A unique poker pairing will combine popular American streamer Ebony Kenney and Phil Nagy, a poker industry executive, in the peculiar big shot event, the Coin Rivet Invitational during Triton Poker Series Cyprus. According to a press release announcing the event, the $200,000 buy-in single-entry Coin Rivet Invitational, which is inspired by the Triton Million played in London in 2019, would have high-profile corporate executives and poker pros competing.
Like the 2019 edition in London, the professionals and amateurs will play individually on Day 1 before competing against one another during the three-day event.
The latest World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion Espen Jorstad and British club owner Rob Yong are just a few of the pairings for the 80-player limit event that have already been revealed. Other duos involve Paul Phua and Poker Hall of Famer Phil Ivey, Paul Newey and high stakes crushing legend Steve O’Dwyer, and Seth Davies and business tycoon Eric Worre.
On August 24, Triton Poker revealed that Nagy had extended an invitation to Kenney to play a part in the game, which would occur during the first-ever Luxon Pay Mediterranean Poker Party, which is presently taking place.
After the Championship Series, Kenney told PokerNews that Nagy contacted her while she was en route to Joshua Tree. He told her that she would be participating in the Triton event and that it would be happening.
Kenney, a seasoned poker professional with $412,796 in live Hendon Mob profits, may change his life due to the invitation to the coveted High Roller event.
As per the poker news, Kenney expressed her appreciation for Nagy’s decision to give someone a shot which, in his opinion, wouldn’t have otherwise had this opportunity.
The Twitch streamer’s greatest buy-in is the $10,000 WSOP Main Event, which is only a small portion of the money she will put up in Cyprus. The $200,000 buy-in tournament is a significant increase in stakes for her.
Kenney chuckled when questioned if this would have the highest buy-in of her life.
Sosia Jiang, an entrepreneur, will join Kenney at the poker table. Kenney is the only female poker professional invited to the tournament thus far. Kenney stated that she has been extremely open about my support for women in poker and how important representation is, and that she does not take her position as the only female professional in the competition casually.
To win, Kenney will have to beat a select group of talented competitors, including Jason Koon, Ben Lamb, Laszlo Bujtas, Stephen Chidwick, and others.
Nagy will also have a difficult task ahead of him. The high-stakes businesspeople Bobby Baldwin, Tony G, and Wai Kin Yong, each with thousands in total earnings, will compete against the poker CEO from Costa Rica with $31,720 in live income.
