Bryn Kenney isn’t the only whit-hot New Yorker making recent headlines. King Kenney won his second-career PokerStars $100,000 Super High Roller this past week in Monte Carlo, recording a career-best score and pushing himself over the $5,000,000 mark in 2017 earnings in the process. Kenney shot out of the gates, cashing in nearly every PokerStars Championship Bahamas High Roller, and has kept pace through the spring.
He’ll now enter the Super High Roller Bowl and the World Series of Poker as the hottest player in poker. Kenney will hope to keep his run going throughout the summer, along with the hottest player in baseball.
Through the first month of the season, New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge has crushed, literally. The rookie outfielder, he was technically called up late last year but only appeared in 27 games, leads Major League Baseball in homeruns, with 13, and is in the top-three of the RBI leader board.
The 6’7”, 282 lbs. behemoth has already been called the future of the New York Yankees and for the 27-time World Series champs, the future may be now. The Yankees have the best record in the American League and even though it is very early in the season, the East Coaster in me is hopeful.
So, who is going to slow down first? With Judge belting six homeruns in his last six games and Kenney recording six six-figure or better scores since the start of February, the correct answer might be neither.
