The Tritron Super High Roller Series continued at the Maestral Resort in Montenegro. They have a couple of more winners in the books after nonstop high balla action. Earlier in the series, American pros Steve O'Dwyer and Bryn Kenney binked Triton events.
John Juanada faded a field of 64 runners to win Event #6 HKD $250,000 buy-in Short Deck. The final table included Paul Phua, John Juanda, Jungleman, Mike Zoyza, Petter Jetten, Sergey Lededez, Wai Yong, and Daniel Dvoress.
Phua got picked off in eighth place. Jungleman's epic run ended in sixth place. Canadian Peter Jetten made another final table, but he had to settle on fourth place.
Wai Kin Yong busted in third place, which paid out nearly $280K USD. With Yong's elimination, the heads-up battle was set between Juanda and Dan Dvoress. It was Juanda's day and he went the distance against the Canadian pro.
John Juanda earned a payout worth $613K USD. Daniel Dvoress banked almost $420K for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?
Only 14 players have won $25 million or more playing tournaments. John Juanda is one of them. He passed the 25M mark with some slick finishing skills in Montenegro and now has $25.2 million. He's come a long way from being a door-to-door bible salesman to become of the top tournament players in the world.
Peter Jetten was the bridesmaid in Event #7 when he took second place in the HKD $200K Short Deck Ante-Only Turbo. Quek Sechariah Sheng took him out. Sheng banked HKD $2.7 million for first place. That final table included Paul Phua, Kenneth Kee, Wai Leong Chan, Gabe Patgorski, Daniel Dvoress, and Rui Cao.
Rui Cao won Event #11 HKD $1 million Short Deck Main Event for HKD $26,300,000 or $3.3 million USD. He defeated Paul Phua heads up for the title and mountain of cash. Phua banked over $2.2 million USD for second place. Not too shabby, eh? The final table also included Arnaud Romain, Dan Dvoresss, Ken Kee, Ming Liu, Tong Choon, and Ike Haxton.
