Bryn Kenney emerged victorious at the PokerStars Championship Bahamas (PCB) $50K High Roller for $969,075, taking his career earnings to $13,153,881.

Speaking about his big win, the WSOP bracelet holder said:

“I was in ninth position with seven big blinds but I got my rush. Sometimes you just have to wait it out and fortunately good cards came. The right people busted, I got fortunate spots and was able to win it!”

The $50K High Roller, hosted by the Atlantis Resort and Casino in the Bahamas, drew 49 entries and 20 rebuys to create a prize pool worth $3,313,035.

Nine players made it to the final table and after a series of eliminations it was left for Kenney and Mustapha Kanit

As the duo went into the heads-up round, Kenney held a 2 to 1 chip lead over Kanit. After a tough duel, the final hand of the match was played when Kenney moved (A-J) all-in preflop. Kanit (9-9) made the call and the dealer laid out a Q-J-2-7-3 board. That was it then and Kanit had to be happy with a second place finish for $695,740, while Bryn Kenney bagged the title. 

“It was a close heads-up match. First I had a nice lead and then he took the lead. Then I showed him a bluff where he could’ve closed the game if he would’ve called there on the river. Fortunately, he didn’t,” Kenney further added.

Final Table Results:

1: Bryn Kenney $969,075
2: Mustapha Kanit $695,740
3: Byron Kaverman $452,220
4: Daniel Colman $341,240
