About Gamblista

Gamblista.com was setup as a complete guide to gambling for the discerning gambler by 4kingpoker.com owner Rob Lacey also known as “scrawnybob” on some poker forums and sites – a British recreational poker player, webmaster, blogger and professional photographer.

I enjoy a bit of gamble and I’m passionate about poker both live and online – sometimes I’ve even been known to win. I have had minor success live with an 11th place cash in the Grosvenor GUKPT Walsall 2011, 63rd place cash in the UKIPT Brighton 2011 and winning the Affiliate Series of Poker (ASOP) in the same year.

I have cashed in a few minor online MTT’s including the biggest field I’ve played in the 2012 PokerStars Micro Millions main event finishing 7536th against 61,000 players but I mostly flit around playing multi-table SNG’s, low stakes cash games and tournaments.

Previously I have setup and run 4kingpoker / 4kingbet which was originally established in 2005 as a poker forum and is now in the process of evolving into Gamblista.com which I hope to will be a broader gambling lifestyle site and a valuable resource for all gamblers across all different types of gambling including poker.

Cheers and good luck at the tables – Rob “Scrawnybob” Lacey aka Gamblista
