Bryn Kenney's 2017 Just Got A Whole Lot Better

Bryn Kenney's 2017 Just Got A Whole Lot BetterUS pro Bryn Kenney has been on an impressive heater since taking down the 2016 PCA $100,000 Super High Roller in January for $1,687,800, and over the past 16 months has racked up more than $10 million in tournament winnings, with the seat of his latest victory being the wealthy city-state of Monte Carlo.
Kenney was visiting the world-famous Monte-Carlo Casino in order to take part in the PokerStars Championship tour, with one of the tournaments he entered being the €100,000 Super High Roller. The event attracted a total of 61 entries to create a prize pool of €5,948,415, and following four days of action Kenney managed to make his way past the field, including Russia’s Viacheslav Buldygin heads-up, to claim the biggest score of his career worth €1,784,500 ($1,946,911).
Kenney started the final phase of the Super High Roller with a 5-to-1 chip advantage over his remaining opponent, and in the deciding hand his pocket twos beat Viacheslav’s K-Q on a 6-3-2-9-8 board to earn him the PSC title.
The 30-year-old pro has now won $5.1 million in 2017 alone, including winning the PCA $50k No Limit Hold’em event for $969,075, and as a result now sits at number 15 on poker’s ‘All Time Money List’ with career earnings of $17,161,701. Back in 2014, Kenney also picked up a coveted gold bracelet after taking down the $1,500 10-Game Mix Six Handed for $153,220, and amongst his other impressive accolades is a runner-up finish in 2016 at the Triton Super High Roller Series main event for $1,401,694. Commenting on his remarkable run over the past year-and-a-half, Kenney stated:
“It’s just where I feel the most comfortable, I guess. I’ve just been playing lights out. Everything’s been going really smooth this year. I’m just feeling good and playing good.”

1: Bryn Kenney $1,944,302
