Zinno earned a degree in chemical engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, then graduated from Suffolk University Law School in Boston and passed the Massachusetts state bar exam before becoming a professional poker player. In 2008 he cashed in the WSOP Main Event in 205th place, earning $38,600.

First, he won the Fallsview Poker Classic, then he won the L.A. Poker Classic for $1,015,860. His victory at the LAPC was his third WPT championship, tying Gus Hansen and Carlos Mortensen for the record.[3] With these two victories and multiple cashes, Zinno was awarded the WPT Player of the Year for Season 13.

At the 2015 WSOP, Zinno cashed five times and made the final table each time.
