Early Life

Bryn Kenney was born in 1986 and grew up in Long Beach, New York. As a young kid, he started with Magic: The Gathering and became the No.1 player in the world for ages 15 and younger.

David Williams, a Magic: The Gathering player, inspired Bryn with his 2nd place finish in the WSOP Main Event for $3.5 million.

After that, the whole Magic community wanted to transition to poker and do the same since there was no money in Magic. After seeing that, Bryn said, “I’ve got to play poker.”

He started as an online grinder before getting staked for live events. His first recorded live cash was in 2007, where he came 2nd in the $1,000+70 No Limit Hold’em event and won $34,446.

In 2022, in a Twitter thread, Martin Zamani accused Kenney of running a cult-like online poker cheating operation.

The allegations were that Kenney made a deal with multiple players to collaborate and collude in online poker games. It also involved real-time assistance (RTA) and ghosting.

Zamani says that the group cheated others out of potentially millions of dollars. The whole operation worked like a cult, where members were told to do what Brynn told them, which included eating a Vegan diet, playing only specific tournaments, and participating in shamanic rituals that involved frog poison.

Kenney denied the accusations and said that was one of the craziest things he had ever heard.

Kenney became a GGPoker ambassador in 2018, but he said he had been with the site since its inception in 2017. in 2020, he switched from ambassador to consultant and helped grow the site.
