Back in May this year, Rui Cao triumphed in the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Montenegro, taking down the $1,000,000 HKD No Limit Hold’em Main Event for 1st $3,351,130. In the heads-up duel, French pro Cao got the better of Malaysian player Paul Phua, who won $2,178,871 for ending as runner-up. Could the two provide fireworks again?

Fedor Holz could go to the top of the all-time money list with a spectacular win


Justin Bonomo’s stellar 2018 saw him take over from Daniel Negreanu at the top of the all-time money list. But could anyone realistically overtake his during this Triton Series? The short answer is yes. Based of conservative estimates of a $20 million first prize, Fedor Holz, Bryn Kenney, Jason Koon, Dan Smith, and Stephen Chidwick could all take the top spot with a win and Bonomo not making the money.

Can any of the top names eclipse the $50 million earnings mark or could Justin Bonomo extend his big lead? Tune in to find out for free on PokerGO starting at 8:00 a.m. ET on Thursday.
