In 2018, online poker sponsorships for American poker pros are a rarity. Those who have followed Bryn Kenney‘s career know he has a habit of trusting his instincts and sometimes doing things in an unconventional way. So it should come as no surprise that Kenney has landed himself a sponsorship contract.
Kenney will be the face of GGPoker.com, a non-US online poker site that has roots in Asia but services players in Canada, Europe, and South America.
” I’m really happy to become part of the GGPoker team,” said Kenney. ” They are the western face of Asia’s largest poker network, with lots of opportunities for growth, and it’s great to be in a position to both represent the brand and to positively influence the further development of GGPoker.”
Kenney, who has over $21.1 million in lifetime live earnings, will be adorned with a GGPoker patch at all live events but will be more than just a patch-wearing ambassador. Kenney will help GGPoker as they continue to develop their product and expand their audience.
” Bryn is a one-of-a-kind poker player, a massive winner who plays using gut instincts as much as anything else, and we’re just thrilled to welcome him to Team GGPoker,” said Paul Burke, Head of GGPoker. ” In addition to representing the GGPoker brand worldwide and helping us reach out to those who not played at our tables, Bryn is going to help us further improve the GGPoker experience, ensuring that our players both new and old have something very special to look forward to.”
Kenney is the 2017 Global Poker Index American Player of the Year and currently sits #10 on the GPI. In 2017 he won the PokerStars Championship Monte Carlo Super High Roller for $1.9 million – the largest score of his career.
