Backed by Partypoker and part of the Asian company’s push to revive the high stakes scene, Triton London will cost £1.05 million to enter.

Dwarfing anything the capital has seen before, the exclusive event will take place between August 1 and 3 inside London’s Park Lane Hilton.

After details of the latest Triton event went live, speculation as to who would play was rife. With the buy-in taking poker to new heights (as seen in the video above), only those with deep pockets or backers can play.

What’s more, Triton bosses told fans that this would be an invite-only tournament. Poker pros and business figures would be on the list but no names were announced.

Fast-forward a few weeks and we now know 22 entrants. Posting the information on Instagram, Triton has revealed the current list of official and personal invites.

Indeed, as part of the deal, the invitees are allowed to bring a guest. While there is no stipulation that they have to back their guests financially, it’s likely they’ll have a stake in them.

Already the list of players is enticing. As well as familiar faces such as Dwan, Koon and the UK’s own Chidwick, the likes of Phua and Cao are known to be action players.

Something for Everyone

To create one of the largest prizepools of all time, more people will need to find the £1.05 million entrance fee. However, even at this stage, the winner will likely take home £10 million.

As well as making the rich richer, Triton London will continue poker’s tradition of giving to charity. £50,000 from each buy-in will go to a worthy cause, meaning more than £1 million has already be donated.

For poker fans, Triton London will cap off another summer of exciting action. As well as GUKPT events and the record-breaking Goliath, railbirds will get to see the game’s best descend on London for a history-making event.
