This week Jim Reid and the panel are joined again by Greg Clem, our resident RECing Crew Interviewer, who puts our own Rob Washam in the hot seat! Rob is one of the founding members of RecPoker and an active member of the RECing Crew – affectionately referred to as the Zen Master of the panel, Rob runs the biweekly Book Study group and contributes heavily to the strategy content RecPoker produces every month.
Rob talks about how he got started in poker, how he likes to learn things, and how he met Steve and joined RecPoker. He also discusses playing in home games, early podcast editions, his favourite books, playing in the WSOP Main Event, how to improve as a new player, mindfulness, and a lot more!
Rob is active on Twitter as @rabman50
We also go over this week’s home game results and discuss these topics:
