  • MoM Application

    Hi, This is my application for Member of the Month!

    I first started seriously playing poker, online or otherwise, in May of last year. While I have dabbled in PLO and Badugi, I am mostly a NLHE tournement player. Fairly early on I somehow managed cash in the Top 4 of $4.40 4max. It was kind of all down hill from there. Over the next 7-8 months I struggled with my game, going from complete novice, to having just enough information to hurt myself.

    I spent a lot of hours here on the forums, and watching the video's and participating where I could in the Live Training.

    In November I decided to make a real effort to do well in the PSO Open League. And I had a small success, with a min cash. Followed in December with a "Slightly Better" than min cash and my first Premiere League Ticket, which I even managed a min cash with.

    It was very exciting for me, and I capped off the excitement with a big win in a Bigger $5.50 toward the end of January! I did, and still do credit the PSO, and the trainers for both teaching and putting up with me.

    The best lesson I've learned so far is definately patience, and I learned that through the PSO Open League. That lesson is detailed in the blog post I am submitting for this application.

    For the most part my poker education comes right from the forum, live training and training videos right here on PSO. I've started listening to various poker podcasts, and while they are entertaining and educational, I still find that most of their information is at a much higher level than I am, and in the end, I can ask the questions I specificly have here, not to podcasts!

    Here's my Blog Post:

    Here's my Forum Entry:

    And here's my facebook link:

    Hope this is all in order, and I truly am excited for the opportunity to help promote, and represent the PSO as Member of the Month!

    Hi BandShooter!

    Nice story; it is one I think a lot of people on PSO have in common with you!

    It is very gratifying to hear that the forum and live training sessions have done so much to help you!

    All your links appear in order, but there is one final thing you must do to have a qualified application for this month. It is pretty simple though...

    All you still have to do is post the links to your blog and forum post here on your facebook, and you will be qualified for FEB!

    I will check back after I go play some live cards tonight, and if you've updated by then I will mark your app as "requirements met" and you will be in!

    If you have already posted the links on your facebook, then your wall is probably marked "private". Those links have to be view-able by all (so we can verify PSO promotion via facebook).

    As long as you help promote PSO by the end of FEB you will be qualified.

    See you!

      My bad. Forgot about the privacy, and didn't realize I had to post the forum post as well. Both issues should now be rectified!
