Triton Names Players for $200K Coin Rivet; GGPoker Qualifiers for Mediterranean Poker Party

Tournament organizers recently announced some of the players for the upcoming Coin Rivet Invitational, a major tournament with a mixture of high-stakes poker pros and recreational players.

A few big names expected to play in the event include recent World Series of Poker Main Event winner Espen Jorstad and poker legend Phil Ivey. The $200,000 No Limit Hold’em single re-entry event is part of the Luxon Pay Mediterranean Poker Party and the Triton Poker Series Cyprus.

The Coin Rivet runs Sept. 10-12 at the Merit Royal Diamond in North Cyprus, with the overall Triton Poker festival running  from Sept. 5-19.

“Every player that plays a Triton Poker Series event is a VIP and we are looking forward to this new event in the schedule and returning to Merit Resorts for the opening of their brand new poker room and hotel,” Triton CEO Andy Wong said in a news release. “All the action will be live streamed in true Triton Series style by our great team.”

How does the $200K invitational work?

Those tuning in to check out the Coin Rivet on Triton YouTube channel will find a different kind of tournament, teaming rec players with pros. On Day 1, poker pros and recreational players are separated before the fields are merged on Day 2.

While pairs aren’t playing as teams, each pro needs a rec player to also take part. The event is capped at 32 recreational and 32 professionals. Triton officials have already released some names who will join the action.

Jorstad will partner with Rob Yong and Paul Phua is linked with Phil Ivey. Las Vegas casino executive and Poker Hall of Famer Bobby Baldwin will also join the action. The 1978 WSOP Main Event winner will partner with Ben Lamb, 2011 WSOP Player of the Year.

UK businessman Paul Newey is also among the confirmations, playing with reigning Irish Open champion Steve O’Dwyer.

“The pairings of the recreational players with the professionals is generating interest in the poker community and the early confirmations for the event look encouraging – people are interested in who pairs up and which pairing might be considered the favorites to win,” Luxon Pay business development director Neil Barrett said.

A few more pairings for the event include:

  • Wai Kin Yong and poker pro  Linus Loeliger
  • Elton Tsang and poker pro  Mustapha Kanit
  • Sosia Jiang and GGPoker ambassador Jason Koon
  • Zhenglong Zhou and high stakes regular Stephen Chidwick
  • Phachara Wongwichit and online poker star Mikita Badziakouski

Other Triton Cyprus highlights & qualifying online

Beyond the Coin Rivet Invitational, players will find numerous other major tournaments. That includes $100,000 main events in NLHE and Short Deck. The full schedule includes other Hold’em, Short Deck, and Pot Limit Omaha tournaments as well, with buy-ins beginning at $25,000.

Beyond the well-heeled pros in the action, Triton’s GGPoker partnership is allowing online players a shot at entering the field. Players can attempt to qualify for as little as $25.

Having more online qualifiers may bring even more to the series and offers a chance to expand prize pools.
