The win was the largest single cash win for the Canadian poker player who now boasts of a total of $14 million in live tournament earnings.

With a total of 48 entries, including 16 reentries, the even generated a humongous prize pool of HKD 90,400,000 or $11,491,541 which is about as big enough to get any high-stakes player excited. Six of the players who participated in the event cashed in and five them managed to walk away with $1 million in prize money.

The Main Event Results

Player                                 Country               Prize (HKD)                        Prize (USD)

Timothy Adams                Canada                HKD 27,760,500*             $3,536,550*

Bryn Kenney                      United States     HKD 24,039,500*            $3,062,513*

Dan Smith                          United States     HKD 13,600,000                $1,732,572

Peter Jetten                       Canada                HKD 10,390,000                $1,323,634

David Peters                      United States     HKD 8,150,000                  $1,038,269

Isaac Haxton                      United States     HKD 6,300,000                  $802,589

Timothy Adams reportedly entered the six-max final table with a significant chip lead and 107 big blinds – Bryn Kenney came in at a distant second with 64 big blinds. Dan Smith, Peter Jetten, and David Smith, trailed behind Kenney with 12-16 big blind stacks while Isaac, who eventually won the least amounts, entered with just 25 big blinds.

Surprisingly, instead of the shorter stacked players, Isaac Haxton was the first player to be eliminated after he three-bet jammed ace-ten and was unable to get there against Kenney’s kings. David Peters was eliminated in the very next hand when he jammed for 10 big blinds from a small blind with ace-the – this did not hold after Jetten called with king-ten suited from the big blind. Jetten followed in David Peters shortly after when he jammed with a king-nine suited king-high flop. Kenney called with a set holding pocket kings and this is what had Jetten eliminated.

Dan Smith came in third after when his king-eight failed to get there against Kenney’s ace-deuce. In the final stages of the game, Kenney entered the heads-up play in a marginal chip lead against Mr. Adams with the duo eventually ending up striking a deal with each other – this deal saw them lock up over $3,000,000 with nearly $500,000 left to play.

After three hours of play, Timothy Adams emerged victorious with Mr. Kenney coming in second and, as it turns out, the wins they got from the tournaments were the biggest ones they have ever gotten in their careers.
