Brynn Kenney kicked off 2019 with a victory down under. Kenney shipped the Aussie Millions Main Event two weeks earlier. And now he has a USPO title under his belt. Kenney banked $450,000 for fading 60 runners in USPO Event #7 $25,000 NL. His final table included Ben Yu, Jake Schindler, Nick Petrangelo, Nick Schulman, and Keith Tilston.


When you're running good, you're running good. Bryn Kenney flew to Australia and binked the Aussie Millions for $1.27M Aussie Bucks. That's approximately $923K in USD depending on which way the dollar winds blow. Two weeks after his sick score in Oz, Kenney flew back home to the States to play against the premier pros in the world at the 2019 US Poker Open.

Aria hosted the annual USPO event once again. Stevie Chidwick is running away with the overall USPO title after winning two out of the first six events, including the first one. Sean Winter is in the middle of his own hot streak with four final tables in the first four events, including a victory in Event #4. But in a rare situation, Winter and Chidwick were nowhere close to the final table in USPO Event #7. This $25K event attracted 60 runners and the first-place prize had Kenney's name written all over it.

Dan Shak bubbled off the final table in seventh place. With six remaining, Ben Yu led charge. Also at his final table were Nick Schulman, Keith Tilston, Nick Petrangelo, and Brynn Kenny.

Ben Yu headed into the final table with the Big Stack and almost more (3.1M) than the next three players. Bryn Kenney was fourth overall with a shade over 1M. Little did anyone know that he was a famished shark ready to feast of four others at the final table.

Like the beginning of a horror flick, everyone wondered who would be the first victim. Nick Petrangelo hit the bricks when he was murked in sixth place. Nick Schulman went deep, but he couldn't do better than fifth place. At least he banked six-figures.

Keith Tilston was picked off in fourth place. Ben Yu started out as the biggie, but he couldn't last longer than third place. Yu banked $210K, which is not too shabby for a third-place finish. With Yu's elimination, a heads-up battle was set between Kenney and Jake Schindler. Like the rest of the final table, heads up did not last very long. Schindler could not defeat Kenny heads up. He fell by the wayside and settled on a runner-up share worth $300,000.

Bryn Kenney earned $450,000 for the victory in Event #7. That marked his second big-time win in 2019. First Aussie Millions, and now an USPO title.

The biggest shocker in this event was that neither Sean Winter, not Stevie Chidwick final tabled or outright won this one!

Only the top nine places paid out. Martin Zamani busted in eighth place but cashed. Lauren Roberts, Event #3 winner, earned a min-cash in Event #7.
