3: Barrels with a hint of partypoker including Triton branded high rollers at MILLIONS Europe, a celebration party for Hossein Ensan, and POWERFEST begins.
Building a brand is as arduous as a lumberjack chopping through a sequoia. You can diminish the effort through collaboration, an understanding that sticks to partypoker and Triton Poker like the sticky toffee covering your fairground apple.
The last time one of these arrows whistled past it contained news that partypoker LIVE would be the primary sponsor of the Triton Million: A Helping Hand for Charity. It’s time for another. The shooting position is assumed, we’ve nocked the arrow, the bow is drawn and anchored, the aim secured, release, follow-through.
partypoker LIVE is repaying the favour by exposing the Triton Poker brand to its MILLIONS Europe audience. The King’s Resort and Casino in Rozvadov acts as host as partypoker put on another showstopper 4th – 18th August and Triton are on the IMDB.
The two-day €100,000 No-Limit Hold’em Super High Roller that runs Aug 12-13, and the €25,500 No-Limit Hold’em Short-Deck that runs Aug 13-14 are now Triton branded events.
It’s not an unfamiliar arrangement. A year ago, partypoker handed the reins to the RUB3,000,000 (US$47,400) High Roller, and the RUB6,000,000 Super High Roller to Triton during MILLIONS Sochi. Aymon Hata won the 47-entrant RUB 3,000,000 event for $755,384, and Ivan Leow conquered the 29-entrant RUB6,000,000 game earning $1,133,555.
The Triton branded events sit alongside the €1,100, €1m GTD MILLIONS Open, the €10,300, €5m GTD MILLIONS Europe, €25,500, €1m GTD MILLIONS Super High Roller, €10,300, €1m GTD MILLIONS High Roller, and the €230, €1.1m GTD German Poker Masters.
Here is the full tournament schedule.
The world champion to grace MILLIONS Europe
Hossein Ensan will compete in the 10,300, €5m GTD MILLIONS Europe. It’s his first appearance on European soil since his majestic victory at the $10,000 World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event.
The Iranian born German native defeated 8,569 entrants, including Dario Sammartino, heads-up, to claim the $10m first prize. To celebrate, the King’s Resort is laying out the red carpet and sticking silverskin onions on toothpicks during a special celebration on August 17 at 11:30 p.m.
Ensan has never cashed in a MILLIONS event.
