Ivan Leow wins Triton SHR 500k Short Deck Event Poker

Ivan Leow wins Triton SHR 500k Short Deck Event

by Team Gutshot Posted on 26 Jul, 2018

The Triton Super High Roller Series in Jeju, South Korea kicked off on 23rd July, with four high-stakes events being scheduled for the series. The first event came to an end yesterday and it was American poker pro Nick Schulman who shipped that event for HKD 2,135,000 (~$272k).

HKD 500,000 Short Deck Ante-Only was the name of the tournament, with a 5x buy-in as compared to the first tournament that had a buy-in of HKD 100k. The high buy-in led to just 44 players registering to the tournament and at the end of the tournament, it was Malaysia’s Ivan Leow who lifted the trophy.

Leow has over $2 million in live cashes and made the final table twice in the last Triton SHR series in Montenegro. He also made headlines for shipping the High Roller for HKD 1,442,300 ($183,745) at the inaugural OPC Macau earlier this year. Just yesterday, he finished 7th in the Triton SHR Jeju opening event.

“It’s great. I’m very happy. I’ve only been playing short deck for a few months. I started with Wai Kin Yong and all the crew. We learn the game, it’s still a new game,” said Leow. The Malaysian isn’t a professional as yet, but he has been notching up some good scores in the last few months.

For this particular win, Leow pocketed a massive first-place prize of HKD 8,470,000 (~$1,079,586), recording his first 7-figure score and his biggest live cash by a long way. He became the biggest winner of this series so far and we’re set to see a couple of more big winners in the next few days in Jeju.

Final table results:

  1. Ivan Leow – 8,470,000
  2. Rui Cao – 5,280,000
  3. Jason Koon – 3,630,000
  4. Devan Tang – 2,640,000
  5. Tom Dwan – 1,980,000
