Robbie Strazynski

Robbie founded Cardplayer Lifestyle in 2009.

Having quite literally learned how to play poker around the kitchen table as a child, “living a Cardplayer Lifestyle” is something that he’s always aspired to. After having worked as a copywriter and marketing professional in the online gaming industry for a number of years, Robbie transitioned to become self-employed in the poker media niche in March 2017.

Since then, he has traveled the world to cover marquee tournament festivals including the World Poker Tour, 888poker LIVE, Unibet Open, the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, European Poker Tour, Malta Poker Festival, PokerStars Players Championship (PSPC), the World Series of Poker and more.

Robbie translated Pulling The Trigger: The Autobiography of Poker Pro Eli Elezra (published January 2019) from Hebrew into English.

Robbie is also well-known in the poker industry as a podcast host. He currently hosts The Orbit (roundtable panel discussion video show) as well as the CardsChat Podcast. In the past he served as host for the Red Chip Poker Podcast (2019) and co-host of the Top Pair Home Game Poker Podcast (2014-2020).

For three summers, between 2017-2019, Robbie worked as part of the Poker PROductions team during the World Series of Poker Main Event, as part of (and, later, leader of) the bio team, which is tasked with collecting and processing information about players at the featured tables at delivering it to the commentary team.

Robbie is also the creator of the Poker Notes Live mobile app, has been a contributing writer for numerous other poker media sites, and consults for multiple companies in the poker industry. He’s a big fan of mixed games and continues to play regularly in two home poker game groups.
