Last week, Triton Poker released Episode 1 of their popular SHR Short Deck Cash Game in Jeju, South Korea, where Tom Dwan walked out after losing a huge pot worth $2.3 million to Paul Phua.
This week, fans can finally get to watch the continuation as Triton Poker released Episode 2. The cash game event is still held at the same venue (Landing Casino in Jeju, South Korea), and still playing with the 36-card Short Deck Poker.
Triton Poker Super High Roller Series 2018 Event info:
Short Deck Cash Game 36 cards (2's thru 5's removed).
Flush beats a full house.
Ace acts as high (TJQKA) and low (A6789) for making straight (so acts as A and as 5).
BUY-IN: ₩ 300,000,000 (≈$300,000) for 300,000,000 chips - unlimited re-entry
Unfortunately for the reclusive poker pro, Dwan was again on a losing streak in this 2nd episode, but unlike in episode 1 where he lost a shocking $2.3 million, this time he lost a mere $537,300 which caused him to bust and forced him to re-buy.
Aside from Tom Dwan and Malaysian high roller Paul Phua, the high-stakes table also featured elite high rollers including partypoker ambassador Jason Koon, Elton Tsang, Tan Xuan, Qiang Wang and Andrew Robl.
In this second episode, watch the part where Dwan gets dealt pocket kings while Tsang held A-Q. An Ace on the flop enabled Tsang to take the pot worth more than half a million.

Perhaps you are right to fold two kings very hard ... about as hard as to fold two aces .... or 2 queens .... or 2 jacks .... but Two kings is a pretty good hand .... especially if on There is no ace at the table .... then you can raise the stakes .... And here's another ace on the table and the opponent raises the stakes ..... then you need to overcome ambitions and lose 2 kings
This game can be watched by those who are interested to play it. If they have no plans to play this game in the future, then they will lose time without winning anything. Holdem poker players will be confused with Triton Poker. I do not think this game will be successful.
Yes very interesting game and i always like to see many famous player play poker because you can see some interesting play and maybe learn something you can try to do in your game. Tom dwan not have good luck in this series in two forst episodes
I have been watching these guys playing poker and it is truly frightening the amounts of money they are playing for. You could swear that they are using play money and not real cash and it is mind blowing
Remember the ultra high stakes cash games on the old Full Tilt, roughly ten years ago? Those pots were even higher. Adrenaline junkies just need ever higher doses, and in poker this means ever higher stakes. And if they can suck in money from outside the poker world, it is even better.
Another episode of this version of poker. Now i took the time to read the rules for this one. Besides the twist with the full house, there is another one with the ace and the straight. Still a game that i wouldnt like to watch, even with these players in.

Yeah but at least those weren't like this gimped shortdecked version of the game. I get it if somebody wants to stir up the pot by taking out low numbers but it just doesn't create much excitement for me. Getting broadway cards on almost every turn and making hands left and right is just ruining the suprise factor of the overall gameflow 4me.
