This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview John Barrows, the Casino Tournament Manager at Running Aces! John gets right into the merits of different tournament structures, and how he and the Running Aces gang got involved with RecPoker “back in the day”. He also shares what makes for a successful poker room, the issue of shot clocks, penalties for rule-breakers and how they are enforced, and a lot more!
Plus we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!
