PokerGO’s latest original programming series is titled “Beyond the Rail.” This eight-episode series gives you a unique behind-the-scenes look into the 2018 World Series of Poker. In the coming two weeks we will highlight each episode and tell you exactly why this is must-watch action for every poker fan.
Forty-five days in a row, 12 hours a day. That’s Drea Renee’s routine at the World Series of Poker as a massage therapist. Working on the backs, arms, necks, and shoulders of poker players that have millions of dollars on the line, Renee has a unique perspective of the highest stakes games and on this episode of Beyond the Rail you get to learn what her life is all about.
“To be able to do my job successfully there are two sides to it. Some people just get their license and start massaging but I think it’s something more internal. Being able to meet someone’s muscles and their mind and personality and really mesh with that, I think that creates a really great massage,” Drea Renee said about her job at the World Series of Poker.
On top of going through her daily routine of massaging, Renee also hosts videos for Poker Central, reporting from the floor at the Rio. In addition to that, her popular video series “Deep Issues” can be found on PokerGO on-demand right now as she interviews the best of the best from her massage chair ranging from Steffen Sontheimer to Stephen Chidwick and Bryn Kenney to Randall Emmett.
