€1.8 Million Pot During Triton Poker Series Cash Game
A pot that was possibly the largest in televised poker history occurred last night during a cash game at the Triton Poker High Roller Series in Montenegro. The cash game featured a €1 million buy-in with €2000/€4000 stakes and attracted some huge names including Patrick Antonius, Tom Dwan and Phil Ivey. But it wasn’t who played that attracted the attention of the poker world; Instead, it was one of the largest, if not the largest, pot ever from a televised game.
