RecPoker | Episode 405 – The WSOP experience

By Jim Reid
August 22, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel don’t interview anyone at all – instead they review some elements of this year’s World Series of Poker, and go over a hand Jim played on Day 1 where flopping the nuts has a tinge of anxiety attached. They talk about 3-bet and 4-bet dynamics, hand rages, tournament structures, blind vs blind play, and more!

We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
How to help us out – https://rec.poker/support/
Home Games – https://rec.poker/homegame/
Go Premium! – https://rec.poker/premium/
