PSO's unique Live Training sessions provide you with valuable opportunities to improve your play. We have a lot going on during December, here are the key things you need to know:

We will have some special time slot offerings this month:

On Saturdays there will be a class scheduled in a late morning/early afternoon Eastern Time slot, with the exception of Christmas weekend.

On the Thursdays of the 13th and 27th ahar010 will be conducting sessions at 5 AM ET (Evening for our Australian/New Zealand members).

If attendance is high for these trainings, we could see these time slot offerings on a more permanent basis, so keep your eye on the upcoming trainings list and if these are times that would appeal to you in the future, make every effort to get into the training room for these sessions and join the head count!

PokerStars Team Online Pro Tyler “frosty012” Frost’s two Sunday sessions for December will be the first two weekends, the 2nd and 9th, at 14:00 ET, be sure not to miss out on live training from a PS Pro!

For more information visit the Live Training section of the PSO web site today!   Remember, there is no cost to attend these trainings, they are all free, brought to you by PSO and PokerStars… and you register and enter the classroom late (or leave early if necessary)… so get in as much of this great opportunity as you can!

Our Live Training Team will be enjoying time with their families on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day (Monday and Tuesday), and on New Year’s Eve the following Monday, so there will be a break from the regular live training classes, Beginners series or Daily Game hosting on those special days.  The Live Training team wishes you and yours a happy and safe holiday season!

Choo choo, choo choo... - the December Community News Express is now trundling into our destination station. We hope you enjoyed the ride and now have plenty of ideas about how to spend the coming month at PSO. Have fun while improving your play and enjoy a great Christmas when it comes along!
