Triton Million Readies for a Launch
The Triton Million London £1-million buy-in event is shaping up nicely with 22 confirmed names for the upcoming 3 day event, which starts on August 1. Triton Poker is the host of one of the better-known high-roller event hosts in the world, and this time their tournament will take place in London Hilton on Park Lane.
The Triton Million London will be one of the more expensive poker tournaments to date, featuring a buy-in of £1.05 Million. With still a month to go, probably most of the names of participants have been revealed by now and they feature quite a few noteworthy entries, including Sam Trickett, Tom Dwan and Daniel Cates.
Bryn Kenney is also cited as one of the most likely contenders for the big pot of money, with Kenney amassing over $9 million in winnings this year. Kenney also has an ambition to distinguish himself as the world’s best player.
He is excited to have a shot at Justin Bonomo, the “world’s most winning player”, who has amassed significant wealth out of playing poker. According to The Hendon Mob, a database dedicated to tracking players’ results and earnings, Bonomo stands at $45,004,318 with his best live event fetching him an additional $10,000,000.

Bryn Kenney is ranked the world’s 4th richest poker player, but his all-time best live cash action is $3,062,513. Surprisingly, both players are based in the United States, a country which hosts plenty of opportunities to play live, but it isn’t the most friendly country when it comes to online poker.
Cary Katz, who will be facing Kenney in the Triton Million event has said that Kenney is likely world’s best NL Hold’em player right now. Katz definitely knows how to give compliments and given Kenney’s own high self-esteem, this is going to go a long way in boosting his determination to win.
The Triton Million Event Threatens Bonomo’s Dominance
Triton Million seems to be an event that is not just about the money. High-rollers seem determined to dethrone Bonomo. This is where David Peters comes in as well. Peters is at $33,136,076 winnings so far and his name comes to mind when you ask yourself the question who the next world leader in poker could be. Peters has been invited by Stanley Choi.
Meanwhile more experienced players like Antonio Esfandiari and Sam Trickett who have played in $1 million events in the past will also take their seat at the Triton Million tables.
Remember that we mentioned Rick Salomon? You may have not heard of him as a professional, but Salomon is a top contender for the big pot of money, starting on July 31.
