RecPoker | Episode 475 – Xuan Liu

By Jim Reid
April 24, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew are “throwing back” to an interview between our own Kim “PetVet” Kilroy and Xuan Liu, the popular poker pro and Poker Power instructor. Look for more of these interviews from Kim over the next several months as we continue our emphasis on making the poker table a more comfortable place for all to enjoy. While this interview was recorded a while ago, the material remains relevant in 2023 – Xuan talks about her own start in the poker world, inclusion at the table, private games, ladies events, lessons she has learned along the way, and a lot more! 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!

Xuan is active on Twitter @xxl23
