The second event has just crowned its first millionaire at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Montenegro, and it was Bryn Kenney who defeated a field of 79 entries to win the top prize of $1.4 million!
Triton Poker SHR Series Montenegro 2019 Event #2: HK$500,000 6-Max Hold'em Venue: Maestral Resort & Casino in Budva, Montenegro When: May 5-6, 2019 (Sunday and Monday) Entries: 79 (includes 34 re-entries)
The 32-year-old Kenney outlasted this tournament's participants including the likes of Steve O'Dwyer, Tony G, Linus Loeliger, Triton founder Richard Yong, and Team partypoker pros Jason Koon and Mikita Badziakouski. Even the chip leaders from Day 1 of this event, Xuan Tuan and Erik Seidel, went out on the bubble. The event had a total of 79 player entries, including 34 re-entries.
The nine top players were guaranteed a nice payout of at least HKD 1,080,000 (US$140,400) each:
As soon as the official final table started, Jason Koon sent Christoph Vogelsang home in 6th place with his pocket sixes. Bad luck for Koon because his name was next on the chopping block as his pocket Jacks were no match for Kenney's pocket Kings, leaving the Triton Poker ambassador in 5th place.
Daniel Dvoress from Canada then eliminated Sergio Aido in 4th place and Ivan Leow in 3rd, and so in the end it was just him and Kenney on a heads-up battle for first place.
Dvoress at first was in the lead but Kenney quickly was able to reverse the situation and stayed strong.
Watch the final hand here:
Kenney said after he won, "I made a lot of really good value bets, really good bluffs, played really ferocious, feel real strong. When you get in such a zone for a while, you can only really think about cards. I feel great, just because I only really care about how I play."
Adding this achievement to his portfolio, Bryn Kenney's total live earnings now is over the $32.2 million mark, according to the Hendon Mob.
Triton Poker SHR Montenegro 2019 Event #2 Final Table Results
Impressive. Very high prizes and the last hand was played with all in A diamond 6 vs. K T. Four diamonds came on the table with turn and river. It's strange for me to play an all in this way. 1st place won 1,459,000 and the second place 965,900, but to risk all stack with A6 and KT is too exaggerated, if we make a comparison between these not so good cardss and the sums of money. I did not expect for this series to have such a big tournaments. European poker is up.
It was a questionable hand I did not understand the allin pre-flop with A6 was very lucky and managed to win the hand that gave him the title, on the other hand, the call of Dvoress with KT is understandable because his stack got lucky on the flop but the river was very sick. However, losing a hand like that and receiving the prize of $ 965,900 is not bad at the end of a good tournament.
some great names on this tournament,big buy in for all normal poker players,arround 70 K dollars and thats why we have such a great prize pool and nice amount for every player on final table!this players for big and dont care much about money,so cant comment this hand on all in!
Great tournaments and big congratulations Bryn Kenney for win 1.46m, thats huge prizes but we need to say that buy in was too huge. Also congratulations to Daniel for second places, he play good but at end he didnt have lucky with flop and river. GG boys
One and a half million dollars is certainly a wonderful prize ... but considering that the entry fee was big enough, it was certainly a big risk ..... a tournament for people with big money who may have a chance And not have any problems ... in any case the winner is cool
This is a game to win. For sure we have seen bigger prizes than this one, but can you say this is not a "respectable" one? It had rebuys, but there werent many players in, which made things a bit easier, to win the game, if you dont take in mind that probably all of them were professionals
well when you had this kind of buy in and on you can say private tournament in montenegro,then you can expect lot of players!its not like its in macao or las vegas and that you will have lot of players!for me this number is more then I would expect!dont know what number was on other tournaments!
I not very understand why ig poker names come to play big buyin tournament in place like Montenegro, not say it is bad place but it is very small country and no reason to play here just because organizers want to do this way. 79 players is of course not very much but many big names.
why do you think that on any other place on earth they would have more players then in budva (montenegro) ?with this kind of buy in,there would be problem to bring more players!its not easy to find lot of players,who can have 70000 $ for buy in and who can travel on every place on earth!budva is on sea,probably they dont pay any tax on winnings and everything is great for players!
well you can be party of this series,but you must have lot of money on bank account,which I dont think that you have!buy in is 70000 $ and you dont have lot of players that have this kind of money for buy in!they have other tournaments whit smaller buy in,but again thats also in thousands of dollars!
