This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Elizabeth Bennett-Martin about her recent win at the Irish Poker Open as well as some other recent impressive results. Elizabeth talks about her experiences traveling around the world with her friends playing poker, some tips she has learned along the way, how her life as a lawyer/mediator has impacted her poker career, and reveals one HUGE tell that she finds reliable among most poker players. Elizabeth also shares some details about her charity, CLEW, that helps Cambodian women to explore an education in the legal field. 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!
