The high stakes Triton Poker Series action is set to return in March at Casino Sochi in Russia. The Super High Roller Series Russia (presented by Luxon Pay) offers players four Triton events from March 1-6.
The announcement comes after the company recently had to postpone the planned Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Bali, Indonesia. The new Russian event offers players a chance to get back in the action.
Poker fans also have the opportunity to watch plenty of high stakes action with the streamed coverage online.
“We know that these tournaments are valued favorites, and we thank our fans, partners and team for their continued support as we stay on course with providing our fans significant live coverage of our exclusive games,” Triton Series CEO Andy Wong said in a news release.
What to expect from the series
Players jumping in the action will have four events to check out. A $50,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’em tournament kicks off the series on March 2.
All Triton events run alongside the PokerGO Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB) series. The $250,000 SHRB event highlights that series and should attract some of the biggest names in poker.
Nine other SHRB events are also on the schedule with buy-ins ranging from $25,000 to $100,000.
Those events run March 6-14. All the Triton action will be streamed live on the company’s official YouTube and Twitch channels. Here’s a look at the four Triton events planned for Casino Sochi.
Date Event Tournament Buy-in
March 1 1 NLHE Six-Max $50,000
2 NLHE Eight-Max $100,000
March 4 3 Short Deck $75,000
** no fourth event scheduled March 5
5 Short Deck $125,000
Triton delays Bali tour stop
The series may be returning to Russia, but series organizers recently had to postpone the series planned for Bali for Feb. 17 through March 1.
The event was to be Triton’s first of 2022. The recent surge in Omicron infection rate in Asia, however, brought heightened travel restrictions during the ongoing pandemic. Triton organizers chose to postpone the series to a later date.
“We’ve been incredibly humbled by the interest our first 2022 event of the season has garnered, however disappointed that current circumstances impedes us from hosting and broadcasting the live Bali tournament,” Wong said.
“The health and safety of our players, partners and team is always a priority and we look forward to returning to host these exclusive live tournaments to our audiences anytime, anywhere with the high-level poker entertainment.”
Triton officials are working through possible alternatives to supplement the absence of the season’s first event. The tour should release an update soon.
