Although Kevin found poker way back in 2002 through some friends, it took him a couple of years to hone his skills enough to pursue it as a career. Since doing so, he has racked up more than $3.3 million from online tournament winnings and another $1,000,000+ from the live circuit.
Born and raised in Ohio, the tournament specialist is better known on the virtual felt as ‘iacog4’ on PokerStars and formerly as ‘kice32’ on FullTilt. Iacofano has booked a collection of impressive results both before and after Black Friday. In 2009, he took down the WCOOP-08 Fixed Limit Hold’em $215 event which earned him $64,000. Not deterred by the legal changes to online poker in 2011, Kevin had a very successful 2012 thanks to the Sunday Million. In April, he finished runner-up in the $215 buy-in event for a huge $162,817. With experience and opportunity on his side, Kevin got another shot at a Sunday Million title in December of the same year. This time around, the American won the tournament and collected $215,524 for his largest ever poker score to date.
Now residing in Las Vegas, Kevin upped his volume on the live circuit following Black Friday (though he does often travel for big online events such as WCOOP and SCOOP). He is a five-time WSOP final-tablist with a penchant for mixed-games. The closest he came to touching the gold was in 2017 when he finished second in the $1,500 Dealers Choice 6-Handed event. He also was awarded a six-figure score for his third-place finish at the $3,000 H. O. R. S. E. event two years prior.
While the majority of Iacofano’s live volume has taken place on home soil, his two largest scores in this setting have both come overseas – each in 2011 on the EPT. In February, Kevin got down to the final table of the Copenhagen Main Event and earned $183,580 for his fourth-place finish. September of the same year saw the American catch another six-figure score when he finished sixth at the £5,000 EPT London Main Event after outlasting the likes of Brynn Kenney, Doyle Brunson and Mustapha Kanit.
Outside of poker, Kevin is a sports fanatic with a particular interest in leveraging data to make well-informed bets. He also has a blog which he updates from time to time – he gave his two cents on the state of online poker in the U. S. here.
