The Triton Super High Roller Series made a stop at the beautiful island of Jeju in South Korea, where some of the best high-stakes players in the world were ready to hit the tables and make some big bucks. The series had only 4 scheduled tournaments and the HKD 500k 6-Max Event was one of them.
This tournament kicked off a couple of days back and 31-year old US poker pro David Peters ended victorious. The player has been a regular at Triton SHR tournaments over the years and his best live poker score of $2,699,752 also came in a 2016 Triton SHR tournament for finishing 2nd in Paranaque City.
Yesterday in Jeju however, Peters finally shipped his first ever Triton SHR live poker title, beating 39 entries and shipping the 6-max event for HKD 8,775,000 ($1,118,484). “It was up and down quite a bit. Towards the bubble, I was getting a little short. The chip lead was getting back and forth when we were three-handed,” said Peters, who did well to win the title amongst top players from around the world.
3-handed play took place between Peters, Stephen Chidwick and Steve O’Dwyer. These guys are some of the best high-stakes players in the world and among the 3 of them, they have more than $65 million in live poker winnings. Peters himself has taken his career earnings past the $22 million mark.
Only 4 players were paid out in this tournament and then all eyes turned towards the $1 million Short Deck Ante-Only event. Keep reading GutshotMagazine.com for an update on that tournament as well.
