The 2023 Triton Super High Roller Series North Cyprus made a major impact on the high-stakes tour’s all-time money list, with several of the top-ranked players adding to their totals in a big way during the 15-event festival.

The top-ranked player is Bryn Kenney with nearly $30.7 million, which accounts for more than half of his $58 million in total earnings. Kenney has made nine in-the-money finishes on the tour, including securing two titles along the way. Surprisingly, the New Yorker’s largest cash (and the single largest tournament payday ever in poker history) actually came in a runner-up showing at the £1,050,00 buy-in 2019 Triton Million charity invitational event. He struck a heads-up deal with eventual champion Aaron Zang, and with the chip lead at the time, he locked up over $20.6 million before going on to finish second. But even without that record-breaking score, Kenney would still have more than $10 million in Triton cashes.

Seven-time Triton event winner Jason Koon is the tour’s all-time title leader, with three more trophies won than any other player. He is also the second highest-earning player with more than $22.1 million on tour. Koon has 33 cashes, with his five biggest career paydays all coming in Triton events, including four multi-million-dollar wins. The West Virginia native’s largest victory ever was when he topped a field of 103 entries in a $1 million HKD (approximately $127,000 USD) buy-in event. That win alone earned him more than $3.6 million.

Zang is the third-ranked player with just shy of $21.1 million. While nearly $16.8 million of that came from his win in the aforementioned Triton Million, the Macau-based high roller nabbed another win in the 2023 Triton Vietnam $100,000 short deck main event for $1.5 million and has a third-place showing in a 2019 Triton London £250,000 short deck event for over $2.7 million.

Four-time Triton champion Mikita Badziakouski ($17,406,217), Stephen Chidwick ($16,222,752), and Paul Phua ($15,829,982) round out the top six. ♠
