Hand #11: Stephen Chidwick looked down at {q-Spades}{6-Spades} in the small blind and called for 120,000. Dan Smith held {q-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} and checked before the flop fell {k-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{2-Clubs}.

Hand #13: Kenney raised to 250,000 from under the gun with {5-Spades}{5-Clubs} and Chidwick three-bet to 75,000 from the cutoff with {q-Spades}{9-Spades}. Kenney called, and the flop fell {a-Spades}{5-Hearts}{2-Clubs}. Kenney checked, Chidwick bet 400,000 and the former called.

The {4-Diamonds} hit the turn, and both players checked before the {8-Diamonds} appeared on the river. Kenney bet 465,000 and Chidwick folded.

Hand #14: Alfred DeCarolis called for 120,000 from under the gun with {a-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}, and Dan Smith called in the cutoff with {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Timothy Adams looked down at {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} in the small blind and raised to 760,000. DeCarolis called, and Smith folded before the flop fell {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}.

Adams bet 450,000 and DeCarolis called. The {6-Hearts} hit the turn, and Adams continued for 575,000. DeCarolis called again, and Adams checked when the {4-Spades} was revealed on the river. DeCarolis moved all in for 4,450,000 and Adams folded 30 seconds later before DeCarolis showed the bluff.

Hand #15: Smith moved all in for 2,005,000 from the hijack with {5-Hearts}{5-Clubs} and won the pot.

MartianNews • Level 18: 60,000-120,000, 120,000 ante

Hand #6: Alfred DeCarolis limped from under the gun, Aaron Zang called on the button and Bryn Kenney checked his big blind.

The flop came down {7-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, action checked to DeCarolis, he bet 200,000 and his opponents both folded.

Hand #7: Dan Smith opened to 240,000 from the hijack and Zang three-bet to 725,000. Smith folded and Zang took down the pot.

Hand #8: Stephen Chidwick opened to 250,000 in early position, DeCarolis called in the small blind and Vivek Rajkumar defended his big blind.

The dealer spread out {4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} on the flop and the action checked to Chidwick who bet 215,000. DeCarolis and Rajkumar folded, sending the pot to Chidwick.

Hand #9: DeCarolis raised to 275,000 from the button, Rajkumar called from the small blind and Bill Perkins moved all in for 1,580,000. Rajkumar called and the two tabled their hands.

Vivek Rajkumar: {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}

The flop came down {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Spades} and Perkins was still in the lead with his nines. An {8-Diamonds} peeled off on the turn and Rajkumar needed a four to take down the pot. The {j-Spades} river changed nothing as Perkins secured the first double of the day.

Hand #10: Zang raised to 240,000 from early position, DeCarolis called in the cutoff and the dealer fanned out {k-Hearts}{q-Spades}{q-Clubs} on the flop.

Both players checked and the {q-Hearts} hit the felt as a turn card. Both players checked again to the {4-Diamonds} river. Zang checked to DeCarolis who bet 400,000, Zang released his hand and DeCarolis took down the pot.

Triton Million - A Helping Hand for Charity Set to Award £19million Top Prize!

History is to be made in London today, as one man will walk away from the center stage with the single-largest prize ever awarded in tournament poker!

The Triton Million - A Helping Hand for Charity has been a year in the making, and now just eight players remain to don their best suits and make their way to the Feature Table at the London Hilton Park Lane to battle for the £19,000,000 first-place prize.

Leading the way at the top of the chip counts is Vivek Rajkumar (18,000,000). Despite staying in the shadows of the live tournament poker scene over the past five years, has shown he is still able to cut it at the highest level. Rajkumar is #1 on the India all-time money list and could put his name among the world's top #15 with a victory.

Among the chasing pack is a trio of high-stakes regulars and two surprise packages.

Stephen Chidwick (9,790,000), Timothy Adams (5,735,000) and Bryn Kenney (5,540,000) have a wealth of experience to their names and will no doubt be looking to make that count on the biggest stage possible.

Recreational players Alfred DeCarolis (5,455,000) and Aaron Zang (5,060,000) have displayed their fighting nature over the past two days to navigate through the field for a shot at the title. Both players have already secured by far their biggest live cash but now have the opportunity to cause an upset.

Completing the stellar line-up is American pro Dan Smith (2,350,000) and his compatriot businessman Bill Perkins (2,000,000). Smith is the only player at the table who has experience in previously cashing and playing at a $1m buy-in event final table after he secured third place in the 2018 $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop.

Interestingly, four of the final eight ended Day 1 in the top six chip counts with Perkins, Smith, Adams, and Zang continuing their momentum.

Today's action also brings about the possibility of a brand-new all-time money list leader. Kenney (#4), Smith (#9) and Chidwick (#16) could all leap above Justin Bonomo's $45,014,707 at the top if they seal the title, while Kenney can also take the accolade with a second-place finish.
