There is no way I take my foot off the gas until I make the #1 spot on the all-time money list.


  • Current all-time money list leader on The Hendon Mob with $65.1 million in live tournament winnings
  • Won the biggest-ever payout in poker history ($20.5m) in the 2019 Triton Million for Charity Event in London
  • Achieved eight other million-plus live ranking results
  • Only one WSOP bracelet win – in 2014 for $153,220


Hailing from Long Island, New York, Kenney was a professional MTG player before he made the move into poker. Swapping card games, Kenney immediately transitioned into poker with live success, winning at the East Coast Poker Championships in Verona.

Soon, Kenney was winning at even bigger live events. Cashing at the World Series of Poker in 2010, Kenney even made the money in the Main Event. It would take him four more years to win his first-ever WSOP bracelet, taking down the $1,500-entry 10-Game Mix Six Handed event, which earned him $153,220.

Big results in high rollers followed and Kenney cultivated a reputation for winning major live events, including the PokerStars Championship $50,000 buy-in High Roller event in The Bahamas for just under a million dollars. Seven-figure wins followed, an incredible eight of them in total, but it was Kenney’s second-place result (and deal-dictated highest prize) in the 2019 Triton Million for Charity Event in London event that grabbed headlies. Taking home just over $20,56 and having the vast majority of his action, Kenney sealed the biggest single payout in tournament poker history.

Since 2019, Kenney became embroiled in a battle for the top spot on The Hendon Mob with Justin Bonomo, with Kenney’s result in August 2023, at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in London elevating him to the summit. Kenney won the $250,000-entry Luxon Invitational for $6,860,000 and currently leads his rival.

With his position at the top of the All-Time Money List there to be shot at, Bryn Kenney will need to remain at the top of his game as he races to become the first player to reach $100 million in live poker winnings. With a ranking heads-up record of 22 wins to 18 defeats, he is the man to beat.
