News and results from the 2024 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro

The high stakes poker world in once again being treated to a fully live streamed two-week-long festival at the picturesque Maestral Hotel and Casino Resort in Budva, Montenegro. The Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro began a week ago when 2003 WSOP Main Event Champion Chris Moneymaker took the win in the opening event of the series for $903,000. The $25,000 tournament was the GG Million$ Live event, but it was the ACR pro who took down his first Triton Title and the third biggest cash of his life.

Triton Poker Series festivals are split into two distinct parts. The first part focuses on No Limit Hold’em games, with buy-ins starting at $25,000 and increasing each day, featuring a $125,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event. But that isn’t the end of the two hole-card part of the festival as a $200,000 Buy-In tournament brings the Hold’em part of the series to a close. For the remainder, the schedule switches to Pot Limit Omaha, with buy-ins starting off “small” at $30,000 and including a $100,000 PLO Main Event.

The $125,000 No Limit Hold’em Main Event Begins

The No Limit Hold’em part of the schedule is now nearly over, with the Main Event a $50,000 turbo and the $200,000 event left to play out. The $125,000 main event runs over two days on the 20th and 21st May, 2024 and will include a live streaming on the Triton Poker website throughout, starting at 2pm (CET).

Who’s Hot at the Triton Poker Series?

Who has been hot at the series so far and who are the likely protagonists that could make the final table? Well, truth is that the strength and experience in the field so is vast that that absolutely any of the players who are investing one eighth of a million dollars per bullet could hit the target and take away the multi-million dollar first prize.

But every poker festival has a narrative and that usually involves players who have performed consistently well during the week and have cashed one more than one occasion. This is not to suggest that anyone who has done well so far this series has any kind of god-given right to do well in the main event, or will do so. However, it is often the case that when a player is on fire, it’s hard to extinguish their flame and it would be no surprise to see someone who has already featured heavily in the results from the series so far do well in the main event.

Will Moneymaker Keep Printing?

The first event, the $25,000 GG Million$, was won by Chris Moneymaker and he went on to make the final of the mystery bounty just a few days later and also cashed in event three. In the $40,000 Mystery Bounty Moneymaker narrowly missing scooping his second title of the series, finishing in third place, but adding $311,000 to take his winnings for the series well over $1m.

GG Poker's GG Million$ was introduced as a live event at the Triton Poker Series in Vietnam in 2023 and has been a regular inclusion at every Triton Poker Series stop since. GG Poker also runs online satellites, enablling players to take a seat at the Triton Poker Series for much less than the $25,000 buy-in.

In-Form Players at the Trirton Poker Series

Ukrainian Igor Yaroshevskyy, who had finished in 3rd place in the $25,000 GG Millions is also having a good festival, improving on his result in the opening event by winning event six, the $50,000 ($35,000+$15,000) Bounty Quatro event, for $1,052,000, pipping Isaac Haxton to the title. 

In the same event Adrian Mateos finished 6th for $245,000 and he would also go on to taste victory at the series, winning the very next event, the $50,000 buy-in event seven, for $1,761,000. This was not however the biggest payout of the festival so far, as Bulgarian Alex Kulev took down the $100,000 buy-in event eight, to claim the first prize of $2,566,000. 

Yaroshevskyy, Mateos and Moneymaker are the most-in form players at the series so far, but a few other players are also making frequent cashes and final tables. These include Brian Kim, who was runner-up to Moneymaker in the GG Million$ and has gone on to cash a further three times. Nick Petrangelo is also having a good series, with three cashes, including one final table. Patrick Anotonius has not yet made any final tables, but is the most consistent performer of the series, with five cashes from the seven events that have taken place so far. 

It would be no surprise to see one of these poker champions featuring heavily in the story of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro Main Event.

Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro Schedule - Still to Come

In case you’re wondering what happened to event 4 and event 14, well they never existed, as the number 4 is considered to be unlucky in some Asian cultures, so it is deliberately left out. The same is true in many Las Vegas Hotels. You won’t find floors 40-49 at the Wynn or the Encore casinos. These are the tournaments that are left on the schedule:
