RecPoker | Episode 509 – Maureen Bloechlinger

By Jim Reid
August 22, 2023

This week we are throwing back to another of Kim Kilroy’s interviews from her Poker Empowerment sessions! In this session we welcome Maureen Blöechlinger, poker player, former poker dealer, poker promoter, and RecPoker member based in Zurich Switzerland. We discuss her journey in poker and her work as an advocate for women in poker as well as her Facebook group, Globetrotting Poker Ladies. And after the interview it gets REALLY weird when Jim’s Mom takes some liberties in the YouTube chat… Plus we give away a free prize at the end! 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!

We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
