RecPoker | Episode 337 – Nate Meyvis

By Steve Fredlund
December 29, 2021

Nate Meyvis is perhaps best known as the co-host of the Thinking Poker Podcast with Andrew Brokos and now Carlos Welch, but there is a lot more to Nate. He shares some of his facets with our audience in this wide-ranging interview that took place shortly after his leaving Thinking Poker as a host after 8 years of excellence on the airwaves. We get into the importance of institutional knowledge and training when it comes to elements of card security and the integrity of the game. Also, how Nate’s background in philosophy has informed his career in poker and software, what is next for Nate and his family, and a few tips for recreational players to take their game to the next level.

Nate is active on Twitter as @NateMeyvis

We also go over this week’s home game results at https://www.rec.poker/homegame
