It was another banner day for one of poker’s winningest players as Bryn Kenney found himself back in the winner’s circle again after taking down the 2019 HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event for $2,713.859. Kenney outlasted an all-star final table that included runner-up Daniel Tang, Peter Jetten, Nikita Badziakouski, Sam Greenwood, Erik Seidel, Matthias Eibinger, Jason Koon and Triton Poker Series founder Paul Phua. Kenney’s over $2.7 million score is the second largest of his career, right behind his over $3.06M haul that he took home for his runner-up finish in Triton’s HK$2M Super High Roller Series Jeju Main Event in March. It’s his second victory of the Montenegro series, the first coming in Event #2 (HK$500,000 No Limit Hold’em Six Handed) where he won the $1,431,376 first-place prize. Kenney’s 2019 has been nothing short of incredible. According to The Hendon Mob, the New York pro has eight results this year, four of which are for victories - including his official first-place finish in the 2019 Aussie Millions Main Event. In total, Kenney has over $9.1 million in total earnings this year alone, putting him at the top of the list for 2019 earners. He has also jumped up two spots on the All-Time Money List to fourth place sitting only behind Erik Seidel (3rd), Daniel Negreanu (2nd) and list leader Justin Bonomo. HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event Final Table Results 1. Bryn Kenney - $2,713,859 (HK$21,300,000) 2. Daniel Tang - $1,796,498 (HK$14,100,000) 3. Peter Jetten - $1,223,148 (HK$9,600,000) 4. Nikita Badziakouski - $925,005 (HK$7,260,000) 5. Sam Greenwood - $719,873 (HK$5,650,000) 6. Paul Phua - $560,609 (HK$4,400,000) 7. Erik Seidel - $440,842 (HK$3,460,000) 8. Matthias Eibinger - $341,462 (HK$2,680,000) 9. Jason Koon - $261,193 (HK$2,050,000) Kenney’s Path To Victory Although the player pool for the Main Event was limited, a total of 44 players (plus their 31 re-entries) pushed the prize pool to HK$70,500,000 ($8,982,494 USD). When the final nine returned to play to a winner, there were plenty of short stacks at the table. One of them was Triton ambassador Jason Koon. After losing a flip and doubling up Paul Phua, Koon was sitting on five big blinds. He moved in on the button with [ac][7d]. Nikita Badziakouski reshoved to isolate Koon, holding [8c][8s]. However, Matthias Ebinger also got involved from the big blind, calling with [ad][qh]. While a queen did hit the flop, an eight turned and both Koon and Eibinger hit the rail. Koon, the shorter stack, would take ninth place for $261,193 while Eibinger settled for eighth place and $341,462. Seidel finished in seventh place when his short stack re-shove with [qh][9h] from the small blind was called by Badziakouski’s [as][td]. The pro from Belarus turned the ten-high flush to send Seidel out the door in seventh for $440,842. The final six battled for the better part of three levels, during which time Kenney began to accumulate chips from the then chip leader Badziakouski. Six handed, Kenney picked up pocket queens on the button and limped, the small blind folded and Paul Phua checked his option holding [7s][4d]. The flop brought both a seven and a queen, giving Kenney a lock on the hand. Phua, however, moved all in with his pair of sevens, practically drawing dead. Phua finished in sixth for $560,609. Greenwood was sitting on a short stack and from the cutoff, he limped with the [ad][qd]. Danny Tang completed in the small blind with the [ks][5d] and Badziakouski checked his option with the [kc][9h]. The flop came [2c][kd][4s] with both blinds flopping a pair. Checked to Greenwood he put out a min-bet. Tang made the call and Badziakouski put in a raise. Greenwood tank-shoved which got Tang to fold. Badziakouski tanked, fearing Greenwood has limped aces pre-flop. Eventually, Badziakouski made the call. The board bricked out for Greenwood who finished in fifth place adding $719,813 to his earnings, which is now more than $17.445M lifetime. Kenney and Badziakouski then got the two biggest stacks in on a massive flip as Badziakouski’s [ac][js] faced off against Kenney’s [7c][7s]. Kenney’s pair held and Badziakouski, who had led for the majority of the final table, ended up in fourth place taking home $925,005. After that hand, Kenney was a massive chip leader over both Jetten and Tang. Kenney took out Jetten in third place when his [th][9s] clipped Jetten’s [ks][6h]. Jetten picked up the second largest cash of his career, taking home $1,223,148. Finally, Danny Tang faced off against Kenney with 12-1 chip deficit. There was no coming back in this one as Kenney closed it out, making Tang the runner-up for $1,796,498. It is the first seven-figure cash of Tang’s career. For Kenney, the heater continues as the $2,713,859 first-place prize of the HK$1,000,000 Triton Montenegro Main Event is his third million dollar score in a row. The 2019 Triton Super High Roller Series Montenegro continues through May 17.
Somehow, Adrian Mateos is just 25 years old. The Winamax Poker Pro burst onto the scene by winning the 2013 World Series of Poker Europe Main Event. He's since gone on to win $19,423,996 in live tournaments after taking down the partypoker MILLIONS World Bahamas Main Event on Saturday for $1,162,805. The final day of the $10,000 buy-in event began with 23 players remaining from the 948-player field including Mateos, Alex Foxen, Ludovic Geilich, Philip Gruissem, Ryan Riess, Peter Jetten, and two former #1-ranked PocketFivers, Chris Hunichen and Andras Nemeth. [ptable zone="Global Poker Article Ad"][ptable zgone="888poker NJ"][ptable zone="GG Poker"] From that group only Mateos, Jetten and Hunichen survived to make the final table after Gruissem finished ninth to bubble the official final table. Hunichen started the final table with more than twice as many chips as the next biggest stack and it didn't take him long to find his first victim. With blinds at 2,000,000/4,000,000, Hunichen raised to 9,000,000 from with [poker card="6h"][poker card="6s"] before Gregory Baird re-raised to 44,000,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="7c"][poker card="7d"], leaving himself 1,000,000 behind. Hunichen raised again and Baird called. The [poker card="kh"][poker card="jd"][poker card="6c"] put Hunichen in control and neither the [poker card="9h"] turn or [poker card="ac"] river was enough to save Baird from an eighth-place finish. On the very next hand, Jetten, the man who dubbed 2019 as the 'Year of Action', saw his run end earlier than he had hoped. Action folded to Jetten in the cutoff and he moved all-in for 39,500,000 with [poker card="kd"][poker card="th"]. William Blais folded the button and Aaron Van Blarcum folded the small blind before Scott Wellenbach called from the big blind with [poker card="qd"][poker card="qs"]. The [poker card="6c"][poker card="6h"][poker card="5h"][poker card="6s"][poker card="td"] gave Jetten a rivered top-pair that was still only second best to Wellenbach and Jetten was eliminated in seventh. An hour passed and Wellenbach found himself on the winning end of another elimination hand. Wellenbach raised to 12,500,000 from the hijack with [poker card="ad"][poker card="8d"] before Oleg Mandzjuk moved all-in for 51,500,000 from the small blind with [poker card="5d"][poker card="4d"]. Wellenbach called. The [poker card="kd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"] flop gave both players a flush draw which came through on the [poker card="td"] turn leaving Mandzjuk drawing dead as the [poker card="6c"] river completed the board to officially eliminate him in sixth place. One hand later, Hunichen re-took the role of executioner after he raised to 12,000,000 from the cutoff with [poker card="qc"][poker card="th"]. William Blais made it 19,000,000 from the button with [poker card="as"][poker card="8d"] and Hunichen moved all-in and Blais called off his last 4,500,000. The [poker card="kc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="2s"] flop kept Blais in front. Hunichen picked up extra outs on the [poker card="9c"] turn and the [poker card="qh"] river gave Hunichen second pair and sent Blais home with a fifth-place finish. Wellenbach made quite the name for himself earlier this year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure Main Event when he vowed to donate all of his winnings to charity. He finished third there for $671,240. His MILLIONS World final table appearance gave him yet another opportunity to pick up a big score with charities the likely winner. Unfortunately for the Buddhist and Tibetan translator, he wasn't able to improve upon his previous finish. Action folded to Van Blarcum in the small blind and he moved all-in for 121,000,000 with [poker card="ad"][poker card="9h"] and Wellenbach called all-in for 45,500,000 with [poker card="qh"][poker card="5c"]. The board ran out [poker card="js"][poker card="7h"][poker card="7s"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"] to eliminate Wellenbach in fourth. Down to just three players, a chop negotiation began and eventually agreed to with Hunichen getting $1,097,195, Mateos pocketing $1,062,805, and Van Blarcum pocketing $970,000. The three players left $100,000 and the title to play for while also agreeing to halve the levels to 30 minutes each. Just 15 minutes later, Hunichen, who had the lead at the time the deal was agreed to, was on his way to the cashier cage. The former #1-ranked player on PocketFives moved all-in for 171,000 from the button with [poker card="ah"][poker card="3c"] only to have Van Blarcum move all-in over the top for 265,000,000 from the small blind with [poker card="ad"][poker card="kc"]. Mateos folded and the two players sweated the [poker card="ac"][poker card="9c"][poker card="9h"][poker card="5s"][poker card="kh"] runout that gave Van Blarcum top two pair and eliminated Hunichen in third. Mateos and Van Blarcum battled for 30 minutes before the Winamax pro was able to cap off yet another major victory. Down 6-1 in chips, Van Blarcum declared he would be all-in blind and then followed through with [poker card="tc"][poker card="2h"] after Mateos completed from the big blind with [poker card="jc"][poker card="9h"]. The [poker card="as"][poker card="9c"][poker card="8d"][poker card="qd"][poker card="6h"] runout eliminated Van Blarcum in second and gave Mateos the partypoker MILLIONS Main Event title. Mateos has now won the World Series of Poker Europe Main Event, the European Poker Tour Grand Final Main Event and the Caribbean Poker Party Main Event in the span of just over six years.
