Rob “robtinnion” Tinnion joined Pocarr in late 2012 as a backee for $11 freezeouts on Pokerstars. He quickly showed he would be one of Pocarr’s hardest workers and had instant success. As he continued to work hard and results came, his stakes increased to the point he was playing on all major sites and up to $215 freezeouts. Not easily satisfied, Rob continued to outwork his peers and in 2014 he chopped a SCOOP and won the Sunday Million outright for nearly $300k combined. Shortly after he won an EPT side in London for $42k. In early 2015 Rob won the Sunday Million outright AGAIN for another $200k (wtf, we know!). He has 2 triple crowns and over 1.5 million in lifetime earnings. Rob has a degree from Oxford-Brooks University in motorsport technology.

Michael “M_Acevedo” Acevedo began playing $13.50 freezeouts for Pocarr in June 2014 with only one goal in his mind–become the best poker player he could possibly be rather than “making the most money”. With that mindset he quickly outworked everyone, watched videos, read articles and books, learned how to use all the poker tools and software to a high proficiency, started streaming for P5’s TV and then became a P5’s coach. His mathematical background and work ethic have helped him master the theoretical aspects of the game and got him working with some of the brightest minds in poker. Having great results both live and online, he has proven the sky is the limit for those willing to put in the work.

Richard "ChipsFool" Hoadley joined Pocarr in September 2014 as an already successful low stakes grinder, looking to improve his game and move up the stakes, both of which he has achieved.
With over $1million in winnings, his consistent results and volume earned him a role as a "Peer Coach" in early 2016 and due to excellent feedback from many of our backees, he has now been rewarded as a "Main Coach".
When he isn't eating, sleeping and breathing poker, Richard can be found dabbling in the kitchen as he has a real love for food and drink. You can follow his instagram @ediblepilch for amazing food and drink pictures (try not to salivate).
