Andrew Robl accuses Martin Kabrhel of marking cards

Andrew Robl and other poker pros have accused Martin Kabrhel of marking cards. Kabrhel has just finished 3rd in the $250,000 Super High Roller at the 2023 WSOP for $2,279,038.

Michigan-born Robl spoke out against the 40-year-old Kings Casino reg after Kabrhel reached the final table of the $250,000 buy-in Super High Roller at the ongoing World Series of Poker.

Daniel Negreanu ranked Martin Kabrhel as worst company at the poker table last year.

He fired off two very expensive bullets and mixed a big mouth and big hands en route to a final table spot, disposing of Phil Ivey to bust the money bubble and bluffing his way past other giants of the game…

However, Robl was unimpressed by Robl’s behaviour, stating: “If I knew he was going to be in any tournament I’d rather not play, imagine how recreational players must feel.”

He also added a pic of Kabrhel staring at his opponent’s card, and added the title: “Reading his card markings or is he just using his X-Ray vision superpower?”

When quizzed as to why he chose to out Kabrhel after rather than before the $250k SHR, Robl insisted: “Not a new take, most pros have felt this way for years.

He added: “Every player in the tournament cringed when he entered, if there was a player vote from the high roller field if he should be banned it would likely be unanimous and poker players can’t agree on everything.”

He was far from alone in singling out Kabrhel as being one of poker’s worst…

Texan pro Kyle Cartwright tweeted: “I played with him one time and it was awful. One of the worst player experiences I’ve ever encountered.”

English highroller, Paul Newey, was of a different opinion, sharing: “Personally I find it very enjoyable sitting with him in a tournament. Card marking allegations I had not heard of previously.”

As some pointed out, it is unlikely the WSOP would ban Kabrhel for unsubstantiated allegations of card marking, given that they haven’t banned confirmed online cheats Jake Schindler and Ali Imsirovic.

Andrew Robl and Dan Smith’s accusations, though, will likely have players, fans and officials watching the Czech pro a bit closer than usual as he battles it out for WSOP gold and the $5,293,556 top prize…
