The Germans Love Trickett!
Sam Trickett pulled off a sick bluff against both Bryn Kenney and Stephen Chidwick and the Germans were very impressed! Watch the full hand here.

Christoph Vogelsang is usually criticized for his turtleneck cover-up job but for the Triton Million he broke up the full suit look. Vogelsang sported some Nike sunglasses along with his look to create a unique combo that surely impressed Timex!

Decide for yourself, did Justin Bonomo make the right play here?
Discipline or Stupidity:
We're on dinner break in the million and I get invited to sit at a table full of playboy models. They're blown away by how big the buyin is. After 2 minutes of chatting, I leave to go study alone in my hotel room.
Relevant – I'm newly single

Yong’s Draw From Hell
To nobody’s surprise, some of the Triton Million table draws were absolutely stacked after the pros and recs were mixed together. Rob Yong definitely drew the short straw as you can see in this video. Yong ultimately survived the day with 1.6 million chips.

A Day in the Life of Boris Becker
Tennis legend Boris Becker is playing some of the Triton side events and along the way, he’s providing some mental game coaching for Tony G who bagged up 1.4 million chips after Day 1. Oh, and Becker photo bombed the Chinese language live stream break desk action as well as posing for a selfie with WSOP Main Event winner Hossein Ensan.

Negreanu Won’t Miss This One Again!
Daniel Negreanu took some time off from the game after an extremely hectic World Series of Poker but he’s already regretting that decision!
Biggest mistake of the year for me was not going to London to play @tritonpoker
It won’t happen again.
I didn’t think the FOMO would be this bad, but it’s bad.
