Matthias Eibinger has been crowned as the newest Triton Poker champion. The Austrian poker pro topped a field of 135 entries to take down the Triton Super High Roller Series Monte-Carlo Main Event for $3,461,261, the largest score of his career.

This major victory is a culmination of his success in the high-roller circuit, which has seen him amass over $17.8 million over the last seven years.

Eibinger Dominates Triton Monte-Carlo Main Event

The 135-entry field generated an astonishing $16.8 million prize pool which was ultimately shared by the top 23 finishers. Triton Poker-sponsored tournaments have established a reputation for attracting the biggest names in poker and the Monte-Carlo series was no exception. High-stakes superstars Isaac Haxton, Jans Arends, Daniel Dvoress and Jason Koon took a shot but failed to reach the money.


The final action proved to be a battle of the elites, with the remaining nine players all highly accomplished pros. Each finalist was guaranteed to take home at least $391,000, and that exact amount went to Nick Petrangelo who was the first to leave the table in 9th place.

Eliminated next was Justin Bonomo who claimed the 8th spot for $491,000. Aleksejs Ponakovs followed Bonomo to the rail, finishing in 7th place for $668,000. Ken Tong walked away with the last six-figure score of the final table worth $902,000 after finishing in 6th place.

The rest of the remaining players all enjoyed seven-figure payouts, starting with Quan Zho who earned $1,165,000 for his 5th-place finish, as well as Chris Brewer who also showed a strong outing, claiming 4th place for $1,450,000. Santhosh Suvarna helped himself to a 3rd-place finish, taking home $1,772,000.

Eibinger Outclasses Mateos in Thrilling Heads-Up Battle

A thrilling heads-up battle then ensued between Eibinger and fellow high-stakes superstar Adrian Mateos, both of whom are no strangers to each other as they had engaged in multiple one-on-one matches in the past. With the chip lead passed back and forth, the duo eventually went for a deal, leaving $100,000 to play for.

In the end, it was Matthias Eibinger who emerged victorious – holding ace-king, the Austrian flopped a king to crack Mateos’ pocket tens. The Spanish pro settled for 2nd place with $3,120,739 in winnings, while Eibinger captured the title and a career-best $3,461,261. He was also awarded a luxurious Jacob & Co timepiece, along with an exciting yacht experience for him and up to five friends, courtesy of the popular brand Bombay.
