After a bit of a hiatus in light of the World Series of Poker Main Event ending and the world of poker taking a little two-week snoozer, the Poker Central Power Rankings have been brought back to life! It must come at no surprise that Bryn Kenney dominated the voting as he unanimously took the No. 1 spot over the actual Triton Millon winner, Aaron Zang, followed by Dan Smith and Stephen Chidwick. The only non-Triton names on the rankings this week are WSOP Main Event champion Hossein Ensan and Brandon Cantu who entertained the PokerGO fans with some exciting poker on Poker After Dark.
The Poker Central Power Rankings are voted on each week by five-panel members who use their own criteria to determine player relevance leading to a list of 25 players that score points from 65 down to 1. The criteria loosely include player results, social media influence, some good ol’ drama or other things of note that make ear perk up and our eyes grow bigger. Got beef with our decisions on a week-to-week basis? Hit us up on @PokerCentral on Twitter and jump into the conversation.

His ascend op the poker ranks has been steady since he first started battling in the high roller streets, culminating in him “winning” the Triton Million for a staggering $20 million. Kenney now leads the all-time money list with $55.5 million, more than $10 million ahead of Justin Bonomo who lead this list for the last year! Read all about Kenney’s road to No. 1 here, a recap of the final table here, and just give this Tweet I sent out on the weekend a look for some context on his journey.
