This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew interview recreational poker player LoriAnn Persinger! LoriAnn shares some stories about her time in the military, becoming an expert on winning game shows, what changed (or didn’t change) after her big WPT score, why streams are so important to her learning about poker, and how her enthusiasm and positivity has opened doors for her in the poker world and in life!

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!
