius (pictured in lead image) has long been one of the biggest names in poker, playing high stakes events in both the live and online arenas. On Sept. 6, he added a Triton title to his poker resumé, scoring $825,000 in the process.

“These are the nicest events that exist in poker … everything is top, top quality,” Antonius said after the win. “They couldn’t do a better job. I’m happy to play these tournaments and I’m happy to win my first one.”

“I took some time off, spent some time with my girlfriend, my family,” he said. “When you travel a lot, you start to miss some things. I was missing my friends, missing my family. But then I started to miss the poker, so I came back.”

Event 6: $200,000 Coin Rivet Invitational

This huge buy-in tournament was also part of the Triton action in North Cyprus. The event featured a mix of business professionals and poker pros separated into two different fields on the first day of action.

The fields were then combined on Day 2 and played out as a regular tournament. The event produced a $23 million prize pool and the UK’s Sam Grafton grabbed the Coin Rivet title for $5.5 million.

“It was so much fun,” he said. “Playing against some of the most remarkable entrepreneurs and businesspeople in the world … it was played with a special spirit. On the day the two lanes merged, players were smiling like it was Christmas or their birthday. Everyone had a skip in their steps. Tournament poker is just amazing.

Inside Triton Poker: A Look at GGPoker Partnership, Mobile App, Upcoming Cyprus Series

Triton Poker may be entering a new stage as the high roller series continues seeing its partnership with GGPoker grow

Triton Poker may be entering a new stage as the high roller series continues seeing its partnership with GGPoker grow. The company announced a deal with GG in March and that’s led to more Triton opportunities for online poker players around the world.

The Super High Roller Series Cyprus is only days away, running Sept. 5-19 with 13 high roller events on tap. With GG now part of the equation, look for several online players to rub elbows with some of the biggest names in the game.

“This partnership has great synergy between the titans of online and offline poker, with the experience of both GGPoker and Triton, we share a common goal of growing the global poker fanbase,” Triton CEO Andy Wong told PokerScout.

Wong also spoke about the company’s efforts at growing the Triton Poker Plus mobile app. The multimedia offers gives players the complete inside scoop on the world’s biggest high roller series.

Expanding Triton online opportunities

For poker fans, Triton has become known for two big major bullet points: huge buy-ins and payouts; and slick production value. Those efforts look to continue and the deal with GG now offers average Joe players a chance to be part of that. 

It’s now possible for online poker players of all levels to have a chance to play on such a major stage with massive price points they might not otherwise be able to achieve. This puts the company on par with other major live series offering online qualifiers. These are already underway for the upcoming Triton Super High Roller Series Cyprus.

“We are definitely looking to expand the online qualifiers for the rest of the calendar to introduce new players to play at Triton events,” Wong says. “The online qualifiers are open to anyone who can play on GGPoker, and it gives an exciting opportunity to anyone to be a part of this.

“The online qualifiers will hopefully increase the diversity of players, including recreational players, who show up at Triton tournaments. As part of the Triton DNA, even with the higher-level tournaments such as the Triton Million, we always encourage a good mix of professional players playing against recreational players.”

Wong wouldn’t comment on possible Triton online events, but perhaps that may be in the works at some point. Online players will have to wait and see.

Either way, seeing some recreational players as part of the mix seems enticing for more poker operators. Will an online qualifier rise up and find a nice score in North Cyprus? This adds another fun possibility for those checking out the action.

Triton Poker growing app capabilities

Along with the GGPoker partnership, Triton is also working to ramp up the company’s mobile app. Triton is already known for offering nice streaming production via its YouTube channel. The company has also found some success syndicating Triton coverage on television in recent years.

The Triton Poker Plus app also gives poker fans easy access to everything Triton. Users will find a range of comprehensive player and tournament data as well as the opportunity to view more than 500 hours of event coverage. Poker fans and players will also find:

  • live chip counts
  • seating charts
  • payouts
  • live tournament details
  • schedules
  • player of the year rankings

“Triton Poker Plus brings an added dimension to how fans can live stream their favorite players at our events,” Wong says. “Enhanced poker entertainment right at your fingertips with full live data on all tournaments and recent hand histories of fan-favorite players – paving a better way to watch poker.”

A unique six-figure championship

The $200,000 buy-in tournament allows for a single re-entry and features a unique format. On the first day of the tournament, poker pros are separated from recreational players before the fields are merged on Day 2.

The format ensures both sides of Triton’s player base are equally represented, with the game’s affluent enthusiasts squaring off against poker’s elite, the company notes.

The race for the Triton Player of the Year award also continues in Cyprus. The competition awards $200,000 in prize money and an exclusive trophy to the winner.

GGPoker part of the festivities, even more extras planned for players

Once again, GGPoker will serve as title sponsor of the Madrid series. Triton and the company continue to collaborate on live events after announcing a deal in March.

With the Madrid stop, that partnership is now coming to fruition. The site offers exclusive online satellites for the series, allowing average players a shot at these huge Triton buy-in events.

Also in Madrid, high-end jewelry manufacturer Jacob & Co debuts as the tour’s official timekeeper. This is the company’s first foray into the world of poker.

For Triton winners, the brand is developing a limited-edition collaborative timepiece with a design that encompasses the poker world.

“This achievement is a significant step forward for Triton Series in its mission to continually innovate live poker events, offering exclusive and always-thrilling live poker entertainment to players and fans at these exotic locations,” the company notes in a news release of the partnership.

Phil Ivey’s return to live poker highlighted the Cyprus series. He scored the title in a $75,000 Short Deck event for $1.2 million.

In Madrid, poker fans hoping to check out the action can expect more than 10 hours of live daily coverage. That spans across 13 days on Triton’s official media channels.

“The success and reach in Cyprus recently showed us that the quality of our content is a testament to our commitment in continuing to grow our Triton community,” Triton head of business development Chng Zhen Wei said. “We appreciate the ongoing support of our partners and fans in expanding the Triton Series.”

The second straight short deck tournament saw Hong Kong’s Winfred Yu emerge as the winner. Well-known among Asian poker circles, Yu topped a field of 41 entries for a  $1 million top prize.

This was the second Triton title of his career after winning a short deck event in Montenegro in 2019. Yu has a reputation as the go-to organizer of high stakes cash games in Asia. Many of the region’s top pros took to the stage to celebrate with the winner.

 Malaysia’s Ivan Leow took the runner-up spot for $699,500 and Danny Tang, of Hong Kong, took third for $447,000. 

* Note: There was no fourth event scheduled, per Triton custom.

Event 3: $75,000 Short Deck

Ivey showed his poker skills in this one, topping a field of 51 entries for his second Triton title. This score brought a payday of almost $1.2 million, the largest share of a $3.7 million prize pool.

Away from the live poker scene for a few years, the 45-year-old certainly made his presence known in Cyprus. Along with the title, Ivey made two other final table appearances. That fact wasn’t lost on fellow poker Hall of Famer Daniel Negreanu.

“You love to see it!” he noted on Twitter. “One of his biggest strengths has always been figuring out new games faster than everyone else, and it appears he gets short deck.”

That appears to be true and Ivey’s previous Triton win also came in this format in Montenegro in 2018. In this week’s win, he eliminated five of his final six opponents.

 Malaysia’s Kiat Lee finished runner-up for $840,000 with Mike Watson, of Canada, finishing third for $538,000.

Event 2: $100,000 NLHE Eight-handed

The Triton action ramped up to a six-figure buy-in for this one with Dutchman Teun Mulder coming out on top. He prevailed over a field of 69 entries, which produced a prize pool of $6.6 million.

Mulder won $1.9 million for his efforts after beating his best friend and countryman Tom Vogelsang heads-up. The two even predicted their own heads-up battle.

“We talked about it,” Mulder said. “We said today it’s going to be the Dutch guys first and second.”

Vogelsang grabbed almost $1.4 million for runner-up and Jake Schindler, of the United States, won $903,000 for third.

Event 1: $50,000 NLHE Six-handed

Online poker superstar Andras Nemeth, of Hungary, kicked off the series with a nice win for $1.1 million. He topped a field of 82 entries that produced a $3.9 million prize pool.

“It wasn’t easy,” Nemeth said. “The final table was really tough. I was a little bit nervous at the start and I made a couple of … well, it was close but I made some not good decisions. Then when we got short stacked, it was all about who was going to win the first major all-in.”

Nemeth found himself heads-up against friend and fellow Hungarian Laszlo Bujtas for the title. Bujtas added $770,000 for second place.

“It was surreal to play for the first time and to then get heads-up against one of my best friends in poker,” Nemeth said. “I had to pinch myself.”

South Korea’s Tommy Kim placed third for $503,800 and Ivey finished fourth for $387,100.]

Triton strikes deal with GGPoker

The Cyprus series was the first tournament series run after the tour announced a deal with GGPoker. The poker operator becomes Triton’s official online poker sponsor.

The two companies are promising online qualifiers to some of the biggest events in poker. Could a Triton online high roller series also be heading to GGPoker? No word on that, but it doesn’t seem out of the realm of possibility. 

GG also grabs a presence in a popular live poker series with the deal. Triton next heads to Spain from May 13-25 for more high-stakes action.
