Poker Blog

51 posts

Welcome to our poker blog. As some of you may know, we started out our first website as just an online poker forum. We then built a little website around that but then switched our focus to the online casino world where our real passion lay and thus Slots Guide & Yes No Casino was born! The poker forum is still alive and kicking and soon we are going to be merging the two websites into one which will allow us to concentrate our focus rather than spreading our resources too thinly.

On our poker forum though we have a large core of loyal, regular and dedicated players, some of whom have actually started their own blogs. We are going to be showcasing those blogs here in this poker blog section, though our most active poker blogger, Tom, is going to be getting his very own separate blog as it is fast becoming an epic monster blog which deserves it’s own dedicated separate section!

Poker session planning

So today I thought I’d talk about something I haven’t heard many people on this forum (let alone in the MTT community) bring up. I’m sure a lot of you play relatively consistently, I’m sure lots of you play long sessions (Sunday being a prime example), I’m sure lot’s of […]
