  • 15037 played this month with one day to go all time new pso high

    WOW!!! No wonder it takes for ever for a tourney. Thats a lot of folks, which is a good thing. We still got today as well. I was looking back at the monthly totals. We are growing fast rigth. Best set some more plates at the table. Bleep that better get some more tables. Hope the PSO is ready, if not it is going to get ugly around here fast.

    Bleep I hope I posted this in the rigth forum, so many of those as well. That two is a good thing. Keep it all in the correct sections. No wonder a lot of the new players are lost. Information over load. We may need a class just on how to get around the site for the new players.

    Like for example to your top left you will see the search the forum key. If you do that you will get your answer to your Q and A's about this site. If your answer is not there PM( if you know how) !!!111Dan the new members cordinator. If you do not know how to PM then repeat step one.lol

    I read some where that the site is moving slower on Sundays do to traffic. Well GL to all and welcome all the new folks. Is Poker Stars a traded company. If it is I need to buy some stock lol With growth like this man SHOW ME THE MONEY!!!!!!

    The one change I see coming to the Skill League sooner rather than later is the removal of the 2000 entries per tourney cap. I'm afraid it's going to be inevitable. But that's also a good thing for PSO and PStars and since they seem to like to pour their earnings into more and more promotions for us I guess it's also a good thing for us. So rock on. umbup:

            Mr Bruno you are the best...to bad it seems you will never understand! The "donk" players you complain about and berate at the tables are the very thing supporting your poker career.

            Its very a very simple concept so pay close attention as this advice is free and it will be my one and only effort to ever help you. I'm putting this in caps to try and get your attention.

            "IF YOU ARE NOT GETTING DONKED OR SUFFERING BAD BEATS YOU ARE NOT PLAYING GOOD POKER AND WILL NEVER BE A SUCCESSFUL PLAYER"

            Constantly whining and complaining in chat even when losing as an underdog is pointless and a waste of energy. Maybe one day they will stop dealing that river but till then THE MORE DONKS THE BETTER!! Showing class at the tables and in the face of a bad beat is a question of character not poker skills so I can't help anyone there. you either have it or you don't. But unlike the river it is something you can control.

            I'm pretty sure Bruno will never change or grow up but at least I can say I tried to help. To all the the newbies to PSO good luck and feel free to shove ATC!! Best of luck to all next month!

              WELL Mr. BAD AZZ POKER PLAYER!! Hello!!! This is Poker School , folks are still learning or just learning. They all are not gifted such as yourself rigth from birth I am sure. We all started somewhere. I can not beleave you can't see this? The donks are the ones that help Good Poker players build their stacks or pay their BIlls. If you don't like the new players here , then move rigth along. Thats the point of this place is to teach new players and help other players get better.

              I do understand that some are here just for Fun and thats ok to. If you are as good as a Player as you say you are. You would not whine about them, you would adjust your game and deal with it. I do not think your bite is as hard as your bark. Your skills on tells need work! THEY ARE GIVING YOU WHAT TO DO IN CAPS CAN YOU NOT HEAR OR SEE THAT HELLLLLLOOOO!!!!

              I know you do not have table manors to be rail birding a PS Pro like a 5 year old as he was playing. No disrespect to 5 year olds. I was trying to tell you to calm down and let the man play as I to was at the table. You were throwing around the PSO name and joining your home game please please. Making your self and the PSO look like a azz. When I told you to calm down, you called me a Douche. Makes me think you to need to be here, you have a lot to learn about life and Poker.

              With that said, If your allowed here then anyone is!! Get my Point rail DONK!!!!!

                    Perhaps the old hedgehog has missed something. Isn't it a good thing having donkeys in a game? These are the players that a skilled player should exploit. Yes, you'll suffer the occassional bad beat and/or suckout, but that is the price of playing a game of chance. If pocket aces are suppose to win 85 of every 100 hands, conversely, it means you will lose 15 times.

                    The same with the donkeys. As a skillfull player, you should win by the same percentage, and you should lose too. The trick is to exploit those donkeys. Take the most chips when they play ATC, while you play according to the odds. They exist in all games and you want to find these players and take their money whenever you can.

                    If I had a choice, I want to play the fools. Against them, I have an excellent chance. Put me on a table with all good players and two things will happen. First, the quality of play will improve. Second, like a gunfighter, only the best will prevail if luck doesn't favor the weak. Even a skillfull player doesn't discount the luck factor, but he relies on his skills.

                    Time you stop complaining about the one, and apply the other. Do that and I'm certain the top ten will see your name a lot more.

                      the chicken or the egg vs the donk or the skill player

                      my theory mr. bruno is that everybody was a donk one time at their early online career, including yourself..that being said, some donks become better skill players as time go by and some stay donks for a long period of time until their game improves..i understand that donk play upsets alot of people, including myself,but donk play also allow a skill player to double up and gain some chips..so in reality we need donks in the pso league to allow some of the better players to flourish and that is just my opinon on the subject, you might not like it but respect it..see ya around the tables..

                        You guys are right about the donks, but I am seriously disproportionately victimized.... I cannot tell you how often I lose on hands I am an 80-90% favorite on.... once I lost two hands back to back where I was better than 90% favored on BOTH.... an occasional bad beat is one thing but eh... something just isn't Kosher.

                        Oh well... all I can do now is hope for a hot streak the rest of the day.

                            Any PP is about a 4-point favorite against somebody with two overcards. Though ace-king is a strong hand, it still needed to pair if it were to win. A 4-point advantage isn't much, and a lot of times, you do pair the higher card. Conversely, there are enough times when that favored hand will win, and in the instance you described, it did. Was calling the wrong call? No, not with the hand you had, but take the loss graciously.

                              My season is pretty much over.

                              I botched the last two tournaments. I figured I would either need to get really hot or settle for $50 so I called a flush-draw on JK suited and hit the Ace of hearts on the turn only for this guy with trip 4's to hit a full boat on the river... so that's a good 30 points negative today, so I have no choice but to stop because I can't afford to lose any more points.

                              Oh well... there is always next month.
