After a two-year pandemic-induced hiatus and some stop and starts on returning, Triton Poker announced on Wednesday that the high roller series is back this spring.
Triton Poker Cyprus Special Edition runs April 2-7 at Merit Hotel and Casino in North Cyprus. The series will once again feature massive prize pools and some of the biggest names in poker. A philanthropic effort also returns as part of the nosebleed stakes action as well.
“As our aim has always been to bridge the gap between the poker community and the world through philanthropy, it is essential that our tournaments make a comeback to aid this process,” Triton CEO Andy Wong said in a news release. “We look forward to welcoming all our familiar and loved players who have waited patiently for this day.”
What to expect from the series
Triton is known for drawing in well-heeled players and businessmen for some big-money action. The Cyprus Special Edition will feature four events with No Limit Hold’em and Short Deck as the featured format.
Here’s a look at the complete schedule (note that there is no official Event No. 4 per Triton custom):

Checking out the Triton action
Along with the big money for winners, the Triton series is also part of the PokerGO Tour. All players in the money will qualify for leaderboard points.
Triton incorporates high-end video production for poker fans at home to check out the action. The series will once again be offering Twitch streaming coverage for players around the globe.
The last Triton Series was held in August 2019 at Kings Casino in the Czech Republic. Tony G scored a nice win in that series, winning the €25,000 Short Deck for €264,308.
Orpen Kisacikoglu also took down the €100,000 NLHE event for €1.2 million. In 2021, the series announced upcoming events in Sochi, Russia, and Bali, Indonesia. However those were canceled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
There hasn’t been an update on those events yet. Poker in Russia may not be possible at this point considering the country’s recent invasion of Ukraine. However nothing official has been announced in regards to the Triton Sochi event.
Many players and fans will be pleased to see the Triton action return to North Cyprus.
