Three of the four Poker Masters $50K prelim winners are now gone, which leaves Steffen Sontheimer as the last champ remaining. The latest to go was Bryn Kenney, who began the day in second place with $1,085,000 in Poker Masters earnings.
It happened when Ben Tollerene raised to 7,000 from the cutoff and Stephen Chidwick flatted from the button. Kenney then moved all in for 23,000 from the big blind, Tollerene put in a four-bet, and Chidwick got out of the way.
Kenny got it in good, and while the flop didn't hit Tollerene directly, it did give him a flush draw to go with his overs. The turn gave Tollerene counterfeit outs, but it was the on the river that would give him the win.
With that, Kenney's hopes of donning the purple jacket went up in smoke.
