Bryn Kenney has made it to the final table of PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100000 no-limit hold’em 8-max super high roller tournament for 3 years in a row. After back-to-back 3rd position ends, the twenty nine year old poker professional from Long Beach, California has finally broken through, making it to the top of the field of 58 entries to win the 2016 running and the 1st spot prize of $1687800.
Now, Kenney has over US$ 8.2 million in the lifetime live event earnings, with around US$ 3.2 million of that total coming from his rich runs from just this event. This was his very first top title and his 1st 7-figure rack up, although he has fifteen total titles over his playing career.
As a chip leader Bryn entered the final table of the event. He was joined by David Peters, Ankush Mandavia, Isaac Haxton, Mustapha Kanit, as well as current World Series of Poker main event winner Joseph McKeehen.
Bryn lived to heads-up play agreeing 7945000 in chips to Joseph’s 6550000. The duo fought it out for forty-six hands. By the time when final hole cards were dished out, Bryn had extended his lead to around 2-to-1.
Along with the title and the US$1.7 million prize, Bryn also scored six-hundred Card Player of the Year points that moved him into a tie for the 2nd spot in the present POY standings. David Peters got 250 for his 5th place ending.
