Linus LLinusLLove Loeliger Takes Down Triton £25k Turbo For £690,000

Linus LLinusLLove Loeliger landed his first major career win by taking down the £25k Triton Poker Six-Max Turbo tournament in London, a £690,000 ($840,039) payday to add to his 3rd place barely 12 hours before in the £50k event…

The online cash game and MTT beast is something of a rarity on the live tables, and until barely two years ago was an anonymous crusher – finally ‘coming out’ at the PokerStars Barcelona Championship €50k High Roller after his identity was pegged on the 2+2 forum.

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

His Turbo win at the Triton London Super High Roller Series saw him outlast an extremely strong unofficial final table – the seven players sitting out for a couple of days while the Triton Million spectacle ran its course – Aaron Zang emerging as the winner of that and the £19million top prize.

Loeliger took care of the first two bustouts of the day, first Michael Soyza and then Kahle Burns falling to Loeliger’s pocket sixes and queens respectively.

Elior CrazyElior Sion was next to depart at the hands of Luc Greenwood, but it was Cary Katz’s exit in 4th that really caught the eye…

♦ ♥ ♣ ♠

Katz: 4♣ 4♥
Greenwood: 7♣ 7♠
Flop: 4♦ 6♣ 9♦

Katz’s set now had him way ahead, but…

Turn: 5♦

“Oh that’s terrible!” Katz exclaimed as Greenwood picked up additional outs, but there was worse to come…

River: 3♦

“What the hell was that run-out?” was all Katz could muster as he left shell-shocked in 4th spot for £251,000.

It didn’t take too much effort for Loeliger to dispose of his two opponents, a massive hand that cracked Greenwood’s aces and left fellow Canadian Tim Adams equally short-stacked.

First Adams, and then Greenwood were picked off, and the Turbo title belonged to Linus Loeliger – the young Swiss pro stating afterwards: “Compared to yesterday it was pretty smooth…I still got seven-and-a-half hours sleep…I had to skip breakfast though.”

Final results

1 Linus Loeliger £690,000

4 Cary Katz £251,500
