As I sit down to write this Community News for November,
I am very aware that many of our PSO friends in the USA are expeciencing the very unpleasant and frightening natural forces and after effects of Hurricane Sandy. The severe flooding, forced evacuations, power failures and other disruption mean that for some of our members the safety of loved ones, shelter, food and basic sanitation are all that matter until normality begins to return. Our thoughts are with all those adversely affected.
However if you are fortunate enough to be able to enjoy some time here at PSO then we have some top treats in store for you in November, so let's take a look at what's lined up:
1. YOUR PERSONAL SCHEDULER is here!
Maybe you use a diary, calendar or notebook to keep track of your Live Training sessions and games you intend to play, or perhaps you just try to rely on your memory. And it's likely that at one time or another you have been distracted and unfortunately missed a PSO session you were looking forward to. Well we want you never to miss another one so we are pleased announce our latest cool feature, "YOUR PERSONAL SCHEDULER". It provides personalised diary and reminder functions within the PSO site! It's a great new feature which we hope will improve your PSO experience even more.

2. THE DAILY GAME - every day!
Improve your game in a fun and interactive way with "The Daily Game".
The Daily Game takes place each day at PokerStars School. During the one-hour session one of our experienced live trainers will rail the ring tables in the PokerStars School Community Home Game Club and commentate on what he sees. He will analyse your play and offer suggestions and tips on how you can improve your game.
You may play using either play money or the real stuff, the choice is yours. So find out more on this page
and we look forward seeing you in The Daily Game!
3. DOUBLE VISION SUNDAY coming up 4th November!
We all kmow Sunday is THE big poker day. Huge regular tournaments with mind-boggling prizepools are hosted every Sunday on PokerStars. Well let's try multiplying your big Sunday poker fun by two and what do we get? Why, "Double Vision Sunday" is what we get! Not one, but two opportunities within half-an-hour of being dealt into your favourite Sunday majors. Twice the fun with twice the potential rewards!
Read all about it here
but don't blame us if you wake up on Monday with a mild case of double vision!
4. EXCLUSIVE LIVE TRAINING CLASSES AT PSO!
Our hard working and dedicated Live Trainers
are serving up some really tasty poker tuition sessions this coming month, here's just a sample:
Don't miss a wonderful learning opportunity from a PokerStars Pro!!! PokerStars Team Online Pro Tyler "frosty012" Frost
will be running two trainings in November on Full Ring Cash game ZOOM play. These will take place on the 11th and 18th of the month at 14:00 ET
, directly before the regular Sunday Special.
One of the best ways to learn is to get involved on an interactive basis, and that's exactly what we offer you with Live Training at PSO.
During our Live Training classes, the trainer will guide you through theory, strategy, and real life hand examples, and you'll be able to ask questions of the trainer in real time as a participant in the session. Or, are you the shy type? No problem... register as a viewer instead of a participant, and you'll be able to watch and hear everything that goes on in the classroom, while letting the others do the talking.
For more information visit the Live Training section
of the PSO web site.
Remember, there is no cost to attend these trainings, they are all free, brought to you by PSO and PokerStars… and you can even register and enter the classroom late (or leave early if necessary)… so get in as much of this great opportunity as you can!
From all of us here at PSO, we hope you are safe, secure and enjoying good fortune, while demonstrating your skills of course, at the poker tables!
