Nick Petrangelo Wins Triton $50,000 NLH Turbo, Final Table of $125K NLH Main Event Today

Nick Petrangelo has long been a prominent figure on the Triton Series circuit, often making deep runs but narrowly missing out on titles. With 14 cashes and five final table appearances, the American poker pro finally claimed his first Triton Super High Roller Series title in the $50K NLH Turbo event at Triton Montenegro.

In typical Petrangelo fashion, he humorously downplayed his victory: “This one doesn’t count,” he joked as he was presented with the winner’s cheque and trophy. He quickly clarified, “Obviously I want to win one of the Mains or the Invitational or the $200Ks,” adding, “Obviously this is great and I’m happy. I’d like to win one of the big ones before I’m done.

The fast-paced nature of the turbo tournament saw players frequently going all-in pre-flop, with Petrangelo skillfully navigating the swings of the game to emerge victorious. His final opponent, the UK’s Lewis Spencer, put up a strong fight, but Petrangelo’s timing and decision-making were impeccable.

Tournament Action

While the Main Event continued next door, the turbo event attracted 53 entries, including 15 re-entries, creating a prize pool of over $2.6 million. The top prize was $775,000, emphasizing that even side events at Triton can offer significant rewards.

During hand-for-hand play across two tables, a notable pot developed between Petrangelo and Spencer. Spencer opened under the gun, Petrangelo called on the button, and the action continued with a check-bet-call sequence on the A25 flop and J turn. The river 8 saw both players check, with Spencer’s AK beating Petrangelo’s AQ.

Following this, Petrangelo raised from the cutoff, and Artur Martirosian went all-in with 16 big blinds. Petrangelo called with pocket eights against Martirosian’s K10. The board ran dry for Martirosian, sending him to the rail.

Final Table

Leon Sturm found aces at the final table and doubled through Isaac Haxton’s kings, only to see his newfound chips knock out Dan Dvoress shortly after. Dvoress’ AK couldn’t overcome Sturm’s pocket tens, ending his run in ninth place for $77,000.

Dylan Linde and David Yan managed to double through short stacks, while Steve O’Dwyer‘s queens fell to Spencer’s A10 after an ace appeared on the river. O’Dwyer exited in eighth place with $101,000.

Sturm’s exit followed when his pocket jacks lost to Maher Nouira’s pocket sixes, with a six on the river sealing his fate. Sturm collected $130,000 for seventh place.

As blinds increased, chips moved quickly. Isaac Haxton’s A6 was dominated by Petrangelo’s A10, ending Haxton’s tournament run in sixth place for $164,000.

David Yan kept the action lively by frequently shoving, but Lewis Spencer’s pocket kings bested Yan’s A5, leaving the final five players closely bunched in chips.

Maher Nouira’s exit in fifth place ($212,000) came after Spencer’s KJ defeated his AJ, followed by Spencer’s aces holding against Nouira’s A7.

With the average stack dwindling, Petrangelo took the lead by doubling through Spencer, and Yan’s K3 couldn’t best Petrangelo’s 75, resulting in Yan’s fourth-place finish ($273,000).

Dylan Linde’s pocket deuces fell to Petrangelo’s J9, with a jack and nine on the flop sealing Linde’s third-place finish ($362,000).

In heads-up play, Spencer’s 85 couldn’t overcome Petrangelo’s Q3 on a J57 flop and K turn, securing Petrangelo’s first Triton title and the $775,000 top prize. Spencer earned $556,000 for his runner-up finish.
