Hi All!


Excitement is in the air at PokerStars and PSO in August, and that includes Live Training!  Starting in August we will be having special WCOOP promotional ticket trainings (Details will be in the forum under news, with a discussion thread in the PSO Support forum for questions when this promo begins).   These trainings will run twice a week, at various times each week, and will be focused on general MTT and satellite strategy.   The PSO Tournament Series in August is the Dog Days of Summer Series, and trainers may be hosting and featuring some of these events during their live trainings the first half of the month as well. 

Here’s what is on tap for this month:

I will be running MTT reviews in August from large field MTT’s for my WCOOP specials since the WCOOP NLHE games  are all large field events.  I will also be featuring more Pot Limit Omaha content by reviewing a deep run I had in one of the PSO Series of Poker PLO events in June.  And I will follow up last month’s Fixed Limit Hold’em Week special presentation with 2 play of hands review sessions in FLHE cash games, one from 1c/2c and one from 25c/50c.  I’ll be hosting the Sunday Special on the 25th with another Home Games edition, come join me to play some home games and talk poker!  These games will be play money buy ins so they are both bankroll and US friendly.

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


PS Team Online Pro Tyler “frosty012” Frost will be with us on Sunday the 4th and 18th in August at 14ET… in the early session Tyler will be covering HUD usage for full ring cash game, with the latter being a regular full ring coaching session!


Andy will be hosting the Sunday Special on the 4th, and a regular coaching session on the 5th.  He’ll be taking some time off for the rest of the month, planning to return to the regular schedule in September.


Chris will be continuing his coaching in the small stakes multi-table tournaments, both of the 180-man variety and larger field events, with his primary time slot being Tuesdays at 16ET.  He’ll also be hosting some of the special WCOOP sessions.  Chris will host the PSO Dog Days of Summer Series Main Event for his Sunday Special on the 11th.


Gareth will be off the first half of the month doing reporting for PokerStars… he’ll return to Live Training in the latter half of the month to run his usual 6-max cash game coaching along with some MTT related material for the WCOOP.  

PS Team Online Pro Felix "xflixx" Schneiders will be doing another zoom session and a coaching session, and will be doing some MTT coaching for WCOOP as well.  He’s hosting the Sunday Special on the 18th!
