Triple Crown (poker)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In poker, the term Triple Crown is used for winning a poker title on all three of the major poker tours: the World Series of Poker (a WSOP bracelet), the World Poker Tour (WPT) and the European Poker Tour (EPT, rebranded as the PokerStars Championship during 2017).[1][2]

So far, only eight players have completed the feat: Gavin Griffin,[3][4] Roland De Wolfe,[5] Jake Cody,[6] Bertrand Grospellier[7], Davidi Kitai[8], Mohsin Charania[9], Harrison Gimbel[10] and Niall Farrell[11]. In 2008, Griffin won his first World Poker Tour title, becoming the first to complete the feat.

On January 25, 2010, Cody won the EPT Deauville. He followed that up on September 4, 2010, Cody won the WPT London Poker Classic, and then, he completed the crown on June 4, 2011. It took him 1 year, 4 months, 11 days, which is the quickest of the seven.[12]
