  • Cowboy's Challenge gives away more tickets!

    Hey Posse, I would like to take this opportunity to announce to you that PSO Admin has authorised me to increase the prizes for successful completion of the Cowboy's Challenge in February from 3 tickets to 10 tickets!
    Each of the first 3 months the Challenge has been growing and of course they are recognising this. Now more than ever you should be trying to win extra prizes for games you are playing anyway. Just follow this link to the rules and then the 2nd to post your intent to play! That's pretty simple.

    That's a big Giddy Up to PSO Admin for the increase!

    So is this now a PSO sanctioned event?
    Forgive me for not following this but I always thought this was something you where responsible for not PSO! So it does get me interested when PSO is funding this for obvious reasons.

    I can see this is a challenge but at the same time who else would be allowed to offer staking in this forum! Just some thoughts.

            Guess Im not allowed to ask questions..lol

            Seriously dont assume everyone is in your cult and knows how to post a proper cowboy challenge!
            I stopped taking a interest in you when you started directing members away from the site with your
            affiliate gig and requesting everyones emails. You know I dont like you for those reasons and have told you straight in email so this is nothing new. As for my questions I dont see my stance on you as being a reason to dismiss my questions.

              You actually do benefit from this or are you selling yourself short?

              1.) Setup home game for PSO members
              2.) Create a following
              3.) Ask for all these members emails to hand out passwords
              4.) Start contacting some of these members with your links to other sites with offers of free money
              5.) Become a live trainer based off your Cowboy challenge
              6.) Continue to sell yourself in your videos
              7.) Offer coaching
              8.) Get booted as a live trainer,why?
              9.) Still post your skype for new members to get in touch with you,even though you no longer are a coach.

              These are the steps you take if you want to establish yourself.
              So to say you dont benefit from this is not true and you need to start pumping your chest and saying "I can bypass mod rules and even become a mod,ask me how"!
              I think rules should be followed by all and you never where punished for any of your shady behavior and yet I have seen others perma banned for the same thing.

              There you go,Im sure you ignore this post and hope it goes away like my last post to you.

                1.) Setup home game for PSO members what is the benefit to me?
                2.) Create a following - same question?
                3.) Ask for all these members emails to hand out passwords - providing private games to keep undesirable people out! Yes i see that benefit!
                4.) Start contacting some of these members with your links to other sites with offers of free money - helping americans that could no longer play on PS ( the best site online )
                5.) Become a live trainer based off your Cowboy challenge - Langolier can answer this cause he hired me
                6.) Continue to sell yourself in your videos - not sure what this means as PSO has total control over what is posted
                7.) Offer coaching - not sure how this fits but those that i was coaching before are seeing and results and they tell two friends and they tell two freinds and so on! Are you jealous?
                8.) Get booted as a live trainer,why? - again Langolir can answer this as he fired me! LOL
                9.) Still post your skype for new members to get in touch with you,even though you no longer are a coach. - please direct people to where I post my skype so more people can get ahold of me

                These are the steps you take if you want to establish yourself. - I am already established through hardwork. You should try it
                So to say you dont benefit from this is not true and you need to start pumping your chest and saying "I can bypass mod rules and even become a mod,ask me how"!
                I think rules should be followed by all and you never where punished for any of your shady behavior and yet I have seen others perma banned for the same thing.

                There you go,Im sure you ignore this post and hope it goes away like my last post to you.
                How could anyone ignore you ?

                Giddy Up!

                    Your answers are convenient for sure.

                    You know that PSO cant tell us why you where let go but what ever it was got you ousted immediately and I am sure they would tell you why!You are still here,so I would have to presume
                    they talked to you about it.

                    Black Friday is a good excuse for directing traffic away from Pokerstars,to bad you where doing this before then. I can see you have a excuse and most likely a member or two that will jump off a cliff to support you,so I will leave it at that.

                    You built a good con and that I can admire but thats not something that PSO is about.

                    Not sure how you turned my comment around to tell me to try being liking you,I will pass as I am my own man and dont need to follow in anothers footsteps. You ever want to take it to the felt I am all ears,but just so you know I am on leave till mid Feb. and then you can show me that "establishment through hardwork"!

                      Just my 2 cents, Since PSO is giving away $75, it should now be called "PSO Challenge", not Cowboys nor Honu challenge And I believe that a challenge is not a learning method and the $75 should be put towards training activities, this is a school after all. PS. Nothing against you Chris, just trying to show PSO, the logic of a school umbup:

                        Honu this is a post you made about skype,ok you dont give your skype name but Im sure people pm you for it after talking about private videos.

                        Thanks to all for your kind words. I am glad to have impacted so many people's games and just so you know, I have been doing training and analysis for over three years and that isn't going to change. I plan on producing my own videos and am always available via skype or pm in this forum.

                        The software I have used and continue to use works just fine and so I hope that the quality of my training here was never the issue. I was stunned to have received this notice the day that I received my new technology to allow good quality for the training but it is what it is.

                        It is not what happens to you in life that defines you , it's how you deal with what happens to you that defines you! Don't know who said it first!

                        I know you dont communicate with people up in the sticks and it comes through in the way you talk down to people. I pointed your lack of empathy for some members taking your challenge that is endorsed by PSO and it was crickets on your part.
                        I talk to you like a man in private message and you call me a goof!
                        Explain that your choice of words are ill advised and you go on to miss my point.
                        Have spelled it out for you over and over,I either get no response or a response like you got your head stuck in the clouds and speak another language.
                        So dont ever act I didnt try to talk to you and this is some blindside I am playing out. You saw this coming and as the walls close in you still want to stick to your story. Thats fine.

                          I'm truly sorry you are so miserable and feel I have some hidden agenda. My agenda is clear and always has been clear. To create a positive environment and to help develop members of PSO so that they can move out of the 90% statistic of a losing player. I was given an oportunity by The Langoliar to show those skills to others and due to lag issues was released. BTW Dave gave me to the end of January to keep training but I was pretty bummed and made the decision to stop that night ( just to answer to the abruptness - Not that you will beleive it anyway.) Some members see the value in that it's too bad you don't.

                          If you feel I am talking down to you or that I have no empathy for members this is truly unfortunate and for that I apologise.

                          For some reason you feel a hatred for me and I dont understand it other than I am likely not the only one and this is just how you treat people. I try not to respond because it is futile.

                          I can tell you this Isee, that if 39 people tell me stop posting in this forum I will do it!

                            Right on Cowboy! Just to say that the news about an extra 7 tickets being awarded each month is very welcome indeed! Personnally I have found the cowboy challenge helping me with both my bankroll management and improving my general level of play. I find that as each month goes by there are more and more PSO members taking part and some of those ROI's are very impressive. Thanks Chris for getting this great challenge off the ground! Raiser umbup:

                              There is just one reason why the Cowboy Challenge has become a fixture here. It is a very cheap way of building a bankroll while gaining those important bragging rights.

                              Be honest, isn't there just a wee bit of joy when you finish your 100 games and find out that you beat (insert name of player who is better than you) ROI this month? It is competition that allows one to play, within certain limits, against another in the game they find is their best.

                              If I could, I would be playing 27-player games against Moxie. As to Moxie, he would play the 45-player game. Yet we both are eligible for the Challenge. The old hedgehog would love to see Moxie one notch below my ROI. Not because of any annimosity between us, but because we both enjoy the competition to excel at the game we prefer. I'll acknowledge he is a better player than me, which adds an additional incentive.

                              As to why the site has offered prizes, that too should be understandable. In one word, MONEY. With these games now played with a game fee, it is to their benefit to encourage more play. Even the cheapest game is worth something. (23¢ + 2¢ = $2.00 to PokerStars) Take a gander at the list for this month. We have 25 players, some playing at levels higher than the minimum and do the math. People, the site loses nothing giving away tickets. If you don't turn that gift into cash, it's a case of no harm, no foul.
