RecPoker | Episode 515 – Lara Eisenberg

By Jim Reid
September 11, 2023

This week our own Ben Enslow is stepping into the hosting chair and we are throwing back to another great interview in Kim Kilroy’s Poker Empowerment series – featuring WSOP bracelet-winner Lara Eisenberg! Recorded a while ago, Lara shares some memories about her then recent run at the WSOP, what led to her success at the tables, what its like balancing poker with a rich, full professional life, and some experiences she’s faced as a woman player in a game dominated by men. 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!
