MaREC Madness

This year, RecPoker has created a 16-person, heads-up No Limit Hold ’em tournament as our answer to March Madness… we call it MaREC Madness!

Sixteen members of the RecPoker core team and community will be facing off in a heads-up bracket to determine this year’s Heads-Up Champion of RecPoker. The winners earn a shout out on the RecPoker podcast and some serious bragging rights.

Watch on Twitch Thursdays

Watch the matches unfold every Thursday night in March at 7:30pm CT at Hole cards will be shown and RECing Crew members (and perhaps some special guests) will be commentating LIVE on the play.

Our upcoming MaREC Madness schedule is:

Thursday, March 16: (special early start) 7:30 pm CST — 4 second round matchups

Thursday, March 23: 8:00 pm CST — 2 semi-final matchups

Thursday, March 30: 8:00 pm CST — Best of 3 Finals
