Dan "Jungleman" Cates entered Monday's final table of the $125,000 buy-in Triton Poker London Main Event. But it was Timothy Adams who claimed the $4,185,000 first place prize.

The Canadian poker pro won his second Triton Main Event, the first taking place in Jeju back in 2019 for $3,536,550. He now has over $36.5 million in live tournament cashes, according to Hendon Mob, $5.7 million coming in the current London series.

Stacked Final Table

When the final table began at 1 p.m. in London, Stephen Chidwick, Doug Polk, Isaac Haxton, and Cates were among those still standing out of the 151 original entrants.

Polk, who entered play fifth in chips, was a quick exit after losing most of his stack to Haxton with pocket eights against pocket 10's. The Upswing Poker founder would bust moments later when he ran into the pocket kings of Jean Norel Thorel and take ninth place ($422,500).

Lun Loon was next to go in eighth place ($510,000) after losing with a small pair to the slightly better small pair Chidwick held. James Chen ran into a rough one to bust in seventh place ($705,000) as his pocket kings ran into the pocket aces of Thorel, who was putting on quite a show at the final table.

That hand was quite sick, but the hand of the day involved an even more insane cooler. Juan Pardo raised to 400,000 with KK before Thorel three-bet to 1,000,000 with AA, the second time he was on the positive side of an aces versus kings situation at the final table.

But this hand was far from over when Chidwick looked down at AK and bumped it up to 2,300,000. Cates then found JJ and made a great fold. Action was then back on Pardo, but Thorel acted out of turn and announced "all in," which impacted Pardo's decision and he opted to make an even better lay down than Cates.

Thorel had over 7,000,000 chips and jammed all in, but Chidwick decided to make the call. The flop came out 496, followed by the 5 on the turn to lock up Thorel's double up. An 8 appeared on the river, not that it mattered.

Thorel had built up a monster stack following that wild hand. Pardo (sixth place for $970,000), Chidwick (fifth place for $1,260,000), and Haxton (fourth place for $1,582,000) would all soon bust, leaving the Main Event title up to Cates, Thorel, and Adams to decide.

Cates was out in front, but Adams would do some damage to his stack. "Jungleman" would eventually bust in third place ($1,940,000) when his QJ couldn't suck-out on Adams's pocket jacks.

Thorel, the chip leader, and Adams would then play some heads-up poker with a $1.3 million pay-jump at stake. It took very little time for the eventual champion to find a double, and then he finished it off by claiming his second Triton Poker title.

“I’m just lost for words because that was insane that I won this one,” Adams said in his post-game interview. “It was a battle heads up. Jean Noel, hats off to him. He is an insane competitor, super tough to play against.”
