Dusk till Dawn poker gets back to basics and Rob Yong explains his reasons in the video included. Despite some memorable moments, Yong believes the time is right for casino games to make way for poker. Looking across the industry as a whole, tournaments, operators and live venues have enjoyed upswings over the last 12 months. In the UK specifically, tournament fields at events such as the Goliath reached new highs in 2019.
Poker is much better than casino games or anything else , making money on poker is easier than casino games and more possible , especially the better poker player you are . I praise Yong for deciding to remove casino games

I think this decision has a lot to do with Rob Yong and his particular position within the poker industry and (as he admits) the manner in which the authorities regard Dusk Till Dawn. It was difficult to secure the license in the first place and the hearings prior to opening emphatically underlined the club was to specialize in poker.
I also think Yong would like to establish himself as a rival to Leon Tsoukernik (Kings Casino Rozvadov with recent expansion into Prague). It's a lot easier for most to travel to Nottingham than the Czech border (and the city has much more to offer than Rozvadov which is a hamlet with nothing to do). That said Kings is a far larger operation with numerous tables and a large footprint.
So I think Rob Yong is simply talking about his own priorities. In fact it would make little sense for most casinos to follow suit as the poker rooms do not generate the bulk of any regular casinos earnings as far as I am aware.

Making money on casino games is impossible. In blackjack, you are not allowed to count cards, which shouldn't be illegal. The only way to earn money is by poker because you don't play against the house. That is my humble opinion.

I am not aware of the financial benefits that this decision has.
I just know that casinos make most of their profits from games that the house has the edge.
As a poker player it is refreshing to hear that and hopefully others will follow the example.
