When it comes to online poker, most people only think about online slots. But did you know that there is a charity event that kicking off very soon and is even free for players on PokerGo? This event is called a Helping Hand and normally has a $1,050,000 entry, Triton Million. In this event 50 poker players will be firing out the biggest entry fee in history and that gives it the potential of being the biggest single prize ever in poker history. You may ask if someone is able to grab that eight-figure prize then who will they be looking at overtaking on the leaderboards? Here is a look at just that.
In the most recent World Champion, Hossein Ensan is tied with 2 other players for the sixth place spot. He triumphed over the Italian Dario Sammartino after a very dominant heads- up along with a final table performance, this German is still floating on cloud nine after reaching this amazing achievement. There is a chance that he could pop up as a late entry into the Triton Million. That is why you do not rule anything out in poker.
He is on the very tip-top of the money list, he completely dominated the books in 2018 and thus they ended up calling 2018 The Year of Bonomo. He defeated Fedor Holz, the German phenom, in a heads- up round to take the title. He was able to do this with players like Dan Smith and Bryon Kaverman still sitting at the final table.
This Swedish superstar won the 2014 WSOP Main Event, which is one of the biggest events recorded. It had a whopping 6,683 players taking part along with a November Nine that was played out several times by Martin. Not only was he in this event, but he was also taking part in a 12 week intense study period. The $10 million prize was awarded on the 45th edition of the WSOP Main Event. It saw an all European final trio battle to victory when Martin defeated the Norwegian player Felix Stephensen and the Dutchman Jorryt van Hoof, who was the former winner.
Even though it was not the biggest prize of 2012, it remains the 4th biggest of all- time in poker. Sam Trickett is an English high stakes player who unfortunately missed out on the top prize when he decided to take part in the first-ever edition of the Big One for One Drop in the 2012 London Olympics. He has famously won a huge hand when he revered quad threes in order to bust the flush that Brian Rast had. He would then go on to finish as a runner- up on that final table.
When he took down the WSOP Main Event in 2006, not only did he make history but he bookended a three-year crazy poker development. Due to Chris Moneymaker’s win back in 2003, the field for the Main Event started to grow and grow for up to 4 years in the future. With Moneymaker’s unbelievable success becoming a very modest field according to today’s standards, Gold won with more than 10 times as many players as Moneymaker did.
In the 2016 Big One for One Drop in Monte Carlo, there was a surprisingly $1,000,000 on the line for the 26 total players. The lucky winner who walked away with that amazing prize was none other than Elton Tsang. Six of the players, including Tsang, cashed in a heads- up game against Anatoly Grutovy and was able to come out on top.
