RecPoker Podcast | Ep 172 – Online Poker

By Steve Fredlund
March 24, 2020

For many recreational players, the idea of playing online seems appealing, especially in our current world of social distancing and self-quarantine. But where do we start? What are the risks? Is it even legal? What should we be playing? What site should I use? Is my money safe?

The RecPoker panel of Steve Fredlund, Jim Reid, Chris Jones, Rob Washam, and John Somsky discuss these questions and more, highlighting John’s extensive knowledge and involvement with online poker and the personal experience playing online with the panel.

RecPoker has another additional related opportunity for you:

  • On Monday March 30, members at REC.POKER can join a deep dive discussion with Jim, Taylor and others focusing on playing online including looking at the tools to improve your play and analysis (this is available even during the one-month free trial period)

RecPoker has launched daily tournaments on PokerStars we are calling our Social Distance Series to help stay connected and sharp on the felt. Click HERE for detail about how to join.
