Sveti Stefan, Budva, Montenegro.  Areal view on a sunny day.  Adriatic Sea.When people talk about the greatest poker players in the world, how often does Bryn Kenney's name get brought up?

Kenney has been absolutely mashing the high buy-in tournament scene for years and has added to his impressive results with two victories in this year's Triton Poker Montenegro series.

As a result of his two seven-figure scores this week, Kenney now has $34,799,417 in total lifetime tournament cashes, which puts him at #4 on the all-time money list.

Only Justin Bonomo ($44,626,825), Daniel Negreanu ($39,830,195) and Erik Seidel ($35,350,674) have cashed for more money in their careers.


Kenney started his week off by winning the HKD 500,000 No Limit Hold'em Six Max event for HKD 11,230,000, which works out to $1,432,264. The final table of this event was particularly tough, as it included players such as Jason Koon and Christoph Vogelsang. Kenney said that his "ferocious" play in this event helped to propel him to victory.

Momentum is certainly a thing in poker, and Kenney successfully used his strong momentum to take down the HKD 1,000,000 main event a few days later for HKD 21,300,000 ($2,713,876). Again, there are no weak players in Triton Poker tournaments, and Kenney had to earn every dollar of his prize money as he successfully navigated his way through a final table that was filled with the likes of Sam Greenwood, Erik Seidel and Jason Koon.


Kenney's $4 million+ in tournament cashes this past week helped him to move past the likes of David Peters and Fedor Holz on the all-time money list.

Now, with the World Series of Poker just a few weeks ago, Kenney appears poised to do some damage in the summer series.
