RecPoker | Episode 517 – Crazy Home Games

By Jim Reid
September 18, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew talk about all the crazy different kinds of home games out there – wild cards are just the tip of the iceberg today! The group runs down some popular home game variants that you might want to try out yourself, and they even talk about some of their favorite NON-poker games (shudder)! 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!

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