For those interested in some high stakes hold ‘em, the Triton (same folks that did the Jeju and Montenegro events) are hosting an incredibly high stakes tournament for the rest of the week. Streams for free on their YouTube with great commentary and production. Playing in London

And they are all going to be in tuxes, it’s got a real James Bond feel.

I heard about this on DAT poker podcast. I thought it was clever to do invite only and let the rich guys invite one pro each. Nick and Ali are supposed to be doing commentary which is sweet. I will definitely check this out.

For day 1 they are split into “pros” and “business men”. The pro tables are the toughest lineups I’ve ever seen. Really good poker to be witnessed on those tables

The chips are shitty though. They’ve all got this weird smudge over the triton graphic. And the annoying chipco white ring

Final table time. Sensei Kenney’s interpretation of a suit is interesting.

I’m particularly excited to watch Chidwick and Kenney maneuver their middle stacks in the face of dominant Rajkumar chip lead.

You'll have to speak louder, I can't hear you over Bryn Kenney's jacket.

I’m like 2 hours behind live (keep getting annoying chores)...but first few levels I’ve been really impressed with Stevie. He’s putting on a masterclass of how to apply pressure when people are playing too big for their comfort level, as well as how to respond when people try to use pressure against him

Watching live, so no spoilers. Chips are hideous, tho. I would have hoped for some plaques at this point. That bumper video with the chips rolling on edges is pretty cool.

I guess one way around color blindness is to use white, grey, and cream for your chip bases?

I was happy to see a none-pro win. I knew that Kinney jinxed himself when he bought the 35,000 GBP bottle of whiskey. I hope shulman got a dram.

Zhang is apparently one of the top short-deck players in the world. Not sure how he was considered businessman and not pro

I remember they made some sort of reference to this, can't recall when. Something about being invited as a businessman, and he wanted to be labeled a pro. I've got to guess that the first six levels were more stable on the pro side of this game. Players tougher, obviously, but the pros would be more predictable, less crazy play.

Also Dwan was saying that this was probably not the biggest buy in that zhang has played.
