Major Rights in the World of Poker Entrusted to Protocol Sports Marketing
Protocol Sports Marketing is delighted to announce that it has signed an exclusive worldwide media rights distribution agreement with Triton Poker, organizer of the incredible Triton Poker Super High Roller Series – home to the largest prize in the history of competitive Poker. Started by Seng Chen “Richard” Yong and Wei-Seng “Paul” Phua, with a mandate to feature only the best Poker players in the world, Triton launched the Triton Super High Roller Series in 2016 which culminated in a London, United Kingdom event which featured an industry-record $ 1,250,000 USD entry fee, a grand prize in excess of $ 23,000,000 USD, and the best TV production ever assembled for a Poker competition.
In conjunction with this signing, Protocol Sports today announces the broadcast and streaming license availability of the newly-produced “Triton Super High Roller Series London” (10 x 60’, HD). The series, which features commentary by Poker legend Daniel “Kid Poker” Negreanu, captures the intense narrative, colorful personalities, high-stakes tension, defeat and elation that characterize this 7-day tournament.
Not only is this unprecedented production available for broadcast and streaming license right now – delivery via high-speed FTP or hard drive – but discussions are beginning with platforms all over the world to become exclusive licensees for upcoming Triton Super High Roller Series events.
“We are excited to work with Protocol Sports, who will introduce broadcaster and streaming platforms to Triton’s Poker tournaments and cash games – the very biggest and best in the world,” says Triton Poker Co-Founder Paul Phua. “Our goal at Triton has always been to grow the game of Poker around the world while making a significant philanthropic impact in our communities.”
Protocol Sports is ecstatic to represent the much sought-after Triton property. “Our relationship with Triton Poker Series represents a new chapter for Protocol,” says Protocol Sports Marketing President Lowell Conn. “Protocol’s goals are Triton’s goals. We will help Triton to build on its plans to host the biggest and most successful Poker tournaments that the world has ever seen, while sharing Triton’s values of sustainability and charity.”
