RecPoker | Episode 358 – Kyna England

By Steve Fredlund
March 15, 2022

Kyna England was one of the first players to join Poker Power, which is a phenomenal organization that is spreading the love of poker to women around the world. In 2021 she won the MSPT Player of the Year award with an impressive tournament run. We talk about that experience and what life has been like since. We also discuss how to study, tips for beginner players, how Kyna plans her tournament schedule, and all about the “Kyna Cool Song.” To all you England family members out there: yes, please send us a video of you singing that song!

Kyna is active on Twitter as @kyna_cool

We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
