In the week that highstakes poker exploded with accusations and counterattacks surrounding everything from RTA use to ghosting to multi-accounting, Bryn Kenney was accused of all three by a former “horse”, Martin Zamani.
His former horse Martin Zamani outed Bryn Kenney on Twitter
Hie former horst Martin Zamani outed Bry Kenney on Twitter, claiming:
“There’s so many instances of him just straight … abusing his horses and no one has said anything because they say Bryn has too much power. Well fuck it all. I have nothing to lose.”
He accused the New Yorker of multiple counts of cheating and forcing others to cheat and do degrading acts under threat of being dropped from his stable.
Since we are in the midst of calling out cheaters @BrynKenney and all his horses are basically forced to collude on GG esp in satties. “ do what’s best for the team” he wouldn’t let me play GG 5k plo events on my account but on party I could play 10Ks if said horse ghost was.

With his tweets going viral, Doug Polk stepped in to question Zamani in more detail, intrigued not only by the purely poker aspects but by claims that Kenney sent Zamani to a shaman, who tried to force frog poison and LSD into his bloodstream.
It appears that Kenney has previous for threatening legal action against those who have tried to out him for similar behaviour to that alleged by Zamani, with poker commentator henry Kilbane given the same treatment last year…

Polk’s interview with Zamani went into depth on the allegations, one of which was that he screwed over Lauren Roberts, even as he partied with her and pretended to be a friend.
He22 was one of bigger losers. But 5ks and 10ks running 24/7. Here’s some adderall my good friend keep grinding you’ll get it back. Shockingly enough they aren’t around anymore. Only took $2M to realize Bryn was poaching them for his horses. Friends like that who needs enemies!

Zamani revealed to Polk that the “He22” account belonged to Roberts, leading Roberts herself to take to twitter to describe Kenney as “abusive” and “pathological”.
Lauren Roberts shared multiple screenshots of messages purporting to show Kenney asking to be repaid the $2.2million of his money he claims she lost on GGPoker.

“People aren’t upset with you. They just want to know the truth on these Bryn Kenny allegations”
Lauren Roberts revealed:
“The texts I shared were a recent argument with Bryn telling me I owe him money and me asking for an accounting. Notice how the number keeps changing, he wrote it in the book but then there was no book, he tracks 1000 ppl, no spreadsheet, never wrong…Then he gets abusive, it’s pathological.”
Lauren the vast majority of people are on your side they just want to hear what you have to say. People aren’t upset with you. They just want to know the truth on these Bryn Kenny allegations. https://t.co/bKNZgh6EP0

“There is zero evidence of this and everyone who knows me knows it is not true”
Bryn Kenney took to Twitter to refute the allegations made against him, promising to reveal further details soon…
Dear all of my friends and fans, there have been accusations made about me, the most important to me is me being involved in any type of cheating. There is zero evidence of this and everyone who knows me knows it is not true. I will be addressing this in more details shortly.❤️

In the meantime, there has still been no closure to the accusations made by Alex Foxen against Ali Imsirovic, nor those by Justin Bonomo against Imsirovic and a player believed to be Jake Schindler, accusing them of using RTA (Real-Time Assistance) on GGPoker.
Bonomo claims he lost more than $1million in the games involving players apparently banned from GGPoker for RTA use, while Kristen Bicknell Foxen has claimed she and husband Alex lost $1.5million.
Well @GGPoker this is madness. Between me and @WAFoxen, we lost $1.5 million in all of these games. I think we’ve received under $15k in refunds.
Hearing the extent of the cheating makes me sick.
