Triton’s 2019 top hands announced and new events scheduled; Jeju first up

Top hands of 2019

A few days ago, Triton poker released the Top 5 Hands of 2019... a year of incredible bluffs, calls, and of course, bad beats.

Triton Poker HOTY2019: Chidwick vs Rajkumar


The first of Triton’s top hands involves High Roller superstar Stephen Chidwick and Vivek Rajkumar. Facing an all-in shove from an aggressive opponent, Chidwick has a tough call to make on the river.

The second hand involves a typically boisterous Tony G using his chips as a weapon against his illustrious opponents, only to find more resistance then he expected on the river. Will he be able to make the right decision though?

Triton Poker HOTY2019: Sam Trickett vs Stephen Chidwick


In the third hand, we see Sam Trickett ply out a fascinating hand against Bryn Kenney and Stephen Chidwick. Trickett pushes out a weak looking bet on the turn, causing Kenney to attempt a steal. Both players walk into the flush of Chidwick, but Trickett clearly hasn’t read the script for how this hand is supposed to end.

Triton Poker HOTY2019: Jungleman vs Mikita


In the fourth hand, Daniel ‘jungleman’ Cates calls a shove in a short-deck game and is happy to see what Mikita Badziakouski turns over, but the players agree to run it twice. It always hurts to lose the first one of course, and the second one isn’t exactly plain sailing either.

The fifth hand sees another short-deck hand unfold, with three players going to the flop. It’s a serious action flop, and the chips soon pile in. Badziakouski is up against Tang in what is the ultimate cooler situation.

Three new events announced

In addition to the top hands of 2019, Triton have dropped a huge exciting piece of news too.

Three Triton events are written into the schedule for 2020 already, and Jeju in South Korea is first on the menu. Triton Jeju will run between February 10th and 22nd before the series heads over to Montenegro between May 4th and 18th.

Finally, Triton heads back to London on July 29th with the series set to run until August 13th.

Details on Jeju

The first Triton event in Jeju saw five events take place, with that figure growing to seven. 2020 will top that again, with 11 action-packed super high rollers tournaments on the schedule. The two most eye-catching events will undoubtedly be the HK$1 million Main Event and the HK$1 million Short Deck Main Event.

Here are the highlights from the schedule:
