Triton Poker brings the $1,325 million buy-in event to London

The hype is justified, and new records are to be expected: Triton Poker has announced the tournament with the highest buy-in ever.

The Triton Poker Super High Roller Series will be playing for the first time at the Grand Ballroom of Hilton Park Lane in London from July 31st to August 7th. Not surprising at Triton Poker, the schedule is bursting at the seams with tournaments that require a high entry fee – buy-ins start at £25,000.

Apart from the fact that this is the first time the tour has stopped in the British capital, the stop is particularly worth mentioning because of the main event. The Triton Million – A Helping Hand for Charity event runs from 1 to August 3rd and boasts a massive buy-in of £1,050,000 ($1,325,351/€1,178,798). This even exceeds the €1,000,000 due in October 2016 to participate in the Big One For One Drop in Monte Carlo.

The event is a purely invitational tournament, with the chance to invite well-known and successful businessmen and women from all over the world who have developed a passion for poker. Any invited player can register a guest for the event, so there are likely to be a few poker pros involved.

£1,000,000 from each entry will be added to the prize pool, and the remaining £50,000 will be entirely donated to charity. Triton Poker expects the winner of the event to win a higher prize than any other player in a single tournament.

Antonio Esfandiari currently holds the record for the highest prize in a single tournament. At the Big One for One Drop in 2012, he survived a field of 48 players and earned a $18,346,673 win bonus.

Triton Poker makes everything new

‘THE FIELD IS DIVIDED BETWEEN POKER PROS AND AMATEUR PLAYERS. AT THE BEGINNING OF THE FIRST DAY THE TWO GROUPS WILL NOT COMPETE AGAINST EACH OTHER.’

For the first time since poker tournaments have been held, the field will be split between poker pros and amateur players. At the beginning of the first game day (out of a total of three), players will be divided into two groups until the dinner break, which will not play against each other. After the 6th level, the groups meet and will finish the rest of the tournament like a classic freezeout tournament.

For prestige reasons, players may not wear sunglasses, hats or hoodies. They are also prohibited from covering the neck or any part of the body above the neck area. Also, the nine players are expected to appear in suits at the Final Table, just as they did at the Big One for One Drop in Monte Carlo three years ago.

Players will enter the tournament with 1,000,000 chips. Each level will last an hour and will be played with a Big Blind Ante and a Shot Clock that gives 20 seconds to consider before the flop. On the flop, the time bench is increased to 25 seconds, on the turn and river to 30 seconds.
