Triton Series Launches in Monaco: Bad Beat Ends Ivey's Invitational Journey
The new stage of the Triton Super High Roller Series launched in Monte Carlo and will continue until November 4. It started with one of the most expensive tournaments of the year – The Special Triton Invitational. The buy-in for this tournament was $210,000 and was paid by 73 participants, creating a prize pool of $14,600,000.
The peculiarity of this tournament is that it is played only by VIP players, who were divided into two categories: amateurs and professional players. On the first day, the groups played separately: amateurs (successful businessmen in general) competed with each other, and professionals with each other. In Day 2, everyone is already returning to the general grid of the tournament, so there is a mix at the tables.
According to the results of Day 1, 49 players turned out for the second day of the tournament, among which such stars as Phil Ivey, Patrick Antonius, Jason Koon are playing. The chip leader of the competition at the start of the second day was Hong Kong player Elton Tsang with 1,230,000 chips.
The game in the tournament Day 2 is happening right now, and you can follow the course of events through broadcasts on the official YouTube channel. In general, within the framework of the stage, 12 tournaments are planned, which will last until November 4.
Unfortunately, Phil Ivey did not play for long in the second day of the Invitational event. On the main feature table, viewers could see an offensive bad beat, as a result of which the professional left the game. The chip leader knocked him out, collecting a set of eights on the river.
