On Friday, Bryn Kenney entered his third PokerStars Caribbean Adventure $100,000 Super High Roller final table (there have only been six $100k PCA Super High Rollers).
Kenney had the chip lead when the cards were in the air and, after several hours of play, he had made it to heads-up against Joe McKeehan, the winner of the 2015 World Series of Poker Main Event.
The heads-up battle started after a scheduled dinner break, McKeehan was slightly behind with 6.5 million to Kenney's 7.9 million. Big pots went in both directions during the battle, but ultimately it was Kenney who played the best and became the champion of the tournament.
McKeehan received $1.22 million for his runner-up finish while Bryn Kenney received $1.68 million for his first-place finish! Kenney now has over $8.5 million in live tournament earnings!
