RecPoker | Episode 503 – Deep Dive into Player Reads

By Jim Reid
July 31, 2023

This week Jim Reid and the RecPoker RECing Crew celebrate the recent release of episode #500 by taking our audience behind the curtain into our Premium Membership! We are sharing one of Chris Jones’s Deep Dive seminars from June, when the theme of the month was Player Reads. In this video, we break down how and when to use reads at the table to adjust our strategy. If you are listening to the audio version of the show, you might consider switching to YouTube for this episode – you’ll get a little more out of it. We look at four specific spots and ask the question: what kinds of information would help us adjust our standard play into more exploitive play. And stick around to the end for another audio cue flub by Jim, ugh. Plus we give away a free prize at the end for folks in the YouTube chat. Join us LIVE on YouTube next Monday at 7:30 ET for free to ask our guests questions in real-time, and you can win too!

We also 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/
