Hi All!


I hope everyone who celebrates had a wonderful Easter holiday.  As you are aware we took the day off from Live Training for Easter Sunday, but resume our regular schedule on Monday the 1st.

Daylight savings in Europe caught up with the PSO servers on the 31st of March, so we are back in sync between ET and GMT.   The time changes on the 7th April in Australia & New Zealand, after which we will all be back in sync with the normal Live Training schedule again! 

My weekend sessions continue to be well received, so I will continue to offer them.  As spring falls upon us in the Americas and Europe, we naturally spend more time outdoors with friends and family on the weekends, and traditionally live training attendance dips to reflect that.  If you like being able to attend my coaching sessions live at these times, I encourage you to make every effort to continue to do so!  Even if you can’t sit and observe the entire hour, just getting logged into the classroom will help get your attendance counted and that’s how you vote to keep these slots available, with your attendance!  

Here’s what I have on tap in April:

My regular Thursday Live Training Sessions continue at 20ET and Saturdays will be running  at 14ET on the  6th and 27th, and  17ET on the 13th.  I will also be offering  a Sunday coaching at 14ET directly before the  Sunday Special on the 28th to be providing a total of 4 classes at Euro-friendly hours.  Topics in April will include a Stat Sleuth session, Hand analysis potpourri, Big Pairs and Bad boards #2, a theory class on playing draws vs different villain types, and various reviews including a very LAG cash game session review in the Diary of a M@ni@c featuring PSO member M@ni@c86!

Here’s what’s the rest of the crew has on tap for April:

PS Team Online Pro Tyler “frosty012” Frost will be with us on Sunday the 7th and 14th of April at 14ET with some live play action at 100NL Full Ring… be sure not to miss out on live training from a PS Red Spade!

Andy is on vacation at the time of this writing, he is off the first week of April and his training topics will be set when he returns.

Chris will be continuing his coaching in the 180-man tournaments with another 180 man mission and a hand history review of a game he played recently where the new payout structure of these games is taken into consideration Chris uses it to his advantage!  He will also be doing a class discussing earning respect at the table on the 2nd at 16ET… be sure to tune in for this important but often overlooked topic!

Gareth will be running more 6-max cash game sessions in April including a session focusing on how his opponents should be ranging him in game and how to use that information to your advantage, and a unique topic on the 8th at 15ET on Asking the Right Questions, which focuses on how YOU can maximize your value and learning process from Live Training!

Andre is off in April, we’ll look forward to his return to the Live Training schedule in May.

Flix will be doing 2 more Leakfinder sessions, in which he helps PSO members find and plug leaks in their game in this popular and beneficial review format.
