Teun Meulder wins Triton $100k for Monster $1,940,000 Payday

Teun Meulder of the Netherlands scooped the monster $1,940,000 first prize in the Triton Poker Cyprus $100k tournament, fending off fellow countryman Tom Vogelsang heads-up to lift the trophy...

With 69 entries, the prizepool was a monster $6.9million, with 9 players paid and two $million+ prizes up top and a double-your-money min cash of $192,000.

Day one saw Australia’s Michael Addamo top of the chip counts, helped by KOing Johan Guilbert twice, pocket kings and pocket tens making it an expensive day for the Frenchman.

Legends hit the Rail

Jungleman Daniel Cates was another casualty, as was Phil Ivey, and they were joined on the rail by the likes of Timothy Adams and Mikita Badziakouski.

When the bubble burst, it was event 1 winner Andras Nemeth who missed out, his short stack falling to Tom Vogelsang (not to be confused with his German highstakes namesake, Christoph)...

Nemeth: A♣ 5♣
Vogelsang: J♥ 6♥

Flop: 9♥ 9♠ 7♠
Turn: 10♠
River: 8♥

Quads and a Royal Flush

The Dutch pro didn’t have things all his own way, however, as the following incredible run out shows...

...although he soon bounced back with a monster hand of his own...

Meanwhile, Elton Tsang, Ali Imsirovic and Triton co-founder Paul Phua had been eliminated, as was Daniel Dvoress in 5th and then Mike Watson in 4th, with Jake Schindler falling in 3rd to leave us heads-up.

As with event 1, where two Hungarians battled for top honours, so too in event 2 of the 4-tournament series, where two Dutchmen had sewn up $million paydays and were looking to add the trophy.

It only took two hands to separate them, with Meulder check-calling the flop and turn and then showing the nuts when Vogelsang shoved the river with the lower straight...

Meulder: K♦ 10♠
Vogelsang: 10♦ 6♠

Flop: 2♠ 8♥ J♥
Turn: Q♠
River: 9♦
