Andrew Robl is an American poker player who got his start playing $0.25/$0.50 home games with friends in the mid-2000’s. As you can see from his bankroll swings on HighStakesDB, Robl has definitely graduated from micro stakes home games.
Of course, Andrew Robl can survive the swings a little better than other players since he’s also a successful live tournament player. Robl has over $1.49 million in tournament cashes, which includes a 2nd place finish in the WPT Five Diamond Classic ($549k), a 3rd place effort in the EPT High Roller event ($309,849), and a 3rd place finish in a 2008 WSOP $5k Limit/NLHE tournament ($144k).
In addition to his successful live and online poker career, Robl has also made headlines for appearing on High Stakes Poker Season 7; he started a short spat with Daniel “KidPoker” Negreanu and Tony G after they labeled him a ‘nit.’ More recently, Robl issued a $50k mixed martial arts challenge to any poker player or new fighter who can beat him in a cage match.
