CoinPoker is proud to present the next CoinPoker ambassador, Robert Campbell, WSOP Player of the Year 2019. Robert will be representing the brand at live events he attends around the world.
Who is Rob Campbell?
Robert or Rob as he prefers lives in Melbourne, Australia. He made a name for himself in poker during 2019 after winning not one but two bracelets at the World Series of Poker. The first came in event #33, a $1,500 Limit 2-7 Lowball Triple Draw event earning him $144,027. The second bracelet came just over two weeks later when he won the $10,000 Seven Card Stud Hi-Lo 8 or better, event #67, netting him $385,763 in prize money.
It wasn’t the two bracelets that caused a media stir, but instead, the controversy regarding WSOP Player of the Year. Daniel Negreanu had been announced as the winner of the WSOP POY race when officials noted a mistake had been made regarding payouts in an event. Removing this from Daniels points total, resulted in him losing the top spot to Rob. A well-deserved win given his results that year.

2 – Shaun Deeb – 3,917.32

Rob’s love for card games started at a very young age, playing with his grandmother. During his teenage years, he discovered other games and the interest grew more and more. By the time he was 18, he visited the Crown Casino in Melbourne, something that would turn out to be an expensive but invaluable lesson in the end.
Rob has thus far during his poker career $1,371,898 in live events earnings.
Representing CoinPoker in poker and esports
Besides poker, Rob owns and runs his own esports team called Neon Esports and they, together with Rob, will be promoting the CoinPoker brand at events and competitions they attend.
The transition between esports and poker isn’t anything new having seen Bertrand “ElkY” Grospellier, Doug Polk, Lex Veldhuis, and Randy Lew take the step into poker after a successful esports career.
New bounty target
