Meet the Very Successful RPM Poker Team Pros

Share this
Maybe you haven't heard of RPM Poker yet and if you haven't, be sure to read the in-depth review here on PokerWorks. But whether you know about RPM Poker or not, most of you have probably heard of most of the professional players on the RPM Poker Team. And even if you aren't familiar with some of these pros, you will surely be impressed by their amazing online poker accomplishments!

First up, is Aditya "INTERVENTION" Agarwal who is a Multi-Table Tournament (MTT) Specialist originally from Kolkatta, India who now resides in Prague, Czech Republic. Agarwal started playing poker at the age of 20 and since then, has amassed online poker career earnings of $1.5 million. Couple that with his live tournament cashes of $175k, and his total winnings for the last five years adds up to an impressive $1.65 million.

Another RPM pro who thinks of himself as a MTT Specialist is James "Mr_bigqueso" Collopy. This 20-year-old says he has been playing poker since the age of 14, then went on to become an Economics Major and Irish Studies Minor Sophomore at NYU before moving to Washington, DC. James’ online poker earnings today total $900,000 and his live poker tournament winnings add another $49,000 which makes for an impressive total of almost $950,000. Not bad for a young man yet to reach the age where he can legally be in most casinos.

Although his favorite tournaments are MTT's, 20-year-old Stephen "Stevie444" Chidwick of London, England has made his mark by playing in high-stakes Sit n Gos. Since starting his poker career at the young age of 17, his biggest cash online was in the FTOPS XII Event 17 where he pocketed $142k. In just three short years, Stephen has racked up a total of $1 million playing online poker and another $150,000 playing live. Showing his humorous side, Stephen says his favorite hobby is, ‘speaking Spanish to animals’ and the person he would most like to play heads-up is ‘Clifford the big red dog.’

Mark "Dipthrong" Herm is also another MTT Specialist who splits his time between Wayne, PA and Ocean City, NJ. Although this 23-year-old has racked up an impressive $1 million playing online poker since he discovered the game at the age of 17, he cites his biggest accomplishment as when he beat Mark Seif heads up for $12k on a tournament leaderboard event. Mark cites his favorite game as Beer Pong and favorite hobbies as fishing, drinking, and poker. When asked where he sees himself in five years his reply is simply “retired’ and at the rate he is going, he will probably make it.

Yet another big fan of the MTT's is Anthony "Holdplz" Spinella, a 20-year-old who spends his time in Waxhaw, NC and Plattsburgh, NY. Anthony also hopes to be a retired pro in five years and is well on his way to achieving that goal with his $1.3 million online poker winnings. In the short years since he started playing poker at the age of 19, he has also won $99k playing in live events, making his career total a combined $1.4 million.

Former law school student Jeff "Jpapola" Papola is another MTT player whose biggest win so far include; taking third in the 2008 Aruba Poker Classic for $250k, winning first place 1st in a $1k Monday event for $107k and coming in second 2nd in the 2005 WCOOP Event 10 paid him $122k. Add that to his online poker winnings of $900,000 and this 23-year-old who resides in New York has racked up $1.28 million in just five short years of playing poker. Jeff says his ‘I made it moment’ was coming in third in Aruba and the person he would most like to play heads-up is the grandfather of poker himself, Doyle Brunson. His five-year goal is to be successful in all of his business ventures and if he is as good at business decisions as he is playing in tournaments, he should have no problem reaching his goal.

Finally there is Steven “Zugwat” Silverman, one of the internet’s biggest cash game winners. RPM poker has chosen Stephen for their ‘Train With Zugwat’ leader board promotion. After winning against some of the biggest names in poker at the cash tables, he will now be offering one on one coaching to a few lucky winners at RPM Poker. The top two point earners for the month on the leaderboard will battle it out in a best of three heads-up poker tournaments for the right to be mentored by Steven. The winner will then get to pick the brain of this 20-year-old who started playing poker when he was just 15 years old. In his short poker career, he has already banked $900,000 by playing online poker and another $200k playing in live tournaments.

All in all there are 18 new young guns of poker in the RPM Poker stable of pros. They are all actively available to inspire you to greater heights by offering coaching and advice.
