The list of players who cashed out most in tournament play in 2019.The calendar has now entered into a new year, which means that the poker world is now looking forward to a fresh slate of tournaments, including the 2020 WSOP, PSPC and others.

One player who didn't want 2019 to end was surely Bryn Kenney, who finished 2019 with over $30 million in total cashes and finished the year as the biggest single winner in all of poker.

Kenney's ridiculous $30,321,414 propelled him up the all-time cash list, where he now sits in first place, ahead of the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Phil Hellmuth and Phil Ivey. Some traditionalists don't like the fact that a big score or two in some ultra high buy-in events can send someone soaring up the all-time cash list, though this is the poker world that we are now operating in, where massive buy-in events are played almost every week.

$20,563,324 of Kenney's over $30 million in cashes came from the Triton Million for Charity event, where he came in second (after a deal was made) for $20,563,324.

To be fair, however, Kenney had a number of other seven-figure cashes in 2019 - three more, in fact, at the Triton Montenegro Main Event (1st for $2,713,859), the 6-Handed event at Triton Montenegro (1st, $1,431,376) and the Triton Super High Roller Series Jeju Main Event (2nd, $3,062,513).

In addition, Kenney narrowly missed another seven-figure cash at the 2019 Aussie Millions main event, where he finished in 1st for $914,617.

On top of all of that success, Kenney also had four other live tournament cashes that were in excess of $100,000.

It was truly Kenney's year in 2019, and nobody else was really close.
