Linus Loeliger Leads as Triton London £25K Needs an Extra Day

Triton Poker Super High Roller Series London

The opening event of the partypoker LIVE Triton Super High Roller Series London was the £25,000 Six-Handed No-Limit Hold’em Turbo that was scheduled to crown its champion after a single day’s action. After a full day’s play, only seven players remain and it is Switzerland’s online legend Linus "LLinusLLove" Loeliger who returns to action on Sunday 4th August as the tournament’s chip leader.

A field of 117 players created a £2,925,000 prize pool that is being shared among the top 17 finishers.

Loeliger’s 5,055,000 stack is worth 51 big blinds when the action resumes on Aug. 4. The Swiss pro recently finished third in the HK$250,000 No-Limit Hold’em 8-Handed Turbo at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series event in Montenegro for HK$1,720,000 ($219,262). Now he is hoping to go a couple of places deeper in this London-based tournament.

Canada’s Luc Greenwood (4,400,000) and Timothy Adams (4,090,000) are the only other players with more than four million chips. They are joined by Australia’s Kahle Burns (3,755,000), Cary Katz (2,540,000) representing the United States, and Malaysian star Michael Soyza (2,055,000). Elior Sion of the United Kingdom brings up the rear with 1,500,000 chips.

Each of the seven returning players is guaranteed to pad their bankroll with at least £122,300 after the money bubble burst on Jul. 31. With £690,000 awaiting the champion, none of those players will be happy with the smaller amount.

A whole host of stellar names failed to reach the top 17 places and endured an expensive day instead. Triton Poker High Roller series regulars Mikita Badziakouski, Tom Dwan, Justin Bonomo, and Isaac Haxton busted before the money, as did the likes of British duo Toby Lewis and Talal Shakerchi. Tennis legend Boris Becker participated as well but came up short, as did recent World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winners Luke Schwartz and Stephen Chidwick who also failed to add a Triton title to the gold they secured in Las Vegas.

Play has been suspended until Aug. 4 as Soyza, Adams, and Katz are set to compete in the largest buy-in poker tournament of all-time.

The Biggest Buy-in Poker Tournament Ever

The £1,050,000 buy-in Triton Million shuffles up and deals on Aug. 1 at 1:00 p.m. BST (8:00 a.m. ET) and sees a mixture of elite professionals and high roller recreational players create a 54-strong field.

PokerNews’ live reporting team is on the ground throughout this record-breaking event, so be sure to tune in and see who walks away with what should be the biggest first-place prize ever awarded.
