- Ebon Kenney is hosting a poker coaching session bi-weekly on Zoom
- It is open to all women who love poker and want to develop their confidence
- Kenney won almost $2 million in the 2022 Triton Poker Super High Roller Series Cyprus
Ebony Kenney closed out 2022 with $2 million in live cashes, nearly all of that coming from her amazing performance at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Cyprus in September.
The American poker pro aims to build on that success as she prepares for the upcoming World Series of Poker (WSOP) live festival in Las Vegas.
Apart from this, Kenney has one more goal this year – to empower her fellow female players, and help them succeed in the game and overcome life’s challenges.
Giving Back to the Female Poker Community
Kenney entered two tournaments at the Triton Poker Super High Roller Series in Cyprus without spending that much, mainly thanks to Americas Cardroom (ACR) CEO Phil Nagy who sponsored her Cyprus trip.
Nagy invited Kenny to the $200,000 buy-in Coin Rivet Invitational which was the biggest poker tournament of her career. She ended up finishing fifth for a massive $1.7 million beating out a field of elite players, including Erik Seidel, Stephen Chidwick, Michael Addamo, Jason Koon and Phil Ivey. Not only that – she also won $240,500 good for 5th place in a $25K No-Limit Hold’em event at the same series.
Kenney, who joined ACR as an ambassador in late 2020, couldn’t be more grateful that she was given that big opportunity to make a name for herself as a poker pro, and now she wants to pay it forward by hosting a coaching series exclusively for women.
“Embodied Confidence” is a free coaching series held bi-weekly via Zoom. It kicked off on March 29 and will continue through the start of the 2023 WSOP Main Event in July.
High Hopes for Women at 2023 WSOP Main Event
Embodied Confidence, which focuses on developing confidence on and off the felt, has attracted a decent number of participants so far and Kenney is enjoying every bit of it. The coaching session will help prepare women for their future poker endeavors, especially those who are planning to take a shot at the key tournaments during this summer’s WSOP, including the $10K Main Event.
Kenney is excited to compete in the tournament and is aiming to reach the final table. But she also wants other female players to finish strong, make it to the final table, or win the whole thing. She remains hopeful it happens this year.
