I have to admit that I didn't take my first 20 to 30 PSO Skill League tournies that seriously.  I received points and got in the money on my first tourney and treated the next 20 or so tournies as freerolls.  I then got deep (55th) in a recent PSO and was seated with many "money" players.  I started to check profiles and people were actually doing quite well.  I had to defend my poor ranking, which wasnt easy.  My next tourney I did well (145) bubbled actually but still increased my ranking by 2000 spots with those two results.  Let see how it goes in the next few!
