Kahle Burns Returns to Triton With $1,730,000 Win 10 Sep

Australian poker pro Kahle Burns played mainly online in the past few years, but Triton Super High Roller Series in Cyprus was just something he couldn’t miss. And what a return this was!

So far, his biggest tournament score was in one of the Triton events, when he finished 3rd in Macau for $1,300,035 in October 2017. Now, 5 years later Burns one-upped his best career result with a win in $75,000 Event #5 for $1,730,000 as he defeated Sam Greenwood heads-up.

"I guess I’m just lucky," Burns said, when asked how it felt to have come back to the Triton series and immediately secured a win. "I took some time off, spent some time with my girlfriend, my family. When you travel a lot, you start to miss some things. I was missing my friends, missing my family. But then I started to miss the poker, so I came back."

Pieter Aerts adds Triton title to his collection

Only two weeks after his first WSOP bracelet win in 6-max online championship on GGPoker for $400,213, Belgian Pieter Aerts adds another prestigious win to his poker CV.

If Event #2 ended in a heartbreak as Aerts was knocked out on the stone-hard bubble, he got his revenge in Event #3 $50,000 NLH – 6-max, pocketing $1,472,000 for his first Triton title.

"Obviously, I feel very, very good," Aerts said, clutching that trophy alongside his exclusive Shamballa Jewels bracelet, handed to winners at Triton Cyprus. "I got lucky to be in this position, but I guess that’s always the case."

The luck part is referencing the heads-up battle against Sam Grafton, when Pieters beat him with A2 against Brit’s AQ, spiking a 2 on the turn.

"These events are top notch," he said. "It’s been such a good experience…It’s something I hope all poker players can have. I want to thank everyone who was railing me at home."
