Antonius Lands The Win In Event 1

The first event is already in the bag with the talented Finn Patrik Antonius adding the Event 1 Super High Roller Series title to his CV.

He will now be able to be featured alongside some of the other very famous winners of past Triton Poker events who adorn the tournament room walls.

Antonius fended off a quality final table to claim the $825,000 prize, defeating a record field of 131 entries, all of whom paid the $25,000 buy in to compete.

“These are the nicest events that exist in poker…everything is top, top quality,” stated the Finn after landing his first tournament win in four years.

“They [the organisers] couldn’t do a better job. I’m happy to play these tournaments and I’m happy to win my first one. I’m happy, I’m happy.”

Alongside the trophy and winners cheque, the Finnish poker pro also is the first player in the series to land a Shamballa Jewel bracelet.

After some exciting action on the bubble, the final eight at the table were decided with Antonius joined by Fahredin Mustafov, Danny Tang, Kannapong Thanarattrakul, Viacheslav Buldygin, Ebony Kenney, Steve O’Dwyer and Seth Davis.

Davis was the first eliminated, when his Ace and Four of hearts was beaten by Mustafov’s pocket sixes, then next out was Thanarattrakul, whose King and Queen unsuited was bettered by Antonius pocket pair of fives.

The Finn also eliminated Buldygin next, with Kenney the next player eliminated when she ran into Mustafov holding pocket kings, with another landed on the flop.

Mustafov then eliminated Tang with a flush draw against Tang’s Q9 and Irishman O’Dwyer was out next after battling back from having a single chip to get back in the game, only to be knocked out in third place by Antonius.

Antonius and Mustafov then went heads up and a long battle looked likely, but in the end, it ended up as a three-hand showdown when Antonius flopped a straight to beat Mustafov’s pair of jacks.

Event 2 Down To Final Table

At the time of writing, the $30k NLH 6-Handed Event 2 of the series is now down to the final table with all six players remaining at the table.

Brazilian Yuri Dzivielski along with Benjamin Tollerene (US), Alex Keating (US), Ignacio Moron Chavero (Esp) and Triton Poker veterans Stephen Chidwick (GB) and Fedor Holz (Ger) remain in with a chance of the win and a shot at the $930,000 first prize.

A number of famous players made it through into the money for this event, but fell short of the final table amongst them the recent WSOP Main Event winner Espen Jorstad (15th), Jason Koon (12th), Sam Greenwood (9th) and the top female player was Razavi Melika (11th).

The action continues throughout the week with the main focus being on Saturday’s Coin Rivet Invitational, which sees a $200,000 buy in and on Wednesday’s $100,000 buy in NLH Main Event both of which will be contested over three days.
