By Jim Reid
October 09, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interviewed Caitlyn Arnwine! Caitlyn shared her experiences in the poker world, including her meteoric rise in earnings and her advocacy efforts for causes such as homelessness and representation in poker media. She also engaged in a discussion of the challenges faced by women in the male-dominated world of poker. Caitlyn and Sasha Sutton shared their experiences and emphasized the importance of mental game work in overcoming these challenges. The group also discussed the need for a more inclusive and respectful poker community. Caitlyn shared her time management strategies and reading list, and the panel delved into the complex issues surrounding women in poker, including gender bias and harassment.

Jim provided updates on upcoming RecPoker events and discussed the home game league and monthly competition for premium members. The winners for September were announced, and they will join the show sometime in the future to ask questions to a guest. The group discussed the competition’s points system and the top five players for September. The show ended with a raffle to raise awareness about food insecurity and encourage donations to local food banks, with a great prize going to one of our free YouTube viewers – 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!
