Man I love Bryn Kenney. He is one of the best tournament poker players in the world, but also very old school degenerate as well. While everyone out there is worried about bankroll management and those nitty things, he has no problem putting half of his net worth on the line in a £1 Million tournament. Most poker players probably had 10% or less of themselves in that tournament, Bryn had the majority of himself, and then took 2nd place for 20 million dollars. He legit used the reasoning of “having a feeling” for putting that amount of money up. What a legend. Is he smart with his money? Probably not. He’s gone from having ~$1 million to being “broke broke” 4 or 5 times, as he discusses in this interview:
Bryn now sits at number 1 in pretty much every category
thanks to his 8 separate million dollar scores he’s had since just 2016.
Not too shabby if you ask me.
Bless Bryn Kenney, and may he never go broke again. Or not, whatever. He’ll just win a million buck all over again. Hopefully we can get him on the Cracking Aces Podcast soon, would love to talk to him for an hour about his outlook on life and money and everything in between.
