Triton Poker at Jeju Island, Korea.Tom "durrrr" Dwan, who has been largely absent from the poker spotlight since "Black Friday", took down a nice sized cash in a preliminary event at the 2018 Triton Super High Roller Series Jeju.

The Short Deck events have been growing in popularity and are now a regular part of the Triton Poker series. High stakes players are always action junkies, and removing the low cards from the deck significantly increases the potential for big hands.

The HK$500k Triton Hold'em event attracted a number of big names, including Tom Dwan, Jason Koon and more.

In the end, the tournament was won by Ivan Leow, who ended up taking home over $1 million for his first place finish.


Here is how the tournament ended up finishing out, along with the payouts for each player in USD:

1st, Ivan Leow, $1,079,586
2nd, Rui Cao, $672,989
3rd, Jason Koon, $462,680
4th, Devan Tang, $336,494
5th, Tom Dwan, $252,371


With his 5th place cash in this event, Tom Dwan now has over $3 million in total lifetime tournament cashes.

This is just Dwan's third cash in the last five years, as he is notorious for avoiding live tournaments, as he instead prefers the high stakes cash games in locales such as Macau.
