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.
 
You are invited to engage further by following on Twitter @RecPoker or joining the Facebook group.  You are also welcome to contact Steve directly at stevefredlund@gmail.com.
 
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 62: KQ suited scenario

In this episode, Jonathan Little, Chris "Fox" Wallace, Derek Smith, Taylor Maas, Doug Behrens & host Steve Fredlund discuss a specific scenario facing a raise with KQ suited in late position:
* 10 person table in early stages of tourney
* Blinds are 300/600 with 100 ante
* Everyone has 30,000 chips (50 big blinds)
* Every player is a standard tight aggressive player
* Folds to player in UTG+2 who raises to 1,600
* Folds to us in cutoff with KQ hearts
 
The goal is to give thoughts on this base scenario, but then explore how some of the assumptions would have to change to change the action.  So the questions posed to those providing input are:
1) What is your typical course of action under the base assumptions?
2) Holding all else equal, how would the stack size of the initial raiser have to change for us to change our action?
3) Holding all else equal, how would our stack size have to change for us to change our action?
4) Holding all else equal, how would the stacks sizes of those behind us have to change for us to change our action?
5) Holding all else equal, how would the player type of the initial player have to change for us to change our action?
6) Holding all else equal, how would the player type(s) of those behind us have to change for us to change our action?
7) What other factors would drive us to potentially change our action?
