This week, we bring you highlights from the latest PokerStars, partypoker, and 888poker blogs.

Poker's Sleeping Giants

What would you do if you won a major tournament? Would you go out and celebrate, call all your friends, or would you just go to sleep?

Perhaps not so surprisingly many top poker players opt for sleep, since they just put in a long grind and there will be time to celebrate the next day. The PokerStars Blog post titled Poker's Sleeping Giants talks about this phenomenon, with big event winners "Gambler4444" and "frost3ggg" stating that getting some rest was the first thing they thought about after a big win.

Perhaps Mike "SirWatts" Watson said it best when revealing, "I drank a celebratory beer... and got some sleep."

Read more on the PokerStars blog about how many players tend to think sleep first, party later.

Hear The People

Partypoker believes that poker players should not only be able to express their opinions, but be heard as well. Every other Saturday, partypoker will be asking for your opinion on Facebook and Twitter about a variety of topics. They plan to collate the responses and see if there is anything that can be improved for the future.

This past week's topic was about the structure of the Dusk Till Dawn tournament tickets featured at its poker room. Many players engaged by responding to a Facebook post on this topic, and also on Twitter by including the hashtag #HearThePPP.

Be on the lookout for more topics posted by partypoker, and let your voice be heard. Head to the partypoker blog to learn more about how to make your opinion known.
