The paywall of Poker Industry PRO, the world’s only premium news, data and analytics platform dedicated to the online poker industry, has been lifted for 24 hours, starting today.

The special gift to all readers is part of pokerfuse’s ten-year birthday celebrations this month. This has already included a series of exclusive interviews with industry insiders, reflecting on a decade after Black Friday. Expect more surprises in the coming week.

The PRO platform itself is also celebrating its eighth birthday this month. In that time PRO has changed names, redesigned platforms, changed its output and its Editors, but it holds true to the same core principles today as established in 2013: To offer an independent, analysis and data-focused platform to help those in the industry understand trends and developments in online poker.

As of now, the entire platform is open to the public. Go to now to explore the entire platform, with no paywall messages or blocks.

This means, among other things, you can read our entire eight-year archive of PRO-exclusive content. That is over 5500 exclusive news articles, available today only.
