RecPoker | Episode 457 – Brendon Rubie

By Jim Reid
February 20, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview poker pro and coach Brendon Rubie from his podcast “The Australian Poker Mindset”. Brendon was already a very accomplished player when he decided to start coaching several years ago, and he shares some fun stories about his playing days and how they have informed his work as a coach and podcaster. Brendan shares some great advice for recreational poker players, from how to approach different kinds of tournaments fields, to the pain and value of coming in second place, to a great take on bankroll management, 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 next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real time, and you can win too!
