By Steve Fredlund
November 21, 2020

David Lappin is the co-host of the Chip Race, ambassador for Unibet Poker, and a great player and ambassador for the game. Steve, Jim & Rob sit down with David to chat poker, podcasting, philosophy, and take as many shots as we can at David’s co-host Dara O’Kearney. Great conversation and a lot of fun was had by all!

RecPoker is a vibrant and encouraging poker learning community. We are committed to learning the game, but our priority is building healthy relationships where we can not only grow in the game, but grow in our enjoyment of life.
