2013, here we come - We hope you enjoyed the Christmas and New Year festivities and even managed to find some quality time to spend with us here at PSO! With your poker goals for the new year in mind, what do we have lined up in January for you? Let's take a quick look:



Happy New Year from the Live Training Team!

In January we  continue with the Saturday sessions, and will continue offering these as long as attendance warrants it.  We will also be reducing the daily sessions to 1 per day typically instead of 2 or 3 per day Monday-Thursday.   We will typically run 3-4 per week during the evening European hours, and 1-2 per week during the evening CA/US hours.

All of this is attendance driven - in short, if you want see more live training offerings, show PokerStars by attending as many classes as possible!   Watch Live Training videos in the archive!  It’s good for your game.

PS Team Online Pro Tyler “frosty012” Frost will be with us on Sunday the 13th and 20th in January at 14ET… be sure not to miss out on live training from a PS Red Spade! 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 anyone can attend all live trainings, even the VPP restricted ones will allow all PSO members into the room as a viewer… the VPP restriction only impacts the ability to type in the chat box but all members can see and hear everything regardless of their VPP level. See you in class!
