RecPoker Podcast | Ep 180 – Facing Frequent Shoves Online

By Steve Fredlund
May 26, 2020

On this week’s episode, #180, the panel discusses how to handle the situation that comes up often in long re-entry, big field, small buy-in tournaments online; and that situation is having those players that frequently are shoving 30, 40, even 70 big blind stacks over an open raise. It can be frustrating to face, but what do we do?
