If you host it, they will come. The Triton Super High Roller Series is hosting an event in London. Event #2 is a special invite-only charity event featuring several of the biggest names in poker along with several wealthy poker savvy rec players.

All the action went down at the Grand Ballroom at London Hilton on Park Lane. This special event attracted 54 players in this million dollar buy-in event. There will be £2.7 million collected and set aside for charity. Only the top 11 places pay out with most of the moolah set aside to the top 3 players. First place pays out £19 million or approximately $23 million USD.

The players in this Triton London charity event included Rob Yong, Nick Petrangelo, Igor Kurganov, Vivek Rajkumar, Andrew Pantling, Sisia Jiang, Tim Adams, Al DeCarolis, Aaron Zang, Martin Kabrhel, Tan Xuan, Rui Cao, Matthias Eibinger, Cary Katz, Richard Yong, Ferdinand Putra, Stephen Chidwick, Jungleman, Rick Salomon, Tom Dwan, Sam Greenwood, Paul Phua, Leon Tsoukernik, Zee Justin, Hing Yang Chow, Ben Wu, Elton Tsang, Ivan Leow, Wai Kin Yong, Dan Smith, Talal Shakerchi, Wai Leong Chan, Brynn Kenney, Hralabob, Bobby Baldwin, Christoph Vogelsang, Sam Trickett, David Peters, Stanley Choi, Yu Liang, Andre Robl, Bill Perkins, Winfred Yu, Michael Soyza, Fedor Holz, Pat Madden, Mikita Badziakouski, Orpen Kisacikoglu, Chin Wei Lim, Qiang Wang, Jason Koon, Danny Tang, Tony G, and Timofey Kuznetsov.

In early action, Hollywood's Rick Solomon busted. And everyone's favorite online wunderkind in Asia, Durrrr, also hit the bricks much sooner than anyone expected and anticipated.

Solomon got it all-in with Carte As de pique:KS with a Broadway gutter draw and a nut-flush draw on a flop with two spades. Andrew Pantling flopped a set of Queens with Carte Dame de carreauCarte Dame de cœur. The Queens held up, Solomon whiffed, and Pantling even rivered a boat to win the flop.

Durrr is always a big draw. Sad we didn't get to see more of him before he vanished. Durrr took a couple of early hits to his stack. He had to get it all-in with Ace-Jack suited and a nut flush draw against Timofey Kuznetsov's Ace-Queen. TK flopped top pair and it actually held up. Durrr whiffed his spades draw and he hit the rail in 53rd place. Durrr was the second player knocked out in early action.
