RecPoker | Episode 567 – Matt Affleck Part 2

By Jim Reid
March 11, 2024

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew are BACK with pro player and coach Matt Affleck! We get right into the strategy talk, taking questions from social media and the YouTube chat to dive into subjects like limping, donk bets, how to study efficiently, and how to apply your knowledge at the tables. Matt also shares the benefits of playing online vs. live, using variance against villains at the table, expanding your ranges to exploit other players, and a lot more!

We also play Stake/Study Stack with Brock Wilson, Jonathan Jaffe, and Alex Fitzgerald and 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!
