The 63-entry strong HKD1,000,000 Main Event of the 2018 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro at the Maestral Resort & Casino in Budva, Montenegro, will determine a champion today as just nine players remain. They are all guaranteed to take home a portion of the HKD59,270,400 (~$7,550,129) prize pool and some $2.5 million are up top for the champion.
In prime position to become the latest winner of the elusive high stakes festival that regularly features some of the biggest names in poker is High Roller regular Steffen Sontheimer with 3,980,000, who will return with as many chips as his nearest followers Peter Jetten (1,960,000) and Mikita Badziakouski (1,945,000) have combined.
It won't be an easy ride for the German, though, as the unofficial final table line-up is filled with further big names such as Ivan Leow (1,655,000), Rui Cao (1,610,000), Manig Loeser (1,590,000), Day 1 chip leader Wai Leong Chan (1,305,000), Steve O'Dwyer (1,155,000) and Dietrich Fast (350,000) round up the other hopefuls. Loeser may even make it back-to-back victories here in Montenegro after defeating Triton founder Richard Yong in heads-up in 2017 to claim his biggest payday on the live circuit thus far.
