The Triton Super High Roller Series pulled off the big one at the Grand Ballroom at London Hilton on Park Lane in swanky London, which has become a hotspot for extreme wealth and ballers in the poker world. The Triton folks figured out a way to induce more recreational players to play in a big-buy-in event and go swimming with sharks. This particular high roller tournament is truly a supreme super high roller with a million dollar buy-in. In order to get more wealthy business types, pros had to be invited personally by a rec player in this semi-private invitation only affair.

The London Million had a buy-in worth £1,050,000 and 50K went to charity while the cool million went to the prize pool. When the beancounters divided the cashola from the Triton Million, they raised over £2.7 million for A Helping Hand for Charity.

Only the top 11 places would get paid out of the bulky £54 million prize pool. First place is going to get approximately $23 million USD or roughly £19 million.

At the end of the first night of action in London, Bill Perkins lead the remaining 36 players out of the initial 54 runners who took a shot. Perkins, a gas trader who loves to make poker pros sweat hard in insane prop bets, bagged over 3.5 million.

Rounding out the top 5 in chips at the end of Day 1 included Tim Adams (3,095,000), Dan Smith (2,810,000), Rui Cao (2,710,00), and Nick Petrangelo (2,700,000).

Among the noteworthy names who survived at the end of the Day 1 included... Aaron Zang, Chin Lim, Igor Kurganov, Justin Bonomo, Hing Chow, Ferdinand Putra, Stevie Chidwick, Christoph Vogelsang, Vivek Rajkumar, Bryn Kenney, Rob Yong, Tony G, Sam Greenwood, Martin Kabrhel, Wai Chan, Danny Tang, Andrew Robl, Mikita Badziakouski, Tan Xuan, Yu Lianf, Winfred Yu, Jason Koon, Sosai Jiang, Cary Katz, Matthias Eibinger, Stanley Choi, and Timofey Kuznetsov.

Tom Dwan aka durrrr smack-talked Rick Salomon (yes, that guy from the Paris Hilton sex tape) when Rick became the first player to exit the million dollar buy-in event. Then durrrr quickly became the second casualty and the internets went ballistic with some needling. Hey, if it ain't memeworthy, you're not doing something right.

Other notable recs and pros who busted on Day 1 included... Jungleman, Haralabob, Leon Tsoukernik, Paul Phua, Sam Trickett, David Peters, Fedor Holz, Elton Tsang, Ben Wu, Richard Yong, Pat Madden, Wai Kin Yong, Bobby Baldwin, Mike Soyza, and Talal Shakrechi.
