    Hello PSOers, i have a question

    Looking at your last three scores compared to your earlier ones I think you have learnt a lot in a short time. Patience has been learned and now your good to play cash,mtts or sngs.

    I would reccomend starting out with cash as it is a little more forgiving than the other two formats.
    If your patient you can win and beat 2NL quite easily. I tend to get bored at this level and go crazy from time to time. But starting with cash will really develop your hand reading skills.

    MTTs can eat your account up quickly and have a high variance.
    I know a lot of the higher limit players and they are not balling as much as you think since they are in makeup to their backers in pretty large amounts. I started out with mtts and kind of regret doing it that way,lot of people do start here.

    SNGs are where you are going to run into more regulars.Depending on the size of the field you may be waiting a long time to cash your first one.I suggest starting out with single table sngs if your wanting to get into these and move up to 18 man once you are beating Single tables and so on.

    Maybe see how you do next month before depositing just to test your skill and give you a bigger database of tourneys to look at for leaks and issues.

          What he means is if u finish in the top 2000 you win money. Were your sitting now your in the money! If it finished now you will cash $2.50 so keep playing tight and climb that ladder for more $$$

            Actually it will only be 50c as you do not have the required level of VPPs for the higher prize level.

            If you can, earn them before the end of this month for a higher prize level next month.
