Tuesday, December 16th, 2008 | Poker Articles, Poker Tournament | 2 Comments

Submitted by Kochan, this article is a part of the Poker Tournament series. So after barely playing since Monday I thought I would put in a solid MTT session on Saturday.

Written by Markus, this article belongs to the Poker News series Ask any serious poker player out there and they would likely agree with the statement that a poker table is a battleground in which players are doing battle with one another to take away each other’s chips and break their spirit in the process.
