By Jim Reid
February 06, 2024

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview Joey Ingram! Joey talks about his roller-caster of a poker career and shares his plans for transitioning from his well-earned reputation for investigative reporting into a more versatile and multi-faceted role within the poker industry. Whether it’s two cards or four, Joey has a lot of love for the poker world and the endless opportunities to improve as a player that it presents! The panel discusses the importance of game selection, how Papi likes to study and work on his game, what surprised him most about the poker world, and what he still LOVES about poker. Joey also shares the importance of community, what he’s working on now, and some fun collaborations coming up with RecPoker a little later this year!

We also play Stake/Study Stack with Garrett Adelstein, Tom Dwan, and Doug Polk, and we Close The Action with our speed round. 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!
