Timothy Adams takes down Triton London Main Event for $4M

The $125K buy-in was worth it as he counted his winnings

For the second time in his career, Timothy Adams has won a Triton Main Event title after taking the $125,000 buy-in Triton Poker London Main Event to win the $4,185,000 prize. The last time he won was in 2019 at Jeju (South Korea), when he took home $3,536,550. He’s the third player to win more than one Triton Main Event.

Adams started the final table in the middle of the group in chips but was well within striking distance of the leaders. Jean Norel Thorel held a substantial chip advantage leading up to heads-up play with 24 million chips compared to Adams’ 13 million.

Adams had closed the gap thanks to sending Daniel “Jungleman” Cates home in third place ($1,940,000). The eventual winner quickly doubled up after he and Thorel flopped top pair, with Adams holding the better kicker.

Adams had a slight chip lead of 20.25 million to 17.525 million before he says he got lucky. With all the chips in the middle, Thorel held Nines against Adams’ Eights pre-flop and was a huge favorite to win the hand. The flop was 7-K-Q, the turn was a 6, and the river was an 8, giving Adams the set and the victory. Thorel would earn $2,830,000 for finishing as runner-up.

“When we got it in, it was a bit of a cooler,” Adams said after his win. “I thought that would be it for me. I couldn’t believe it when I smashed the eight on the river. I’m just lost for words because that was insane that I won this one. It was a battle heads-up. Jean Noel, hats off to him. He is an insane competitor, super tough to play against.”
