RecPoker | Episode 443 – Nick Howard

By Jim Reid
December 31, 2022

To wrap up the year, Jim Reid and RecPoker RECing Crew member Joe Kulas interview Nick Howard from Poker Detox! They talk about Nick’s poker journey, the obstacles that most recreational players face, the science of data-analysis, the intersection of physics and psychology, some mistakes recreational players make both on and off the felt – and Nick even shares a discount code listeners can use to get involved in his coaching for profit program in 2023, starting with a 30-day course beginning on January 7th that brings players along a daily series of steps they can take to prepare themselves for success in their own poker games!
