Andras Nemeth defeated Laszlo Bujtas in heads up in Event #1: $50,000 6-Handed No-Limit Hold’em at the Triton Poker Special Edition Series. Nemeth outlasted 82 runners and walked away with $1,082,000 from the total prize pool of $3,936,000. The runner-up cashed $770,000 in prize money. Talking about his victory Nemeth added, “It is so surreal to play for the very first time and win. I want to pinch myself. It is expensive, and I know a few guys who know how to play, and it seems very complicated. Winning this tournament helps. So maybe, We’ll see.”
The heads-up play was an all-Hungarian match that did not last long. Nemeth’s pair of aces beat Bujtas’ king-queen. Some of the well-known players who made it to the top spots were Phil Ivey, Jason Koon, Stephen Chidwick, and Michael Addamo. Take a look at the top 11 payouts from the Triton event:
