RecPoker | Episode 451 – Jon Pardy

January 30, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview popular poker streamer Jon Pardy! After muddling through the usual audio cue issues (lol) the Crew gets right into discussing Jon’s past as a winner of Big Brother and how that led to his start in poker. We also discuss the kinds of games he likes to play, some mistakes he sees players make in those games, and how to make poker more FUN! Finally, Jon shares some details about his life since Big Brother and offers some tips for players looking to get started on their own streaming journey.

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