Triton Poker Vietnam 2023 players to watch

In a field of poker’s superstars several players stand out in the competition to win the 13 events at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Hoi An, Vietnam.

Stephen Chidwick (England)

At the age of 33, Chidwick is currently fourth in the all-time poker winnings money list in an extraordinary rise in recent years.

Chidwick has won an extraordinary $45,176,631 in poker tournaments during his career and is a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, sweeping the $25,000 High Roller Pot Limit Omaha 8-Handed event in 2019.

His biggest ever single score actually came at a Triton event – the $1,050,000 buy in charity No Limit Hold’Em event in 2019 – where a fourth-place finish earned him $5,368,947.

Chidwick is currently leading Triton’s Player of the Year award with the Vietnam event and one yet-to-be announced stop to come.

Patrik Antonius (Finland)

Veteran Antonius has been a poker professional from the early 2000s but is still making waves to this day, recently being involved in the biggest ever cash game pot live streamed in the U.S – winning $1,978,000.

Antonius has been infrequent in the live poker scene recently but also won the last tournament he played in – the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em 8-handed event at the Triton Poker Super High Roller series in Cyprus last year.

Antonius’ biggest single score was the $3,153,551 he won at the Super High Roller bowl in Hong Kong in 2018.

Jason Koon (USA)

The 37-year-old has been another bolter in recent years and has worked his way up to sixth on the all-time poker winning list, earning a hefty $42,387,725.

Koon has two million-dollar scores in the past 12 months, winning the PokerGO Heads Up High Stakes duel versus Phil Hellmuth in December and the Triton Poker Super High Roller Short Deck main event in Madrid.

Koon’s biggest ever single win also came in a Triton event, as he collected $3,579,836 in the 2018 Short Deck main event in Montenegro.

Phil Ivey (USA)

One of the most recognizable poker stars of all-time, Ivey has been a fixture on the circuit for more than two decades.

Currently 10th on the all-time live poker earnings list with $38,281,867, the 46-year-old recently won a Triton event, collecting $387,000 at the $30,000 buy-in Short Deck event in Cyprus last year.

Ivey’s largest score came in Australia at the Aussie Millions 2014 where he picked up $3,582,753 in the $250,000 buy-in No Limit Hold’Em event.
