Priceless advice for the rec player

I’m a recreational player trying to improve my game, and the Rec.Poker podcast is just what I was looking for. My motivation to study increases with each episode.

The episode with Gripsed is the best. He delivered an awesome combination of entertainment and education. Rec.Poker should put him on the Rec.ing Crew! I don’t play cash, but imma buying his book.

Keep up the great work. Rec.Poker rules!
