The Triton Poker series ended with the most expensive tournament in poker history, a £1,050,000 buy-in tournament. This tournament prize fund was £54 million, of which £2.7 million was donated for charity purposes. Aaron Zang was the winner of the tournament.
At the beginning of the heads-up, Bryn Kenney and Aaron Zang decided to make a deal that resulted in Bryn Kenny receiving $20,537,187 and Aaron Zang receiving $16,754,497. Thus, not only did Bryn Kenny win the biggest prize in the history of poker, but also took first place in the list of the most successful tournament players. Now his prize money is $55.5 million, which is 10 million more than Justin Bonomo, who is in second place.
“Bryn Kenny played better than me, but I always thought my dream could come true. I am very happy and it is a great honor for me to play against such professionals.
