By Jim Reid
September 23, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel interview Dan Ross from PokerLiveUpdates.com about championing recreational poker players from around the world, and celebrating their successes. Dan and his crew are actively involved in reporting poker tours and results for not just the biggest tours around – but also the smaller ones that we seem to have the most fun at. Dan and the panel talk about the logistics of reporting, the highs and lows of covering poker, some of his own favorite rooms and tours, the importance of helping people in need, and a lot more!
