RecPoker | Episode 499 – Joseph and Toni

By Jim Reid
July 17, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Joseph and Toni from The Poker Oasis in Las Vegas! They run a fantastic home game and they take very seriously the cause of FUN in poker. They are great at making newcomers feel welcome. The group talks about their beginnings in poker, moving to Las Vegas and getting started, helping others to learn the game, some great friends they’ve made along the way, and more! Plus we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us LIVE on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!
