RecPoker | Ep 315 – Ryan Laplante

By Steve Fredlund
October 07, 2021

Ryan Laplante is a WSOP bracelet winner, poker coach and founder of Learn Pro Poker. One of the most respected people in poker, Ryan is constantly looking for ways to improve his own game while making his top-notch training accessible to the less experienced player. Ryan has partnered with K.L. Cleeton and Range Trainer Pro to create a powerful solver that does both pre-flop and post-flop solves, which is a herculean effort.

Ryan is active on Twitter as @protentialMN

The RecPoker panel also welcomed Brian Raben who won the RecPoker VIP Tournament held on ClubWPT, earning him a $2,500 seat in an upcoming WPTDeepStacks event at Thunder Valley. Brian shares a bit about his experience playing the tournament.

The panel also chats about their ClubWPT experience, the results of the home games, and many other community happenings including:

  • WSOP Vegas Road Trip – https://rec.poker/roadtrips/
  • RecPoker Staking -https://rec.poker/staking/
