Triton Poker Super High Roller SeriesThe schedule for this year’s Triton Poker Super High Roller Series has been finally released. The popular high stakes tournament will hold its first event at the Landing Casino, Jeju Shinhwa World in South Korea from March 2 to 9 after successfully hosting the Triton Poker Series last year.

New events slated for this year include an HKD 250,000 + HKD 250,000 Short-Deck Bounty as well as an HKD 1,000,000 No-Limit Hold’em event.

The series kicks off with Day 1 of the HKD 250K buy-in Short Deck event on March 2, Saturday at 4:00pm. Day 2 of the event happens on March 3, Sunday at 2:00pm. During the same day, Day 1 of Event #2: Short-Deck Bounty will take place, carrying a buy-in of HKD 250k + 250K. Survivors come back on Day 2, March 4 at 2:00pm.
