Triton Poker Series Jeju Main Event won by Timothy Adams for $3.5M

Tags: Bryn Kenney, Timothy Adams, Triton Poker.
Posted on 13 March 2019 by "T".

The Triton Poker Series Jeju Main Event has been won by Timothy Adams after he outlasted a player field of 38, winning the prize amount considered to be currently his biggest score ever in poker.

Before this tournament, the Canadian poker pro hasn't yet made a signature win in a six-figure buy-in event. This all changed when he defeated Bryn Kenney in heads-up play to win the HK$2 Million (US$254,779) buy-in Triton Poker Jeju NLHE Main Event (Event #6), taking home the title and the cash prize worth HK$27,760,500 (US$3.54 million).

This amount is the biggest score of his career to date, instantly dwarfing the $1,009,965 he won in 3rd place at a super high roller event of the Asia Championship of Poker in 2017. Thanks to this massive win, his live tournament earnings jumped to over $14.1 million. He is currently in 39th place on the All Time Money List.

The final showdown was between Bryn Kenney and Timothy Adams, with both having almost even chip counts. Even though Kenney's 6.31 million was significantly bigger than Adams' 5.69 million, the two of them decided to undergo a deal, leaving HK$4 million on the table and lock up on the following amounts:

Bryn Kenney: HK$24,039,500

Timothy Adams: HK$23,760,500

As the two started to play for the title and the remaining cash prize left on the table, their stacks were still notably big that most expected would go on for a while, but it looked like Lady Luck had other plans and made things in favor of Adams.

The final hand:

Timothy Adams had 8-5
Bryn Kenney got A-4

The board ran 4-3-4-5-5. While Kenney's hand was better at the start, better after the flop and turn, the last card though had favored Adams, and so the Canadian poker pro won in the end. Kenney muttered, "That's the nastiest run-out I've ever seen."

Adams said after he won, "I've been playing against Bryn since I was 19 or something, and now I'm 32. We've tons of experience, he's an amazing player. To win, it feels amazing. I obviously had to run very, very good, as I think most people have to win a poker tournament. I'm thrilled that it's me."

Many congratulations to Timothy Adams on winning this event and a massive $3.54 million. Just looking at the people who made the final table is frightening and this really must have taken some very special playing to win the whole thing

A high stakes game with the final table players who were tired. At the end, Justin Bonomo was there and congratulated Timothy Adams for this victory in this main tournament. Probably they are friends and had to support him like a real fan. Smile Congratulations to the players of the final table.

Three and a half million dollars is of course a huge amount ... taking into account the 28 players, winning was probably quite simple .... although those who could afford the entry fee were also great players .... he was very lucky .... My congratulations with a huge win

Very interesting last hand to have set of 4s and then of turn and river opponent gets higher set of 5s... I think this is disaster if not have heads up deal. But too this hand won title and about half million money and this is many money

Funny though that not one asian made it onto the final table tbh even though the company marketing heavily towards them and the event were held in Korea...

A very small player field to beat in order to get the top prize, but not easy
in this level to do. Not easy at all.
And the buy in was a quarter of a million USD Smile. You would need deep pockets also.
The prize was a good one, even if it was one after a deal with the last two players.
