PG Poker Sit n Go Strategy / Online Tournament Strategy Weekly Digest #1

Had an idea for a weekly digest of the best articles and forum posts from around the web... so here is the first 'PG Poker Sit n Go Strategy / Online Tournament Strategy Weekly Digest!'. The idea is simple, I scan many forums each week - 2+2, P5s, CardPlayer and PFX being the main ones. Big fan of blogs too so will note any particularly interesting blog posts here.

Every now and then an interesting post comes up on SNGs, MTTs etc what I'll be doing is saving them up and once a week posting here in weekly digest form... each link will open in a new window for easy navigation. If you do not want a new window then right click instead (think this works anyway!). If you spot anything that is worthy of inclusion (including your own blogs!) then drop me a comment or a mail and it can go in next week.

Right, enough talk - on with the first digest!

Here's an idea: Use a different color than black for your hyperlinked text.
