After reaching $30 million, Sam Greenwood decided to challenge Negreanu.
After his recent win in Triton Series Event #15, he surpassed fellow Canadian Timothy Adams and now sits in second place on Canada’s All Time Money List, behind only Daniel Negreanu.
Over $30 million and taking aim at Negreanu: Sam Greenwood
On Tuesday, a turbo tournament concluded the Triton Series of Vietnam, and the winner, Sam Greenwood, earned enough money to earn a spot on the Canadian All-Time Money List.
S. Greenwood, Sam
Triton Vietnam’s last tournament included ITM players.
While playing Short Deck, the low stacks and high stakes are par for the course in turbo events with fast increasing blind structures. The trip to the east coast of Vietnam was in jeopardy, but this event, with an entrance price of US$20,000, offered a final opportunity to save the vacation.
The players’ familiarity with the push/fold tables, along with some good fortune, made for an entertaining dynamic.
After facing off against the runner-up, Lun Loon, in a head-to-head match, Greenwood was able to combine the two strategies and emerge victorious. Greenwood’s first Triton championship should be marked with an asterisk since it was earned during the tournament in Cyprus that was called off after Ivan Leow’s untimely death. At that point in the race, Greenwood had a commanding lead and was crowned the victor.
This time, however, they were successful in every aspect of the game, and the Canadian player took home $207,000, the Shamballa Diamonds bracelet, and the trophy.
Sam Greenwood, a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, is a major player in the game. Hendon Mob reports that his total live tournament wins exceed $30.8 million, with a maximum ITM of $3,276,760. When it comes to Canadians, only Daniel Negreanu has won more than $50 million, making him the second-biggest winner in history and the 17th overall. Greenwood’s latest victory put him ahead of Timothy Adams, who was previously worth $30.7 million.
