  • New PSO tourney .. 8000+

    Im done with Poker School

    just tried so hard but in a field of 7000 nuts who are being idiots and 1000 PSO members trying to survive ...... It was no fun, and I'm learning cos its fun.

    didn't matter how tight or how aggressive .... 5 callers all the time and most of them all in, I came across one guy from the 'old' PS

    Well Done Poker School .... you gained 7000 nuts and lost some real people that enjoyed playing in our league.

    Just like in these tournaments you need to adopt a more patient attitude as there will be for certain 1500 very competent poker players that get rewarded with premier league status in August.

    I will be looking into helping the community via live trainings focusing on strategy for this type of event.

      May one enquire as to how many of the trainers actually either play or did play in the pso league in the first place?

        pardon?

        You mean 1500 players who contribute enough rake to your site.

          Most of them actually MB.. Honu, Ahar, Darkman, and Dave occasionally early onumbup: But I agree with you, finding training for this type of game will be difficult at best, when having AA is getting called by 3 to 8 people lol The only advice i can give is sit out the first 20 minutes or so, and then pray

            There's a very simple solution - simply allow only 1 tournament per day. This would help lower the number of entries, since there would be no playing 4-6 games a day. The other benefit is a more level playing field, since the maximum games is the same for everyone.

            As for me, I think I'll concentrate on the women's league (really miss the NAPL too).

              Hi roomik17 as you say some of the trainers played EARLY ON. They must have gotten pretty bored pretty quickly then. I very much doubt any will find the time to be 'active' participants in this latest retro-incarnation. We need a new type of acronim for 'Sit Out and Pray' types - How about Soppys What can possibly be the point of having to sign up, pay for electricity just to sit out, sit out, sit out and hope a cat 1 hand does not get cracked? It was bad enough having to sit at tables where the clock was fully run down at every hand from hand one - with loads more likely to catch on a tournament may become a marathon. I would like to play poker and that means getting involved at the appropriate time. If I am going to sit out all the time I may as well use the screen space for a money table where I stand a better chance of putting into practice the valuable lessons learnt here. With the problems some poker sites are facing, PStars has a fantastic opportunity to become the defacto standard for online schooling and I feel that that is being wasted. It will only take another site to wake up and grab the opportunity and PStars may well see its customers leaving in droves IMHO. MB

                        Solution

                        ok, here's the training.

                        1: sit out for 1 hr and 15 mins .... this will leave you with a stack between 580 - 880 depending on blinds and speed of game etc.

                        2: go all in on the next decent hand (you already are =/- 2250 in a field of 10 000)

                        3:if you win you have a stack to play cos there are still enough nut's in the game to get 3X a call or even a re raise not that you can win anything then but the nut that calls the re raise will leave the building probably giving you even more hope for a higher finnish)

                        4: go ahead and play your game with the chips you won if you did......if you lost you have a + around 14 (ish)

                        I don't need to be paid for this advise but I did test it today

                          And what exactly has that to do with PLAYING Poker?

                            By not sitting out and running the clock you get to the same position with a lot more money. But I would advise playing some hands, only good hands and don't invest to much money pre-flop. Only bet large amounts if the flop hit you.
                            Also if there are lots of layers in a hand and there is a flush/straight posibility out there you can bet someone has it and it would be risky to invest to much of your money in that hand.
                            I don't know if my advice is any good but I thought I'd put in my 2 cents.
