Triton Poker cancelled their upcoming 2020 Triton SHR Jeju Series “until further notice.”
In a note published on Friday, Triton Poker explain that the decision comes as a consequence of the coronavirus outbreak and the “global emergency”.
It’s with a heavy heart that we inform you of the postponement of the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Jeju after the World Health Organisation (WHO) called the Coronavirus outbreak a ‘Public Health Emergency.’
Since the Coronoavirus first leapt from animals to humans in China a few weeks ago, close to 10,000 people have been infected, and it’s killed more than 200. All of the deaths have been inside China, but the virus has spread to more than a dozen countries.
The safety of our players and support staff remains our utmost priority. Coupled with our duty to do everything we can in our power to prevent the virus from spreading, we’ve taken the difficult but correct stop of postponing the event with immediate effect.
The thoughts and prayers of the Triton Poker Team are with the families of those that have lost their lives and for the ones fighting the virus all over the world.
Another official announcement in regards to the potential resurrection of the event will be made on February 10th, 2020.
