Scheduled to start on 17th February 2022, the 13-day live poker festival is not pushed for a future time as a precautionary measure.
Andy Wong, CEO of Triton Poker Series commented on the situation and said, “We’ve been incredibly humbled by the interest our first 2022 event of the season has garnered, however, disappointed that current circumstances impedes us from hosting and broadcasting the live Bali tournament. The health and safety of our players, partners, and team is always a priority and we look forward to returning to host these exclusive live tournaments to our audiences anytime, anywhere with the high-level poker entertainment.”
