PCA 2016: Bryn Kenney Wins $100k Super High Roller
American pro Bryn Kenney has taken down the first major title of the 2016 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
In previous years, Kenney had managed to reach two times the final table of PCA's $100,000 Super High Roller event, but both of those times he finished eventually in 3rd place just shy of the title.
However, this time he was able to go all the way, and after outlasting 2015 WSOP
Main Event champion Joe McKeehen in the heads-up play, Kenney walked away with the trophy and nearly $1,7 million.
"If you think about finishing third, then you might finish third again. I needed this trophy. I said when we got heads up, There's no way I'm not winning that.", 29-year-old Kenney said in his post-game interview.
The final table featured also Isaac Haxton, who recently parted ways with PokerStars. Haxton was eliminated after he moved in with T♠9♠ against Joe McKeehan's A♠K♠.
According to PokerStars Blog, Haxton took $360,060 for sixth and picked up a six-figure profit nonetheless despite having bought in twice.
