First ever Triton Super High Roller Series concludes

From October 15th to the 17th, the Galaxy Macau Casino played host to the first edition of the Triton Super High Roller Series. The event had a buy-in of HK $250,000 with a 6-max format event, with 87 players competing. In the end, it was Stefan Schillhabel of Germany who earned the title win, after defeating Mike Watson of Canada in heads-up play.

When Day 2 began, Schillhabel would be in the middle of the 50 players when it came to chip stacks, once players came back to the felt. The poker player would maintain this midway stride until the final two tables were created. Once the final table was set with seven players remaining, Schillhabel was 5th in chips, according to PokerNews. It would not be long before the pro would double up and then set course for the first-place finish.

Once only two players remained, Watson and Schillhabel would begin heads-up play with Schillhabel holding a 5 to 1 chip lead. On the first hand, Watson would move all-in from the button with pocket sixes and Schillhabel would not hesitate to call with J-10 of clubs. With the dealer turning over an 7-A-J-3-8 on the board, the Jacks would prevail and Watson would be eliminated in second place.

For his efforts, Schillhabel would earn the top prize, along with a new Hublot watch, a trophy and a custom bottle of champagne.

Final Table Results:

Place Player Prize
First Stefan Schillhabel HK $5,874,400
Second Mike Watson HK $4,297,000
Third Manig Loeser HK $2,660,000
Fourth Dan Smith HK $1,821,000
Fifth Steve O’Dwyer HK $1,207,000
Sixth Isaac Haxton HK $900,000
Seventh Yat Wai Cheng HK $737,000
