Robert Bellande is an aggressive cash game player who is
recognized at the tables for his vocal abilities during the game.
Although he is known as a pro player, many will remember him from
Survivor: China where he finished in 8th place.
In 2005 he finished an impressive 3rd place in the
World Series of Poker Circuit Event cashing $219,
900 and less than a week later he won the 2005 Winnin
‘o’ the Green tournament. Although his wins were a
big success for him, it was his canny comments at
the table that put him in the spotlight.
In early 2008 it was announced that Bellande was
joining the Team Ignition and would be representing Ignition
Life Poker in the 2008 WSOP. During the event
he placed second in the $1,500 Limit Holdem Event
and 442 out of 6844 players in the Main Event. His
total tournament wins as of 2008 total $1,000,000.
Bellande is an active player on Ignition Life, and is
often found playing in the weekly team leaderboard
heads up tournaments where an online player gets the
chance to play the pros heads up. Other members of
Team Ignition Poker include; David
Bonomo and Evelygn Ng
