  • live training question

    Hi all I have noticed most of the live training is 150vpp level at the moment is there some free ones soon, have I got it wrong about 150vpps thinking, can I still view as a guest?

    I've looked at the next two weeks and only two out of ten each week require 150+VPPs - (some others do need the 20+VPPs).

    20% is not 'most' - but I understand your concern - as far as I know you need them to both participate or view, but I would wait for the official mods to confirm that.

    Sunday Live Training this evening has no VPP restrictions and there are cash and play money games to take part in - highly recommend you come along and try your skills against your PSO forum friends.

    Good luck

          Hi there lucflush, Keep an eye on the Live Training Calender as the are many 6-max sessions happening from week to week. I didn't come across any 6-max SnG's in the video library but I'll ask around further for you. Here is one video I found that might be of interest to you. It's a 6-max 2NL cash game member review of 'Dr.Kauffer''s Hope this helps! Raiser umbup:

            Hi all,

            Most of the trainings are unrestricted, not 150+ restricted, like Ed suggests look at the calendar again... on any given week you'll typically find at least half have 0 vpp restriction, while others carry 20+ or 150+.

            The VPP restrictions are only for "Participants" at this time (people who can type in the chat box). Currently there is no restriction to "view" any class (viewers can still see and hear everything). So 100% of classes are accessible to all PSO members regardless of their current VPP level.

            There is a lot of 6-max cash game coaching and 9-man SNG coaching, but no 6-man SNG coaching specifically.

            Thanks,
            Dave

                  Is all Live Training free? I'm wondering what the 150FPP/VPP and 20FPP/VPP icons in the Live Training Calendar actually mean. It just means I need to have that amount of VPP in the previous month and it wont cost me any FPP right?

                    Hey guys,

                    Daft question, but does anyone know of any problems viewing training sessions on an Android tablet? Haven't watched one yet and its about time I did, but currently only have it on my tab, so any known issues would be nice knowing about!

                      Hi Steam,

                      That's correct, those are simply requirement levels to enter as a participant (be able to type in chat). Anyone can enter as a viewer (can still see and hear everything, just not type in chat). If you've earned the requisite level last month, or this month, it's good (if you just earned it, may take the system up to 48 hours to update your status).

                      Attending the trainings are free and no FPP's are ever deducted from your account.

                      Thanks,

                        I have no idea, haven't heard of anyone even trying this, but give it a shot!

                          Hi Steamtroll. Neither the live training or the videos cost any VPPs to attend or view. For the live training anybody can watch while they are being recorded. If you do not have the required VPPs the previous month or the current month you will not be able to ask questions or comment. The recorded videos that have restrictions are only available to those who have earned the required VPPs the previous month or the current month.

                          Hope this clears things up

                            Well no such luck, looks like the same problem that's been afflicting the hand replayer on my tab. Emailed support, hopefully they know something about it.
