Co-founder Triton Poker unexpectedly passes away

Shocking news on Saturday, September 17 comes from the co-founder of Triton Poker unexpectedly passed away from an apparent heart attack.

Ivan Leow’s passing came during the highly-successful Triton Cyprus. As a result, all remaining Triton Cyprus events, which began on September 5 and were slated to run through the 19th, have been canceled so those there have the opportunity to “mourn his passing together.”

“Ivan was a hugely popular member of the Triton family. He was warm, generous, and enormous fun both at the tables and off – a loyal friend to us all. He was also a fantastic poker player, with a lifelong passion for the game,” Triton Poker said in a statement.

According to The Hendon Mob, Leow had just over $13.1 million in lifetime tournament earnings dating back to 2015. That put him third on Malaysia’s all-time money list behind only Paul Phua and Richard Yong.

The final table of Event #12: $50,000 Short Deck Ante Only was postponed as a result of Leow’s passing.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the start of today’s stream has been delayed. We’ll be updating according on a new start time. Stay tuned,” Triton officials announced.
