Bryn Kenney Claims Top Spot in All-Time Money List with Triton Poker Invitational Victory

Bryn Kenney secured the top spot at the Triton Poker NLH $250K Luxon Invitational, taking home the prestigious trophy and the $6,860,000 prize. Not only did this victory cement his status as an elite player, but it also took him right back to the forefront of poker’s all-time money list.

Competing fiercely against Talal Shakerchi heads up, Kenney took the title after an unexpectedly short day at the renowned JW Marriott Grosvenor House. The second place was an impressive accomplishment for Shakerchi as well, earning him a sizeable $4,650,000.

With a total of 118 participants, including accomplished businessmen and seasoned poker professionals, this tournament boasted a stunning $29,500,000 prize pool.

As the tournament advanced into Day 2, some notable players, including Phil Ivey and Espen Jorstad, unfortunately failed to make the cut. Jason Koon, who walked away with $342,000, managed to scrape through to the money with just one and a half big blinds to his name. Other key players who achieved a return on their stakes included Patrik Antonius with $455,000, Stephen Chidwick with $501,000, and Christoph Vogelsang with $575,000.

Before entering the Triton event, Kenney trailed just behind Justin Bonomo, with his Hendon Mob earnings totalling $57,969,392 compared to Bonomo’s $61,956,381. However, with this latest victory, Kenney has surpassed all rivals, and now leads the all-time money list, boasting $64,829,392 in total earnings.

After the event, Kenney spoke about his win, stating “It’s so surreal, it’s crazy. Still, I don’t know where I am really. But I’m at a good place, at the end of the tournament, standing here. And still standing, fortunately, after using a whole lot of energy to focus and try to be as much in the moment as possible in the tournament.”

Despite Kenney’s indisputable on-table successes, he’s faced his share of controversy in the poker community. He refuted allegations made by Martin Zamani concerning multi-accounting, ghosting, and other online poker cheating methods. Regardless of these claims, Kenney continues to participate in select live tournament series. He recently secured the second position in the $10,000 seven-card stud eight-or-better championship at the World Series of Poker, falling just short of securing his second bracelet.

The final table saw the comeback of Chris Moneymaker, laddering up for a $2M+ prize as he finished in 5th place. Thai pro Punnat Punsri, who is having a great year so far, finished in third and added a little over $3M to his earnings.
