Focus on Recreational Poker Says Rob Yong

Rob Yong, owner of land and online poker room Dusk Til Dawn, discussed the slowing of the poker craze in hid blog this week and expressed his thoughts on how the industry should take this time to focus on steady growth.

'The poker world needs online poker to make an extra effort to encourage new people to try this amazing game you can play at any age and [that] gives you the opportunity meet so many new and interesting people," Yong wrote.

Yong says operators should " us the RNG stats on a daily/weekly/monthly basis, display them in your poker lobby, give us absolute confirmation that we were just unlucky! I know the auditors check the RNG's for all of the online poker companies, but we don't read the annual audit report. It would be a simple task to publish the last x million RNG hand results.'

He discusses "bum-hunting" which involves professional players taking seats, not playing and waiting to spot an inexperienced player to take advantage of.

'I feel sick to my stomach when I see a player go bust and then the other 5 players just sit out until he reloads," says Yong.

Yong believes there should also be better control on player language, comments and etiquette while at the online poker tables.
