  • Players Remaining: Complete

Chris Kennedy aka the “Seoul Assasin” traveled here from Harrisburg PA for not only the 1500, but also for both the 300 and 500 Big Stax XXVI events.  Not for a lack of trying, Kennedy fired 12 bullets in each even, however, he was unable to build any kind of momentum in the 300 to bag chips, and although he made day 2 of the 500, he busted out before the money.  Although the cash game pro was fully prepared to fire another 12 bullets in the 1500, it only took one this time.  Kennedy started day 2 with just around average in chips, and again day 3 in the middle of the pack.  He remained steady and rode out the swings to bring home the victory to the ‘hottest free agent in the poker community today.’
