RecPoker | Special Edition – Kevin Mathers

By Steve Fredlund
March 01, 2022

In this special edition of the podcast, we interview Kevin Mathers LIVE on YouTube on the day the WSOP releases their schedule for this year! We take questions from the panel and the guests in the chat, and cover a range of topics from a day in the life of KevMath to the logistics of the new venues. Plus the gang reviews the schedule event by event, and we announce a new contest: Everyone who signs up for premium membership between now and June 1 will be entered into a draw – and the winner will play as Jim’s tag-team partner in bracelet event #55, with their buy-in covered! Hope you’ve got some free time in June!
