Professional poker ace Bryn Kenney has been playing the game for almost a decade now and is not likely to quit the game any time soon. He has tried both the online and offline versions of the card game and has continued his focus on attending tournaments that are organized across the world. Since the first time Brian Kenney won a Black Friday event he has maintained a steadfast record of cashing in on $5.6 million by making it to final tables at poker tournaments nearly 34 times. The resident of New York has recently won seven figure sum at PokerStars Caribbean Adventure.
Bryn’s early days with gambling
Watching him display an excellent photographic memory, his mother urged him on to excel at Magic: The Gathering Community, which has more than 12 million participants from across the world. By the time he was 12 he was the number one player of Magic in the world in the under 15 category. He later gravitated to $20 poker games with friends and later opened an online poker account to play serious poker. Worried about his obsession for the game his mother urged him to complete a college degree which he never did and quit studies after graduating from high school.
Becoming a pro and tournament success
Kenney’s life as a poker pro began when he was 20 after his meeting with Zack Stewart in Bahamas who took him to Los Angeles and invited him to play at Commerce by offering him a stake. He learnt the ropes of professional poker and went on to finish third at PokerStars Caribbean Adventure of 2011 earning a fantastic amount of $643,000. That year he toured the tournament circuits more closely and reached the main event of Bellagio Cup and also won a side event at European Poker Tour. During 2012 he reached final tables of 10 European poker events and won $229,900.
