This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Victoria and Dayanna from the women’s-only study group Pocket Queens. Victoria tells some stories about her recent career as a woman in the poker world, and Dayanna shares her experience in a Ladies-only event where a male player entered and won the tournament. The group discusses some problems and possible solutions in the poker world today, and we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat!
