Biography

Kevin MacPhee is a professional American poker player from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. He is best known fro winning the Season 6 European Poker Tour Main Event in Berlin for €1 million. He has another nine EPT cashes on his record including the eighth place finish at the EPT Sanremo Main Event in 2011. MacPhee also has ten World Series of Poker money finishes as well as two WPT cashes.

Intro

MacPhee was born in 1980. He started playing poker in 2003 in home games with his friends, and it took him five years to finally make a name for himself in the world of poker. He cashed in his first live event back in 2006, but it wasn't until 2008 that MacPhee had finally made his big breakthrough when he cashed in two WSOP and two EPT events as well as in one APPT event in Macau.

Background

Before he started playing poker, Kevin MacPhee, like many others of the kind, was a keen “Magic: the Gathering” player. He picked up poker in 2003 along with millions of other people worldwide fascinated by Chris Moneymaker's WSOP win. Although he's been playing poker ever since, MacPhee only got noticed in April 2008 when he broke the PokerStars Tournament Leader Board record.

World Series of Poker

MacPhee's first World Series of Poker money finish came in 2008 when he first final tabled the $1,500 Short-handed No-Limit Hold'em event and then finished in 140th place in the $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em event. MacPhee's best WSOP result came in 2010 when he scored a fifth place finish in the $2,500 Pot-Limit Hold'em/Omaha event taking home more than $60,000 in cash.
