The 2022 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Cyprus is running in full swing with an action-packed 14-event schedule at the Merit Royal Diamond Hotel from September 5 to September 19.
One of the highlighted events of the series, the Event 6: $200K NLHE Coin Rivet Invitational, attracted 115 entries (including 25 re-entries) to collect $23 Million in the prize pool. These numbers made it the second biggest tournament ever held at the Triton Series after the 2019 Helping Hand for Charity event, with its £1 million buy-in.
Day 2 of the event ended with two-time WSOP bracelet winner Fedor Holz claiming the chip lead with a stack of 6,245,000. Linus Loeliger (5,885,000) and Karl Chappe-Gatien (3,095,000) rounded out the top three stacks.
Two Indians, Santhosh Suvarna and Amit Kanodia, were seen in action. Suvarna picked up his career-biggest score of $245,000 (₹1.95 Crores) in Event #5: $75K NLHE 8–Handed for an eighth-place finish, had invited series-opener champion, Patrik Antonius, to the invitational tourney. Both Indians failed to cross the money line, with Suvarna falling out in 20th place and Kanodia exiting in 26th place.
Day 2 Recap
The Triton Poker Series organizers had expected to attract around 20-25 partnerships between pros and recreational players. But the number continued to go up and up until the final moment that registration was permitted. The event ended with 45 partnerships, i.e., 90 players, of whom 25 were knocked out and re-entered.
After Day 2, only 16 players were left in contention. All the surviving players are assured at least $380,000, but they will be playing for the $5.5 Million top prize.
Ending the day in the chip lead was the German poker superstar Fedor Holz, with 6,245,000 in chips that make up for 78 blinds putting him in a slightly better position than the other top stacks in the field, Linus Loeliger (5,885,000 ~ 74 BBs) and Karl Chappe-Gatien (3,095,000 ~ 39 BBs), Elias Talvitie (2,225,000 ~ 28 BBs), Sam Grafton (2,165,000 ~ 27 BBs), Horace Wei (2,150,000 ~ 27 BBs), Theis Vad Hennebjerre (2,040,000 ~ 26 BBs), Tom Vogelsang (1,955,000 ~ 24 BBs), Daniel Cates (1,905,000 ~ 24 BBs), and Tony Guoga (1,760,000 ~ 22 BBs) rounded out the top ten stacks at the end of Day 2.
The top 17 places were assured a min-cash of at least $380,000. India’s Santhosh Suvarna (20th) and Amit Kanodia (26th) participated in the invitational event, but both fell short of the money.
