RecPoker | Episode 429 – Ryan Laplante

November 11, 2022

This week Jim Reid and the panel welcome Ryan Laplante back to the show. Ryan is an accomplished professional poker player, and the founder of the excellent training site Learn Pro Poker. WARNING: this starts as an interview but quickly turns into a detailed coaching session,  with Ryan, going over the many factors we should consider when facing a 3-bet. Ryan shares his screen as he uses a solver to break down a hand with visual elements. While the audio version of the show will be illuminating to the audience, you might want to watch (or re-watch!) this one on YouTube to get the most out of the different aspects of the hand.  There is a lot to unpack here!

Plus of course we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us on YouTube next Monday at 7:30pm ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!

Ryan is active on Twitter as @protentialmn
