Champion Mikita Badziakouski
Mikita Badziakouski has been one of the top-performing live tournament players in recent years, with millions upon millions in cashes in high-stakes events around the globe. The Belarusian has had particular success in Triton Series events, with three of his top five scores coming on the tour. The 30-year-old poker pro continued his strong form in Triton events by taking down the 2022 Triton Series Madrid €50,000 buy-in no-limit hold’em seven-max event on Wednesday, May 18. He defeated a field of 101 entries to secure his record-setting fourth Triton trophy, along with the top prize of €1,340,000.

This was Badziakouski’s eighth-largest career score. It marked the tenth time that he has cashed for seven figures in a tournament. He now has more than $36.6 million in lifetime earnings, enough to put him in ninth place on poker’s all-time money list. His three previous Triton wins were all for a million or more. His first victory saw him take home $2.5 million as the champion of the 2018 Triton Montenegro $1 million HKD ($127,396 USD) buy-in NLH event. Later that year he emerged victorious in the Triton Jeju $2 million HKD ($254,839 USD) buy-in NLH event for a career-best score of $5.2 million. His most recent victory on the tour came in 2019, when he took down a $750,000 HKD ($95,599 USD) short deck event for more than $1.7 million in Montenegro.

Heads-up was set when Tang eliminated Fedor Holz from the tournament in a cooler of a hand. Tang opened with a raise to 300,000, Holz responded with a three-bet to 1,100,000 before calling off the 3,700,000 he had behind when Tang four-bet shoved. It was ace-queen for Holz but the dominating ace-king for Tang. Tang caught a king on the flop and Holz never managed to catch up.

That hand gave Tang the chip lead but a player of Badziakouski’s calibre is never out of the running so long as he has a single chip available. Tang had his opponent on the ropes and lead by 10-to-1 at one stage. However, the Belarusian fought back, prompting the pair to discuss the possibility of a deal for the remaining prizes. Those brief discussions failed to come to fruition, and the high-stakes duo kept battling.

Something had to give eventually and it did when both players held a mere 25 big blinds between them. Tang pushed all-in with king-deuce and Badziakouski called with pocket nines. The pair held, Tang busted, and Badziakouski claimed his fourth Triton title.
