Triton Poker’s Super High Roller Series in Vietnam is breaking records with a mammoth number of entries to a Triton Day 1 event at the Hoiana Resort and Golf in Hoi An.

In the $25,000 buy-in GG Super Millions event, 166 entries in the first event at the Vietnam smashed the previous record of 132 entrants in the opening tournament in Triton’s Cyprus stop last year.

Smiljkovic saw his stack dwindle to 8,500 chips (around 5BB) early in the tournament after his QQ overpair was destroyed by Sam Greenwood’s set of threes, but the German doubled up via a three-outer on the river against Sorel Mizzi and slowly worked his way up the leaderboard.

Several stars have already busted before the money, including Greenwood, Jason Koon, Michael Addamo, Fedor Holz, Isaac Haxton and Justin Bonomo.
