Rob is a regular high stakes poker player in some of the biggest games around the world - I did commentary on his week for Poker After Dark in December that had JRB and Rick Solomon playing. It was wild. He is also one of the powers that be over at Party Poker and doing his part to try to provide a great place for poker players around the world to play.
