RecPoker | Episode 423 – Maanit Madan

By Jim Reid
October 22, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel interview Maanit Madan from rfpoker.com who shares some context around possible technical/security weaknesses in the streaming world that have been mentioned in the conversations around The Hand that we’ve all been hearing about for the last few weeks, and some of the technical factors that go into tracking and streaming technology on today’s tables. Maanit recaps some current events and gets right into the technical difficulties of securely streaming private card info in real time, then the gang talks a little about the future of streaming poker, and of playing on ‘closed box’ systems like the ones at rfpoker.com that can collect and share a lot of the information that poker fans want to follow along with – and not have to worry about who’s watching in real time. Good news for the future of livestream poker – and more!
