Triton Poker’s £1,050,000 buy-in “Triton Million – A Helping Hand for Charity Event” takes place in London from August 1-3, 2019
partypoker LIVE will team up with the Triton Poker Series to host the biggest buy-in event in poker history this summer.
The Triton Super High Roller Series London will run from July 31 to August 8, 2019 at London’s iconic Hilton Hotel in Park Lane. Headlining the nine-day festival is the ground-breaking “Triton Million – A Helping Hand for Charity Event”, scheduled for August 1-3. The £1,050,000 entry fee makes it the biggest buy-in ever seen for a single poker tournament, exceeding the previous record held for a buy-in by The Big One for One Drop that ran in Monte Carlo in 2016.
Each £1,000,000 buy-in for the event comes with an additional £50,000 charity donation, assuring several million pounds for a variety of worthwhile UK and Asian-based causes including ‘REG’ and the ‘Caring for Children Foundation’.
In a unique twist, the entire field will consist exclusively of either invited businessmen/recreational player, or professional poker players, who will be pooled solely against other players in their category for the opening six levels. After this time the two fields will merge and the tournament will play out to a winner as normal.
A committee will determine which players fall under the categories of “Recreational Player/Businessman” or “Guest Player/ Professional Poker Player”, with some of the game’s biggest high rollers expected in London for the £1M+ buy-in event. Tom Dwan, David Peters and Jason Koon, co-sponsored by partypoker and Triton Poker, will battle against eminent businessmen including Paul Phua and Bobby Baldwin in the British capital.
