Day 1 Completed
Day 1 Completed
The Triton Super High Roller has ended with nine players remaining after 14 entrants took part after a delayed start.
The event was due to begin at 5 p.m. local time, but when the clocks started, there were no players registered. Germany players Dietrich Fast and Koray Aldemir were the first two players to register at around 7 p.m. local time, but it was until 9:30 p.m. that the first five players got the play underway after Johannes Becker, Chin Wei Lim, and Wai Kin Yong all registered.
Once the news got out that the event had started more players joined with the likes of Niall Farrell, Leong Chan Wai, Abraham Passat and Timothy Adams, who jumped straight from the High Roller to the Super, buying in.
Dietrich Fast and Adams were the only two players to reenter after busting and had a contrasting end of the day. Adams was able to build on his second bullet and bagged 558,000, whereas Fast exited once more in the final hand of the day against Manig Loeser when his ace-king lost to pocket sevens.
Loeser (782,000) will take the chip lead into the final day with Adams and Phil Ivey (517,500) completing the top-three chip counts.
Play will get underway at 1 p.m. local time, with late registration open until the end of the first break, at approximately 3:30 p.m. as they battle for a share of the RUB120,000,000 (approximately $2,000,000) guarantee.
PokerNews will be back with all the Day 2 coverage as the Triton Super High Roller champion is crowned.
In the final hand of the day, Dietrich Fast raised from the button and saw Manig Loeser three-bet. Fast who had around 100,000 moved all in, and Loeser called.
Loeser hit a set of the flop and improved to a full house on the turn to leave Fast, who was on his second bullet, drawing dead as Loeser took the overall chip lead.
Fast will have the option to buy-in for his third bullet during the first three levels of play tomorrow if he so wishes.
Table Short stack Koray Aldemir got all his chips into the middle preflop, and his fellow German Dietrich Fast was happy to call.
Fast's better pair held as Aldemir, who registered the tournament alongside Fast early on in the day, was the next player to depart the Triton Super High Roller field.
Timothy Adams was able to build his stack slightly after losing a massive hand and Niall Farrell not long ago, but has now bust and decided to reenter the Super High Roller.
Devan Tang raised to 10,000 from under the fun and Dietrich Fast three-bet to 30,000. When the action folded back around to Tang he four-bet enough to put Fast all in and was met with a call.
Tang flopped two pair to take the lead and Fast was unable to catch up. The German was sent to the rail and immediately reentered.
Koray Aldemir raised to 8,500 from the cutoff and saw his compatriot Johannes Becker three-bet to 22,000 on the button. Both players in the blinds got out the way, and with the decision, back on Aldemir, he thought for a minute. As he approached needing to use a time bank card, he moved all in and saw Becker quickly fold as the duo shared a smile and a laugh as Aldemir stacked his chips.
The board was down with Timothy Adam all in for just 20,000 in the big blind. Phil Ivey was up against Dietrich Fast for the side pot and bet big for 150,000 with . Fast had the best hand with pocket kings but was unsure over his decision. Fast had thrown four time bank cards while thinking over his options before he folded.
Adams had the best hand with pocket sixes to treble up, and Ivey took the side pot.
