Rec Poker Podcast

Hosted by Steve Fredlund

Steve is a recreational Texas Hold'em tournament player and regular at Running Aces Casino & Racetrack. Unable to find a podcast to improve his game that fit his learning style, he decided to start his own.  After playing with several different formats, he settled in to a weekly release leveraging the knowledge and insight from many of the best players in Minnesota.  The goal of the podcast is to improve the number and quality of players, with the added bonus of getting to know many of the players.  While the first round of interviews spends some time getting into backgrounds, the heart of the podcast will be to provide specific strategic information to help recreational players improve their game.

Running Aces is excited to be the official sponsor of the Rec Poker podcast and we are both looking forward to a great partnership.

Current Episode

Episode 49: Nearing the Bubble

In this first episode of the new format, we look at what happens in multi-table tournaments as we near the bubble. This topic was triggered by questions from Steve Vang and Paul Morton. Often this is a tricky place for many recreational players trying to balance playing tight to get in the money with playing aggressive to give themselves a chance to win the tournament. You will hear from Jonathan Little, Chris "Fox" Wallace, Mike Schneider, and Dr. Tricia Cardner -- your host Steve Fredlund even chimes in with ICM considerations.
