The final mixed game event of the 2014 World Series of Poker has officially come to a close with none other than Bryn Kenney earning his first gold bracelet as well as $153,220 in prize money!
Kenney dominated this tournament from the very beginning, bagging up the chip lead on Day 1. From there, Kenney continued to keep his seat at the top of the chip counts, remaining in the top ten chip counts throughout Day 2 and ultimately bagging second place chips to end the day. With just nine players remaining for Day 3, Kenney shot out to a substantial chip lead early and rode that all of the way to his first championship bracelet.
The day began with short-stacked David Blatte being eliminated from play during the first orbit of pot-limit Omaha. Following Blattte out the door was Haresh Thaker, prompting a total re-draw to the unofficial final table of seven. That unofficial final table quickly became official, as Michael Mixer was eliminated from play as the official final table bubble boy.
Randy Ohel came into the day looking for his second WSOP bracelet, but ended up falling as the first casualty of the final table. During pot-limit Omaha, Ohel made a full house on the river but ended up shipping all in into Daniel Zack's flopped quads. After Ohel's elimination, five-handed play wore on for quite some time. Ultimately it was Andrey Zaichenko who was next to go after shipping all in into Fabio Coppola's pocket kings in limit hold'em. Zaichenko did not improve and was forced to settle for fifth place.
Zack was eliminated in fourth place when he failed to make a four-card badugi against Jan Suchanek's jack badugi. Soon after, Copolla became the third place finisher after an unfortunate hand of no-limit 2-7 single draw.
This left Kenney heads up with Suchanek for the bracelet with Kenney holding a significant chip lead. Despite Suchanek being able to battle back in a few of the limit games, it was ultimately no-limit hold'em that did him in. On the final hand, Suchanek three-barreled on each street after flopping a pair of deuces against Kenney's turned trip nines. Kenney called the shove on the river and was awarded the bracelet.
