Who is Rob Kuhn?

Kuhn's poker career began at the age of 12. Back then, he played $5 tournaments in the basement with friends. Online, the player faced great difficulties and made more than a hundred deposits before he started playing on the green side.

In college, Kuhn went on a bet with his own mother. According to the deal, he can drop out of college and become a professional player if he wins $50k in 3 months. Robert was able to fulfill the condition in just one tournament. The biggest achievement across the Internet is a WSOP Online bracelet in a $400 tournament in 2020. Kuhn won $115,850.

At live tournaments, the player earned more than $700k. He holds a WSOP Circuit ring, which was obtained in the Main Tournament of the series in Atlantic City in 2016, along with the best cash of $ 122,098
