The 2017 Triton Series Super High Roller Series event featuring a HK$1,000,000 ($128,845) buy-in event drew 39 entries from 29 individual players to juice the prize pool to HK$37,073,400 ($4,776,730). The Solaire Resort & Casino hosts a final table of high roller stars with Spaniard Sergio Aido and German Koray Aldemir virtually tied for the chip lead.

Wai Kin Yong, Dan Cates, Devan Tang and Bryn Kenney round out the final table – the only players earning a cash in the event. Here’s a look at what they’ll be playing for:

 1st $13,717,400   $1,767,421
 2nd  $8,898,000  $1,146,464
 3rd  $5,561,000  $716,508
 4th  $3,893,000  $501,594
 5th  $2,780,000  $358,189
 6th  $2,224,000  $286551

Aido made his fourth Triton Series final table with back-to-back third place finishes in November and his fourth place finish in the HK$250,000 event Daniel Colman took down a few days ago. Aid has $1.1 million four months’ time.

Yong won the 2016 Triton Super Roller Main Event for $2 million for just his sixth tournament cast. Cates took down the Triton Suncity Cup at the same festival for almost $360,000.

Phil Ivey came close to the final with an eighth place finish after he staked his last ten big blinds on pocket eights. Yong called with a suited ace, paired on the turn and Ivey was eliminated. 

Ivey’s fired HK$2.5 million ($322,113) in his first tournament action of 2017 across the two events without collecting a cash. After skipping the PokerStars Championship Bahamas and the Aussie Millions, the next tournament appearance for Ivey is anyone’s guess.

Elton Tsang bubbled the event in seventh place holding pocket eight eights to Yong’s ace ten that paired a ten on the flop. Play ceased for the night, the stacks were bagged up and players return for a final table on Tuesday 1 pm local time (midnight ET).
