Collaboration starts in Montenegro this May as Team partypoker’s Jason Koon eyes more high roller success
partypoker LIVE has agreed a deal to come on board as tour partner of the prestigious Triton Super High Roller Series festivals, starting in Montenegro this May.
partypoker LIVE will enjoy branding exposure at all Triton events as part of the tie-up, while the two outfits will join forces to deliver quality content across the tour. Triton Poker is renowned for its high-quality production values, and its streams regularly see some of the game’s biggest high rollers battle with businessmen for millions in some of the world’s most exclusive locations.
Montenegro’s Maestral Casino & Resort will play host to the next upcoming Triton event between May 5 and May 17 to launch the partnership, a venue where Team partypoker’s own Jason Koon has enjoyed more success than anybody in recent times. The American amassed over $12M in earnings throughout 2018 as he booked his most lucrative year to date at the tables, highlighted by a ‘HK$1M Short-Deck Ante-Only’ win at the Maestral Casino for a career-best $3,579,836 in April.
The victory was one of four Triton Super High Roller final table appearances by Koon during the course of the year at events held in Montenegro and Jeju, South Korea.
Koon said: “When it comes to playing live poker tournaments there is nothing like going to one of Triton’s stops. The action is endless, the stakes are the highest in the world and the players are treated with an experience second to none.
“I signed with partypoker because I truly believed in their direction and their vision of a brighter future in poker. partypoker and Triton partnering up is another giant leap forward for the high rollers and for the poker world in general. I could be biased because I ran really well last time, but Montenegro maybe my favourite poker stop in the world. I really look forward to going back there and playing again.”
Among the 10-strong Triton Series Montenegro schedule is a host of Short Deck events, following partypoker’s recent move to launch its own online version for the dotcom market.
Commenting on the partnership, President of partypoker LIVE, John Duthie said: “This is such a great and potentially rewarding partnership! When I first saw Triton’s events and the quality of their streaming, I just knew we could work really well together. You can just tell that they see things the same way as us and that it’s not all ‘business’. This shared love of the game will create something really, really special and I can’t wait to see the outcome!”
Richard Yong, founder of the Triton Poker Series said: “This is a great and natural collaboration and another big step forward for the Triton Poker Series. We look forward to them kicking off as a tour partner in Montenegro and expect their pros to put in the usual strong performances! Maybe someone can stop Jason this time though!”
