Manila, Macau and Montenegro set to host the Triton Super High Roller Series in 2017.

One year ago, Fedor Holz was busy taking down the first ever Triton Super High Roller Series, for a 1st prize of $3,072,748.

After the success of the inaugural event, two additional events were hosted in 2016. The winning formula has remained unchanged, with global stars of poker lining up with Chinese VIP’s in some of the most exciting tournaments ever seen in Asia.

The last edition of the festival in November saw Malaysia’s Yong Wai Kin topping a field of 62 entries in the HKD$500,000 Main Event, with Daniel ‘jungleman’ Cates taking down the HKD$200,000 buy in event. The tournament action is always supplemented by intensive high stakes cash games action.

While speaking to Somuchpoker at the end of last series, Richard Yong confirmed his ambitions for the series and hinted that he planned to bring the series to new horizons in 2017.
