Gareth James is the founder of the MTT Poker School and Academy and brings a lifetime of work as an educator and coach to his passion for helping people improve their study of poker. Gareth recently started a monthly study group for RecPoker Premium Members and we talk about that. We also discuss Gareth’s poker philosophy, what he finds interesting about the game, how recreational players can improve the most, and more.
We go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
How to help us out – https://rec.poker/support/
Home Games – https://rec.poker/homegame/
Go Premium! – https://rec.poker/premium/
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. The membership website at rec. poker is awesome, but it’s just a tool to help us build that community. You can join for FREE, giving you access to the groups, forums, and other member benefits. If you want to enjoy the premium content, or become part of the RECing Crew, those options are available, and you can get $10 off your first payment using the code RECPOKER.
