Billionaire hedge-fund trader Bill Perkins became the 50th player to put up the £1,050,000 buy-in for Triton Poker’s  Helping Hand for Charity tournament in London, due to start later this week…


The total entry so far in what is the biggest buy-in event in the history of the game means that at least $2.5 million will be going to charitable causes – the £50k juice on top of each £1million entry being distributed to various UK and Asian charities.


Perkins is one of the keenest amateurs in the poker community and the man behind The Thirst Lounge and its team of poker content streamers.

He will join the likes of legendary pros Tom Dwan, Daniel Jungleman Cates, Sam Trickett and Jason Koon, as well a host of amateurs/businessmen in the unique event.

The rules for the Triton charity tournament – just one, though by far the biggest, of many Super High Roller buy-ins on the schedule state that pros can only play if invited by non-pro entrants.

Paul Phua invited Tom Dwan, while Rob Yong had Sam Trickett’s back, but Perkins, it seems, has yet to decide who his choice among the highroller pros is to be…


The negotiations, in general, will likely involve how much of the pros action should be handed over for the pleasure of a Triton London entry.

Fedor Holz, Leon Tsoukernik and Justin Bonomo were also among those recently revealed to be London-bound for the event, and the winner will likely be looking at a payday in the region of £10million.
