Americas Cardroom Team Pro Ebony Kenney Puts Women Poker Players in the Spotlight at Coin Rivet Invitational

Published

on

San Jose, Costa Rica–(Newsfile Corp. – October 3, 2022) – Ebony Kenney, a Team Pro at online poker site Americas Cardroom, finished in 5th place in the Coin Rivet Invitational and won $1.7 Million. A few days earlier, she finished in 5th place in a separate Triton Poker Series event, winning over $240,000.

The Coin Rivet Invitational tourney took place from September 10th-12th. The No Limit Holdem, single re-entry tournament had a $200,000 buy-in, making it one of the most exclusive events in the world for both poker professionals and wealthy recreational players. There were 90 initial entrants, however the prize pool soared to a total of $23 Million after re-entries.

The unique format of this event allowed recreational players (typically businessmen) to invite a pro to play in the other half of the field. The two sides then merged on Day 2 and played to the conclusion of the tourney. Kenney was invited by Americas Cardroom CEO Phil Nagy, going against the norm of this predominately male dominated contest.

The $1.7 Million won by Kenney was easily the biggest of her career and she also made history by becoming the first woman to final table in her inaugural Triton tournament. And while winning that kind of money certainly changes her life, it’s her legacy in the game and representing women in general, that means the most to her.

“Before coming to Cyprus, the biggest buy-in I had played in was just $10,000, so there was obviously a lot more on the line,” Kenney said. “I would like to give a special thanks to Phil Nagy for inviting me to play in the tourney, and my one big hope is that other women get to experience these same kinds of thrills.”

COTI V2 is revolutionizing blockchain technology with private play through encrypted circuits, offering enhanced speed and efficiency. Currently, the Genesis builder network is live, and the company is inviting developers to join their program. The network supports private play upgrades for Ethereum.

As a privacy-focused Ethereum layer 2 solution, COTI V2 employs advanced encryption technology and encrypted circuits, enabling operations on all devices without compromising personal data.

The primary goal of COTI V2, as outlined in its whitepaper, is to address private play issues on blockchains. Developers can protect privacy through encrypted circuits. The COTI V2 Devnet provides a user-friendly, connectible EVM space (gcEVM) using the Solidity programming language.

Additionally, the COTI V2 network offers developers tools for privacy play with TypeScript and Python SDKs, along with EVM RPC, documentation, a faucet, an explorer, and Hardhat.

COTI has received positive feedback from Civic, a provider of Web3 identification toolkits.

The COTI Foundation plans to launch a privacy-focused growth fund, the ABC Growth Fund, allocating 400 million COTI tokens to provide real-time privacy services.

Developers using the COTI V2 builder network can explore use cases such as confidential DeFi, private payment transactions, stablecoins and RWAs, on-chain data control, confidential AI and machine learning, and decentralized identity recognition.

According to COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffen, the COTI V2 builder and developer program is now available to the public, inviting developers to join the network.
