The second episode of From Busto to Robusto came online recently. This installment documents Andrew ‘good2cu’ Robl’s journey from a high schooler in Michigan to a high stakes poker pro living a fast lifestyle in Las Vegas. 918 Films, the company that produces the From Busto to Robusto series, does a great job of capturing the unique lifestyles and life experiences that many young, successful online poker pros have.
The first episode of this show followed Greg ‘Captain Zeebo’ Lavery. Personally, I think the Robl episode is much more interesting. While a successful player, Lavery’s life is still pretty boring; he lives in Wisconsin with his girlfriend. As you’ll see in Robl’s episode, he lives a bit more on the edge. I got the chance to go up to Robl’s high rise condo one summer because my friend Justin Collins was staying with him for the weekend. Andrew was playing 3-4 tables of really high stakes games so I didn’t really say much to him other than, “hey what’s up? Good luck in your game.” But he has a pretty sweet place and a lifestyle full of women, and high stakes gambling that you’ll see featured in this documentary.
