  • It's called the Open Skill League ??

    Well the Open Skill League is a misnomer for Skill.

    Survival and not playing many hands for 2 hours because of the carnage you see before you.

    Tilt? Don't tilt. All you have is shove fold range. After 4 hours there is a glimmer of hope. Well 1c top 90 get paid.

    Then it gets much worse because the field hasn't been thinned to any Skill level.

    Made a FT in 5 hours and feel sick I didn't take it down. So I can take 2 points from this:

    1) Sick not winning, 2) Didn't tilt.

    Dear ForrestFive,

    You finished the tournament in 8th place. A USD 0.12 award has been credited to your Real Money account.

    The prize money is not in the individual games but in your cumulative effort for the month. You have to play a lot of games very well to make the first page of the monthly leader board and that will pay off in the long run by making you a better player and that is what the school is trying to acheive.
    I have not been paid by PSO for this message but if they do send me a ticket to anything it will be graciously appreciated.

      Yes, my perspective of the carnage seen, was playing one or two Open League Skill --or-- a $1 Skill qualifier. With a volume of games you probably can survive into the leader points. umbup:
