Dusk Till Dawn, Heaven for Poker Players6 years ago
DuskTill Dawn is the largest live poker club in Europe, created and owned by Rob Yong, who worked really hard to make his dreams come true.
Yong used to play blackjack, but his first contact with poker was by accident in his local casino - Galla in Nottingham. He accidentally entered the wrong room where his friends were playing poker and decided to join them. He fell in love with the game and started travelling the world, playing poker in numerous casinos.
Rob didn't think about developing his own poker business, but life is unpredictable. The idea of Dusk Till Dawn was born when Rob and his friend Nick White arrived late to a tournament. Luckily, they didn't get a chance to play poker that night but a sequence of events changed their lives. Nick’s comment on how they should have their own casino made Rob think about it and that’s how Dusk Till Dawn was born.
To open Dusk Till Dawn we were forced to apply for a full casino license with all of the additional costs, taxes and regulation. The delays cost us over £1m." www.dusktilldawnpoker.com;
Rob has been working since he was 21 years old, so he had experience with different jobs. His work experience certainly helped in developing the most impressive looking club in Europe. Originally, DTD was supposed to be a place where Rob and his friends could play cards, but the business expanded and the club turned out to be very successful.
Dusk Till Dawn is appreciated for many reasons. The club is famous for its great customer service and modern looks. Thanks to Rob, who is always looking for ways to improve customer service, the DTD team speaks directly to customers, making sure that they are happy and satisfied. Managed by experienced poker players, the staff are able to understand their members and offer them what they need. DTD, a place that hosts most of the largest events in the UK , is also well known for making huge guarantees.I feel it is of the great importance to share DTD's strategy with our members, this way the members will have more understanding of our decision making and have some remote faith that we actually know the direction we are trying to follow." www.dusktilldawnpoker.com;
Poker is a massive industry and if you want to be one of the best you must be unique and willing to take a risk. Rob, founder of the DTD, owns several pubs, a recruitment business, and is Chairman of the Eastwood Town Football Club. Those who know Rob often describe him as a humble and successful businessman who is not afraid of challenges.
