By Jim Reid
October 16, 2023

(EXPLICIT LANGUAGE) This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Abe Limon, known among other reasons as the former owner of Live At The Bike and his popular Poker Sesh! Abe has been a fixture in the poker world for the last 25 years and shares his thoughts on a range of topics. He discusses the history of poker learning on boards like 2+2 and rec.gambling.poker, to private games of yesteryear and the state of poker today. He also shares his portfolio of advantage plays available to casino-goers, the differences between tournament and cash play, and how to spot less-experienced players at the tables.

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!
