The PokerStars Caribbean Adventure series 2016’s first weekend was really interesting. It had really disturbing and exciting moments.
In the disturbing section,
well known poker player Antonio Esfandiari was asked to quit as he made an improvised toilet at the poker table. When he just could not hold ‘it’ during a US$5,300 PLO event, he decided to give it a go under the table. His behavior forced him to leave the tournament in the middle.
But he was not the only one who made some headlines in the Bahamas. Joe McKeehen snatched one of the most commanding performances ever at World Series of Poker Main Event final table back in November. Till getting wide-awake with Bryn Kenney in the $100000 Super High Roller event at PCA, Bryn McKeehen appeared to be on his way to another award.
When heads-up play started, Bryn held a slight chip lead over the world champ. But that quickly lead deteriorated and Bryn found himself down to only ten big blinds at one point. Following a series of double-ups, Bryn took a great lead, which held up, offering him the tournament championship as well as the US$ 1687800 that goes with it. That money put Kenney over US$8 million in lifetime live tournament winnings, good for fifty-first of all time as of this writing.
Isaac Haxton got in 6th place, David Peters finished fifth, Mustapha Kanit ended fourth, and Ankush Mandavia ended third.
