RecPoker | Episode 539 – DGAF

By Jim Reid
December 04, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview DGAF about his poker journey and his famous Sessions podcast series. Billy talks about his various roles in the poker industry and what it takes to succeed in the ‘soft hustle’ of the poker environment. The group discusses, whales, assholes, and what kind of behavior will ensure you are NEVER invited to a home game or stream. DGAF even shares some great strategy notes about over-betting, plus some tips for less experienced players who find themselves at the cash tables and want to avoid getting picked on. But that’s not all! We also play Stake/Study/Stack with Bill Klein, Eric Persson, and Andy Stacks and we “Close the Action” with our speed round. Finally, 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!
