Bryn Kenney isn’t your average high roller – he dresses like a rapper on vacation, his bankroll is constantly in flux and he doesn’t particularly care for Las Vegas. Kenney earned $13.6 million in his career to this point and 40% all came via the payout desk at the Atlantis Resort.

Anomalies occasionally happen in a game ruled by math but having nearly half your career earnings stemming from 12-day festival in January the past six years seem impossible. “It’s just been my place, maybe it’s where my lucky star is,” Kenney said. “In Las Vegas I’ve had the complete opposite luck and lost there for ten years straight. Here, I can’t find a losing trip.”

“It could be that I always take two weeks off right before Christmas and feel great coming back,” he added. “I’m always ready to play here as opposed to just playing and playing nonstop.”

During the inaugural PokerStars Championship Bahamas Kenney cashed six times, won two high roller events, cashed in his fourth $100,000 Super High Roller and earned $1.7 million.

“I would say I’ve been at my top focus, on top of my game and sleeping well,” said Kenney. “I’m confident and happy – even when times are bad. I’m unaffected by bankroll swings in terms of my mood swings.”

“Trying to keep level, doing a good job and getting through bad runs and getting into good runs,” he continued. “The bankroll swings by far harder. I don’t really have too many mood swings, but the bankroll is like a mountain – up and down, up and down.”

Kenney believes a player’s mindset is most important when at the nosebleed stakes. “The bigger money means bigger pressure and it gets to people,” Kenney said. “It’s all about finding your own balance and being calm and comfortable in whatever situation you’re in.”

“If you’re going to be like me and swing around and gamble a lot, you have to be comfortable when losing all your money just like when your ballooning your own money from nothing.”
