RecPoker | Episode 441 – Sammie G

By Jim Reid
December 23, 2022

*Explicit language is present in this episode* This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew panel interview Sammie G about her recent ascent in the poker world! Sammie talks about her dad’s role in her poker story and the role that her love of math has played in her life both on and off the felt. She also tells us what it has been like climbing the tournament ladder from charity tourneys to WSOP events, working with our awesome friends at Rungood, and her perspective as a younger woman in the poker world. Finally, she discusses the value of community, life in Florida, and a lot more!

Plus of course we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us on YouTube every Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too! (but not Dec 26th 2022, there is no show that night…but don’t tell Phil!)
