Wai Kin Yong

The 2019 Triton London £100,000 Main Event came with a bang and this year’s edition was filled with lots of actions. Wai Kin Yong won this year’s edition (2019 Triton Super High Roller Series London £100,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event) after winning over a field of 130 players to go home with £2,591,695 as prize money.

According to reports, the 130 field of entrants is the largest in Triton history. One of the memorable highlights of the Main Event was the fact that Triton co-founder Paul Phua competed against Wia Kin Yong Yong, the son of his business associate, Richard Yong.

Yong had all the confidence that he would win this event; on the other hand, Phua was looking forward to being lucky this time around after finishing second place twice in two previous Triton finishes.

During the event, Phua played well after winning different pots to increase his chip advantage, but even with his king-ten-five-seven-seven and moving all in, Yong triumphed with two pair.

Yong said this after the game: “It feels great to play against Paul; it’s not happened before. I’m just going to play my best and go for the win.” He added: “The brand is growing stop after stop, and we are very lucky to have many friends and professional players who support us. We try to make the event as fun and comfortable as it can be. Players want to come back because of that, and I’ve seen a lot of new faces, maybe 30 percent are new players in London. I’m very, very happy.”

The Final Table Highlight

The third hand of the final table saw Yong defeating Wai Leong Chan (9th – £305,000); later again, Daniel Cates (8th – £410,000) and Stephen Chidwick (7th – £544,000) were eliminated by Michael Soyza in a few minutes. It’s also essential to note that Cates’ hand and Chidwick’s ace-seven couldn’t contend with Soyza’s ace-queen and so they saw the exit door.

Furthermore, Michael Chi Zhang (6th – £711,000) played pocket nines against Phua’s pocket queens; the run was great, but he was removed by Sam Greenwood (5th – £902,000), who was also dismissed by Yong.

The whole poker scene predicted an all Malaysian finale, but this possibility was no more as Soyza (4th – £1,120,000) got eliminated after Yong flopped the flush with queen-deuce.

The famous player, Ben Heath (3rd – £1,350,000) looked forward to winning the Main Event and follow the triumphant streak of his close pal Charlie Carrel, who won a Triton title a few days ago. But it didn’t go as planned as Yong eliminated him.  Yong faced Phua to seal his victory at the final table.
