Bryn Kenney Wins WSOP Event #63 for $153,220

The World Series of Poker Event #63, $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix, has come to an end after three days of playing the special poker event. A total of 445 players entered in the tournament where they needed to be able to play multiple different poker variants, creating a prize pool of $600,750 for the players to battle it out over.

The winner was Bryn Kenney, who played solid poker throughout the entire tournament and had a solid chiplead when the final day three started. Kenney quickly busted out a few guys and the final table could start, where the players began falling out just as quickly, providing us with a heads-up match relatively quickly.

The heads-up match was between Kenney and Jan Suchanek, who were more or less even in chips throughout their duel, but as things goes, one of them had to lose. The final hand came after six hours of play, where the variant the two are battling it out in is Texas Hold’em and blinds are 6,000/12,000 with ante of 3,000.

Suchanek limped in from the button pre-flop, Kenney raised to 33,000 from the big blind and Suchanek called. Flop came  and Suchanek fired a 105,000 bullet after Kenney checked to him. Kenney called and the turn showed  and this time Suchanek bet 250,000 after being checked to. Once again Kenney called and the river came . This time Suchanek pushed all-in for around 500,000 after being checked to and Kenney snap-called.
