By Steve Fredlund
January 10, 2022

Taylor Maas is an actuary by day and a killer poker streamer by night. This week we are once again joined by resident core-team-interviewer Greg Clem to find out more about Taylor Maas and what makes him tick.

One of the original members of the RECing Crew, Taylor can be found every Thursday night on the twitch.tv/recpoker channel, and is a frequent panelist on the Forums edition of the podcast. We talk about his style of play, how to study and improve, the importance of a support network at home, and more.

Taylor is active on Twitter as @Taylor_Maas
