Biography

Bryn Kenney is an American poker player with over $57.2 million in career earnings. He is also a WSOP bracelet winner, having won Event #63: $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix at the 2014 WSOP.

In April 2022, Kenney was accused of running a cult-like cheating operation by Martin Zamani. Kenney denied the claims on Twitter.

Poker Achievements

Kenney's first recorded poker cash came in the late 2000s. In 2009 he reached his first WSOP final table, and made his second the following year while also making a deep run in the 2010 WSOP Main Event where he would eventually finish 28th for $255,242.

This would remain the largest cash of his career until the following year where he finished third in the PCA $100,000 Super High Roller for $643,000.

Kenney was a regular on the European Poker Tour, cashing in San Remo, Prague, Campione, Berlin and Barcelona in the early 2010s. In 2013, he won the €10,250 Master Classics of Poker High Roller for €102,960.

In 2014, he won a WSOP bracelet in Event #63: $1,500 Six-Handed 10-Game Mix.

The first seven-figure score of Kenney's career would come in 2016 after defeating World Series of Poker Main Event champion Joe McKeehen heads up in the PCA $100K Super High Roller for $1,687,800

"It feels great, I didn't have a Super High Roller win, and no tournament win that you can be proud of, it was always third, second, in these big tournaments and to get a win is just the best," Kenney said after lifting the trophy.

Another $1m+ score would follow later that yeart in the Triton Manila Main Event, winning $1,401,694 after coming second to Wai Kin Yong.

The big scores kept on coming, with victory in the PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo €100,000 Super High Roller netting him close to $2m.

In August 2019, Kenney finished second to Aaron Zhang in the Triton Million for $20,537,187 after a heads-up deal.

Earlier that same year, Kenney won the Aussie Millions Main Event for A$1,272,598.
