The 2019 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro concluded with Jungleman taking down a title in mixed NL/Short Deck for a cool million. Also, Mikita Badziakouski added another Triton SHR title to his resume with a victory in Event #10 HKD $750,000 Short Deck. American pro Ben Lamb won almost $1 million during a marathon heads up battle against Romain Arnaud in Event #9 HKD $500,000 Short Deck Ante Only.

The Triton Super High Roller Series concluded with another successful string of high ball events. The Triton Series teamed up with partypoker LIVE this time around to produce another kick-ass high roller affair on the circuit. This is one of the last major series (especially with a slew of Short Deck events) before the World Series of Poker kicks off at the Rio Casino in Las Vegas at the end of May. The Triton SHRS went out with a bang in Montenegro. What could be a better way to end this run than a Jungleman victory?

The swanky and posh Maestral Resort and Casino, located off the coast of the Adriatic Sea, hosted high roller action once again as ballers from the Americas, Asia, and Europe flocked to Montenegro for the last two weeks.

Along the way at the 2019 Triton Montenegro, Steve O'Dwyer took down the first event. Bryn Kenney continued his hot streak and he won an event in the opening days as well. John Juanda added his name to the growing list of champs when he also binked a short deck title and moved up the all-time money list.

American pros Ben Lamb and Jungleman won Triton titles during the home stretch. In addition, Mikita Badziakouski padded his bankroll with another Triton trophy and a cool million in cash.

Ben Lamb found himself on the losing end of a heads-up bout with Hing Chow in Event #8 HKD $200,000 PLO. Chow went on to win and Lamb had to settle on a runner-up score of $HKD 1.7M or approximately $217K USD.

Lamb did not waste any time before getting back on the horse in Event #9. There's nothing better than following up a disappointing second place loss with a first place finish. The HKD $500,000 buy-in Short Deck Ante Only attracted 42 players. The final table money winners included Timofey Kuznetsov, Tan Xuan, Ivan Leow, Romain Arnaud, and Ben Lamb.

Timofey Kuznetsov hit the road in fifth place for a min-cash. Tan Xuan got picked off in fourth place. Ivan Leow cashed in another event, but he couldn't go the distance in this Short Deck event. Leow busted in third place. After a lengthy heads-up joust, Arnaud got picked off in second place.

For first place in Event #9, Lamb won HKD $7.65 million or roughly $975K USD. But for shits and giggles, we'll round it up to a cool million.

In Event #10 HKD $750,000 Short Deck, Mikita Badziakouski prevailed. Badzman faced a difficult final table that also included American Andrew Robl, Canadian shark Sam Greenwood, and high-stakes guru Paul Phua. China's Tuan Xuan and Qiang Wang also went deep and cashed. Xuan made back to back final tables but he hit the bricks in sixth place. Andrew Robl hit the deck in fifth place.

Paul Phua made yet another final table, but he had yet to break thru to the winner's circle in Montenegro. Phua took down fourth place.

Qiang Wang's run ended in third place, which set up a heads-up battle between Sam Greenwood and Badziakouski. The Canadian had to settle on second place in this one. Greenwood banked HKD $8.6 million, or approximately $1.1 million USD. That's not too shabby for a runner up share, eh?

Badziakouski took down a first place prize worth HKD $13.3 million or roughly $1.72 million USD. Badzman now has over $24.4 million in career winnings and moved into 15th all time. He's just shy of the exclusive $25M Club.

Jungleman won the final event on the docket. Saturday's final table included Event #13 HKD $300,000 NL/Short Deck Mixed. The field attracted 27 total entries including ten re-loads. Only the top three places paid out with most of the cheesecake set aside to the champion. Mike Watson bubbled the event and busted in fourth place. Rui Cao almost won another event, but he settled on third place.

Jason Koon and Jungleman tussled for the cash and the title. Koon hit the road in second place. His runner-up share was worth approximately $302K USD. Jungleman took down HKD $3,930,000 for first place or approximately $501K USD in Event #13.

By the way, take a peek at a week-to-week breakdown of the2019 WSOP schedule.
