The Triton Super High Roller series in Montenegro continues. Two more events are in the book with American pro Bryn Kenney padding his stats for 2019. Kenney kicked off the year with a sick score Down Under by winning the Aussie Millions. Along the way, he had a good series at US Poker Open at the Aria. And although he didn't win it, Kenney took second place in another Triton event in Jeju, Korea for a $3.1 million score. Yeah, 2019 has been kind to the pro from New York.
And now, Brynn Kenney can add another high roller title to his resume with a victory in Event #2 HKD $500,000 NL 6-Max. Kenney faded a field of 79 players to win his latest title.
Kenney's final table included Daniel Dvoress, Ivan Leow, Sergio Aido, Jason Koon, and Christoph Vogelsang. Yeah, I know... the usual suspects.
German pro Vogelsang took sixth place for a HKD $2.3 million score. American pro and high roller specialist Jason Koon's run ended in fifth place. Spanish pro Segrio Aido hit the bricks in fourth place.
Ivan Leow, no stranger to these Tirton events, finished in third place for a little more than HKD $5 million. His elimination set up a heads-up battle between Bryn Kenney and Canadian pro Daniel Dvoress.
When the dust settled, Kenney emerged as the victor. Daniel Dvoress settled on second place. For a runner-up score, he earned HKD $7.4 million or approximately $94K USD.
Kenney won approximately $1.4 million in USD. His actual take home was HKD $11.23 million. Kenny now passed $32 million in winnings. According to Hendon Mob, he's ranked #6 all time.
Ihor Shkliaruk hit the bricks in sixth place, followed by German pro Steffen Sontheimer in fifth place. Leon Tsoukernik's deep run ended in fourth place. Canadian pro Peter Jetten took down third place. When Jetten busted, it set up a heads-up battle between Ike Haxton and Winfred Yu.
Haxton settled on another runner-up finish. In Event #1, Haxton and Steve O'Dwyer chopped, but O'Dwyer won the heads-up battle for the title, trophy, and small mound of cash.
Second place paid out HKD $1.37 million for Haxton, or approximately $174K USD.
For winning event #3, Yu took down HKD $2,040,000 or approximately $260K USD.
