After two long days of action, the £1,050,000 buy-in Triton Million is down to its final table. Vivek Rajkumar leads the final eight that also includes Stephen Chidwick, Tim Adams, Bryn Kenney, Alfred DeCarolis, Aaron Zang, Dan Smith, and Bill Perkins. First place pays out £19 million in this charity event that raised £2.7 million for a Helping Hand Charity.

And then there were eight in London. The Triton Million attracted 54 high stakes recreational players and pros that were slugging it out in a £54 million prize pool. Only 36 players survived the cut on Day 1. By the end of Day 2, only eight remained.

On the surface these deep pocketed and well-connected players were there to donate £50K each to charity. They tallied £2.7 million for a worthy cause with Helping Hand Charity. But below the surface they were also there for a shot at over $23 million USD. The champ would bank £19 million.

Only the top 11 places paid out in the Triton Million London. With 54 million on the line that's one crappy bubble to burst. Alas, Igor Kurganov took the dubious honor and doodie prize when he bubbled the final table. After two long days of highstakes mayhem, Kurganov busted in ninth place and went home with zilch.

The top 11 places got a cut of the prize pool but this one was super top heavy. The bottom places barely won their buy-in back. Winfred Yu got picked off in 11th place, but min-cashed for £1,100,000. Chin Wei Lim hit the bricks in 10th place, which paid out £1,100,000. Wai Leong Chan earned £1,200,000 for a ninth place finish. Not much profit there, but then again, at least they went home with something.

With eight remaining in the Triton Million, Vivek Rajkumar sat behind a mountain of chips. He had almost twice as much as Stephen Chidwick in second overall. Vivek bagged up 18 million, while Chidwick was second with a little under 10M.

Bryn Kenney kicked off the year with a bang down under and a win at the Aussie Millions. Now he has a shot to win a cool £19 million if he can outlast seven other players.

Kenney (5.5M) is one of the mid-stacks with Tim Adams (5.7M), Alfred DeCarolis (5.4M), and Aaron Zang (5M.

Dan Smith (2.35M) and Bill Perkins (2M) are the two shorties coming into the final table. Perkins bagged the Day 1 lead and after and up and down day, he managed to stay alive to advance to the final table.

Day 2 causalities in London included Kurganov, Christoph Vogelsang, Ferdinand Putra, Nick Petrangelo, Hing Yang Chow, Justin Bonomo, Mikita Badziakoiski, Cary Katz, Tony G, Yu Liang, Qiang Wang, Sam Greenwood, Danny Tang, Timofey Kuznetsov, Andre Robl, Stanley Choi, Marty Kabrhel, Ivan Leow, Jason Koon, Rob Yong, Tan Xuan, and Rui Cao.
