“Bryn Kenney has threatened me with legal action by his attorneys”

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.

Bryn Kenney Accused of Cheating and Abuse by Martin Zamani

“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.

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.

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.”

“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…

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.
