The 2014 World Series of Poker ran the last mixed game of this year's series — Event #63: $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix — with Bryn Kenney taking down the top honors and his first gold bracelet as well as $153,220 in prize money!
Kenney had his determination-cap surgically attached to his head as he dominated from the very beginning. He was chip leader on Day 1, stayed in the top of the chips counts on Day 2, had second place chips locked up at the end of Day 2, returned with eight others on Day 3, shot into a substantial chip lead early and kept it — all the way to his first championship bracelet.
Final Table Payouts
The Ten-Game Mix is a rotation of 10 poker variants and the tables are short-handed to accommodate the number of cards needed for each game. The games played are: Razz, 2-7 Triple-Draw Lowball, 2-7 Single Draw Lowball, 7-Card Stud, 7-Card Stud High-Low Split, Pot-Limit Omaha, Omaha High-Low Split, Badugi, Limit Hold’em, and No Limit Hold’em. At least 445 WSOP 2014 attendees felt they were skilled enough to master all the games or they were desperately playing the last few events for a shot at a gold bracelet this year.
When the field narrowed down to two, it was Bryn Kenney and Jan Suchanek battling it out for the championship title. Kenney had the chip lead and Suchanek was able to fight back a few times in the limit games but it was No Limit Hold'em that sent him to the cashier in second-place.
Jan Suchanek button limped to face a raise to 33,000 from Bryn Kenney out of the big blind. Suchanek called.
The hit the flop. Kenney checked and Suchanek bet 105,000. Kenney called. Kenney checked again when the hit the turn. Suchanek bet 250,000 and Kenney called to see the river. Suchanek shoved for about 520,000 and Kenney wasted no time calling.
Suchanek turned over for two pair. Kenney held the — his trip nines were bringing home the gold bracelet and all the first place cash!
