Kenney has been rather quiet since his incredible $20,563,324 runner-up spot at the Triton Poker SHR in London vaulted him to top spot in the tournament earnings list.
Yesterday he returned for the final table at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, with Jason Mercier and Anthony Zinno among the contenders for the first-ever Rock ‘N Roll High Roller.
Rainer Kempe and Erik Seidel were among the 45 entries paying the $25,500 buy-in, but missed out on a share of the $1,115,500 prizepool.
Mercier was chasing his 4th SHRPO High Roller title, but his deep run would end in 4th place, a $111,150 cash after running into Kenney’s pocket kings…
Kenney: K♠ K♥
Mercier: A♥ Q♣
Board: J♣ 8♥ 4♠ 3♥ 3♦
When Jerry Robinson fell in 3rd for $161,170 it left Kenney and Brock Wilson to fight for the trophy and more than $650k, but when Wilson managed a double-up the players started talking deal numbers.
With a 2:1 chip advantage, Kenney settled for $354,565 and the trophy, Wilson adding $301,215 to his partypoker MILLIONS $619,536 runner-up cash in the Bahamas $25k two weeks ago.
“It was a fun time,” Kenney said afterwards, adding: “Two days, 45 players, in a nice city. Great weather and I’m going to the beach now. It’s perfect.”

Final results:

1 Bryn Kenney $354,565 *
2 Brock Wilson $301,215 *
3 Jerry Robinson $161,170
4 Jason Mercier $111,150
5 Anthony Zinno $77,805

7 Lazaro Hernandez $44,460
