Since late July, the Park Lane Hilton has played host to the Triton SHR Series. Several events have finished up during the London series, including the most recent Super High Roller tournament. With a buy-in of €100,000, a total prize pool of €3,040,000 was generated from the 32 players competing. In the end, it was Orpen Kisacikoglu who earned the first-place finish after defeating Vladimir Troyanovksiy in heads-up play.
When the final table began, eight players would return to the felt. However, only six would earn a cash prize, so unfortunately for Michael Addamo, his 8th place finish would send him home empty handed. Igor Kurganov would also leave without any prize money, exiting the tournament in 7th place.
At this point, a few players would double up and it would soon be time for Kristen Bicknell to exit as well. Bicknell would be eliminated by Orpen Kisacikoglu, taking home the 6th place finish. She would be followed by Cary Katz and Wai Kin Yong. Yong has already seen great success in the Triton series, having earned the first place finish during the Main Event. He would have to settle for 4th in this tournament.
After Ben Heath was eliminated in 3rd, it would leave Vladimir Troyanovksiy and Orpen Kisacikoglu to duke it out in heads up play.
According to PokerNews…
The heads-up round would only last around 45 minutes before the winner was named. Both players had earned a top pair on the flop but Kisacikoglu had the better kicker and it would save him, giving the player the win and the €1,040,000 first-place prize!
