Robert Kuhn: Early Life

Since the age of 12, he has cultivated a fervent passion for poker, initially enjoying friendly games with peers. This interest seamlessly transitioned into the realm of online play. Despite encountering some initial setbacks and experiencing a series of 106 deposits on Full Tilt, it was during his second year of college that he truly excelled in the world of poker.

Proposing an idea to his mother, he suggested quitting school. However, she laid down a challenge: if he could amass $50,000 in a single semester and sustain a quarterly income of $20,000, she would support his decision. Luckily, he won the bet that week by securing a cash in the Wednesday 320 on PokerStars, with an impressive $55,000. Shortly thereafter, he continued his earning streak, opting to participate in the Nightly 162 and earned a substantial $20,000.

In an effort to adapt to his poker destiny, he made a decision to relocate to Mexico. Little did he know that this shift would mark a crucial chapter in his poker journey, presenting both challenges and opportunities.
