Due to health and safety concerns in the region, as well as increased difficulty surrounding international travel, organizers have decided to postpone the upcoming Super High Roller Series Russia, presented by Luxon Pay, and the Triton Poker Sochi – Special Edition.
The two series will shift focus to Merit Royal Hotel Casino & Spa in North Cyprus, where a joint festival will be held April 2-15, 2022. Featuring both the Super High Roller Series Europe, presented by Luxon Pay, and the Triton Poker Cyprus – Special Edition, the festival will include a variety of high-stakes tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $25,000 up to $250,000.
With the recent announcement that North Cyprus has scrapped its COVID traffic light system, there are no travel restrictions. Additionally, there are currently no quarantine obligations on entering the country. A traveling player may be required to show a negative PCR test to enter the country, subject to vaccine status.
If the success of last year’s Super High Roller Series Europe, presented by Luxon Pay, is any indication, the April series will be a headlining event. In 2021, Super High Roller Series Europe, presented by Luxon Pay, at Merit Royal Hotel Casino generated more than 400 entries across the 10-tournament festival, with more than $27,000,000 in prize money awarded. Big wins were had by Phil Ivey, Antanas “Tony G” Guoga, and Ali Imsirovic, among others. The biggest winner from the series was Wiktor Malinowski, who topped the superstar field in the $250,000 Super High Roller Bowl Europe for a first-place prize of $3,690,000. With the addition of four Triton Poker Series events, the joint 2022 festival anticipates an even larger turnout.
All Super High Roller Series and the Triton Poker Cyprus – Special Edition tournaments as part of the festival in North Cyprus qualify for the PokerGO Tour. For complete schedule details, please visit www.pgt.com/schedule.
