By Jim Reid
March 06, 2023

This week the Australian Invasion continues as Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Steve Davy from the Australian Poker League! Steve shares some details about how he got started with the league, and how it prioritizes the fun of the game we all love. They discuss the legality of various kinds of poker in Australia, and the value of having a community of poker friends. Steve shares some stories from his years in the game, and we meet some fun new folks in the YouTube chat who also know a few of Steve’s stories! 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!
