RecPoker | Episode 327 – Chris Jones

By Steve Fredlund
November 22, 2021

This week rec.poker Premium Member Greg “MaxChaos” Clem joins the show to interview the one and only Chris “FiveByFive” Jones, who is the Membership Content Director at rec.poker and has been on a bit of a heater recently! Greg talks to Chris about his history in poker, how to study, what brought him to RecPoker and how his work in the world of literature has made him a better poker player. Plus we get to enjoy the fabled “O Canada” performance from Steve that we’ve all been waiting for!

Chris is active on Twitter as @FiveBFive

RecPoker is a vibrant and encouraging poker learning community. We are committed to learning the game, but our priority is building healthy relationships where we can not only grow in the game, but grow in our enjoyment of life. The membership website at rec. poker is awesome, but it’s just a tool to help us build that community. You can join for FREE, giving you access to the groups, forums, and other member benefits.
