The last event of the 2018 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro, HK$1,000,000 (US$127,000) buy-in Short Deck Ante-Only Event, attracted a field of 103 entries which created a massive prize pool of HKD96,902,400 (~$12,344,397)!

Winning just a poker tournament, and you get a fortune.
For real.
With 3.5 millions from a single win, what else you want.
You can even say, that you retire from the game Smile

It is incredible that the huge prize tournament took place in Montenegro. A few days ago was another tournament here in this little country with good prizes. I think these tournaments are better than in Czech at Rozvadov.2018 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro is a very beautiful series and organizers deserve all the respect. Congratulations to all the players who have finished in cash.

Big congratulations must go out to Jason Koon for topping the field of 103 entrants from all over the world to take home €3,579,914!
I don't think I have ever played a short deck ante-only tournament. Are there more actions at the table?

Many congratulations to Jason Koon on winning this massive event and the huge first prize. Just looking at the players' on the final table tells you just how tough this event must have been to win

Jason Kun of course played wonderfully .... to beat such poker monsters as Phil Ivey and Rui Cao it says about his cool game .... and of course winning 3.5 million euros is a very cool result .... Triton is promoting its trademark and does it very aggressively .... I first heard about him and such a super tournament

Yes this is very big buyin woth 127.000 of dollars but of course to win 3.5 millions of dollars os some amazing win. You can easy stop work and do nothing in life only play poker and relax in beach, don't know where.to.have 127.000 for buyin
 Mober5/23/2018 3:13:16 PM GMT
The buy in was huge indeed.
Most of the poker players have wished for a single win of that money in their life,
and some others are buying in with that amount Smile
Just keep dreaming and it may happen at some point.

jeffaboy has started good with some good wins and he is still young.
So you never know, we may see him in a couple of years buying for that Smile

 godoy5/28/2018 10:30:34 PM GMT
what will a person do after winning a prize of this size will be taking a trip or going to take a poker vacation I would certainly do that and say more if you win a hefty challenge I would want to stay well away from jopo for a good tempe
