The fan favorite Phil Ivey has once again showcased his poker mastery, bagging his fifth Triton title at the $25,000 Short Deck Turbo event, his second at the 2023 Triton London series.
This win propels Ivey to second place on the all-time champions list, with only Jason Koon now ahead of him, who recently won his ninth title. Expressing his enduring love for the game, Ivey shared in the winner’s interview: “I love the game of poker, I always have. Hopefully, I’ll get a few more.”
It might have been a smaller event for Triton’s standard, with 33 entries and the entire event played in one day, but no one is going to turn down the $280,500 first-place prize.
Notable moments included Anson Ewe squeezing into the money with 9 antes left, only to be outdone by Ivey's pocket kings in a three-way all-in, and Ivey continuing his streak to ultimately outplay Stephen Chidwick. The duel with Danny Tang was swift, given Ivey's 144 antes to Tang’s 21, wrapping up the tournament in style

Full of high-stakes action, Triton was graced by poker superstars, thrilling moments, and monumental victories.
