From an early age, Brynn has always been passionate about games, especially the more cerebral ones. He also dressed and acted differently from the other children, so he felt like an outsider. When he played cards, he had a photographic memory that was useful.
Playing Poker as a Professional
By the age of 12, Brynn was ranked #1 in the world for his age group in Magic. For those who don’t know, Magic is a strategic card game with a fantasy battle theme. While playing Magic, he met Justin Bonomo, Jose Barbero, and Tong Gregg, who all went on to become outstanding poker players.
Brynn decided to try his hand at poker because he wanted bigger prizes. He attended his first live cash tournament at the tender age of 23 in 2007, and that was the beginning. In 2007, Kenney participated in live and online tournaments, improving his skills and winning.
