New Zealand’s David Yan claimed victory at the 2023 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series London. After 14 hours of action on day 2, Yan seized his first Triton title, walking away with $3,052,002.
Yan’s win in London follows his remarkable performance earlier this year. He finished third in the $250,000 buy-in at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, raking in nearly $1.5 million. Moreover, he conquered a $50,000 buy-in event in the same series. Yan so far is good for over $5.7 million in earnings this year.
Held at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House in London, the event attracted 81 participants. The prize pool reached $16,200,000, split among the top 13. While many big names made money, a few missed the final table, including Christoph Vogelsang, Daniel Dvoress, Sam Grafton, and Seth Davies.
Spain’s Juan Pardo was the first to leave the eight-handed final table, followed by Chris Brewer. Brewer’s loss to Timothy Adams placed him seventh, with a year total of over $10.3 million in earnings.
Quick eliminations continued as Aleksejs Ponakovs and Danny Tang placed sixth and fifth, respectively. Negotiations to redistribute the prize money failed initially but the final three players agreed to the following payouts:
- Nacho Barbero: $3,445,807
- David Yan: $2,952,002
- Espen Jorstad: $2,766,191
Yan and Barbero faced off in heads-up play. Yan took the lead and ultimately won the event title holding Ad4c and thereby beating Barbero’s Kh6c.
