Congrats go out to one of the most popular poker players, Ebony Kenney, for her huge cashout Tuesday.


The Americas Cardroom pro and ambassador walked away with $1.7 Million in the Coin Rivet Invitational Poker Tournament and becomes one of the winningest women in poker.

Amazingly, she was not even the winner.  Kenney finished an impressive 5th place the super rich Cyprus tourney.

This represented the ACR pro's biggest career cash and 5th largest ever for a woman poker player.  Kenney now ranks 16th position in the Women's All Time Money List.

One of the few women in the tournament and the only woman at the final table, Kenney eliminated well-known poker personalities including Antanas “Tony G” Guoga to take her place at star-studded nine handed final table, which included Seth Davies, Fedor Holz, Sam Grafton, Karl Chappe-Gatien, Tom Vogelsang, Elias Talvitie, Aleksejs Ponakovs and Linus Loeliger. Grafton was ultimately declared the winner.

Americas Cardroom CEO Phil Nagy provided Ms. Kenney an invitation to enter the tournament.  Nagy also participated but unfortunately was eliminated early on.

“I am so grateful to Phil Nagy for giving me this opportunity,” Kenney said. “He believed in me in a spot when almost no one else did. I still can’t believe it and I will be soaking this one in for a long time, and it still hasn’t fully hit me.”

The Coin Rivet Invitational took place from September 10-12 at the Triton Super High Roller Series at Merit Royal Diamond, North Cyprus. The event was a $200,000 NLH single re-entry with each pro paired along side a recreational player.  The one caveat being that said recreational player must also be wealthy.

Each player paid the entry and the tournament had 90 entries. On day one, the professional players and recreational players were separated before the fields were merged on day two.

An amazing accomplishment for Ebony Kenney.
