The Triton Super High Roller Series is one of the most popular poker tournament series which is played every year three times at different locations. Generally, the tournaments feature buy-ins of at least $10,000 and they attract some of the most successful poker players. The poker tournament series was established by Malaysian amateur player and businessman Richard Yong.

Back in 2017, The Triton Super High Roller Series included three events that were held in Budva, Macau, and Manilla. Then, there were over two thousand more events in July in 2018 in South Korea or more specifically its Jeju PROVINCE. The very first event of this series in 2019 was played in March also in the Jeju province. The second event of the tournament series for the last year took place in Budva and it featured Pot-Limit Omaha.

Then, in the early days of August 2019, the series’ Triton Million for Charity was held in the United Kingdom, London. This was the most expensive tournament of this kind to date as it featured a massive £1million buy-in. For better conversions, the winning bonus amounts are generally converted into US dollars, so the event’s buy-ins in US dollars are generally around $10,000 and bigger. Fedor Holz was the winner of the very first Triton Super High Roller Series event which was held in January of 2016 while the last winner of the event held in August of 2019 was Tony G.
