    Shark, Flabo, langolier, Tazz, et el,

    Thank you so much for all the help and information.

    Shark,
    Thank you for the personal insight, I surely do appreciate it.

    Flabo,

    When I first joined PSO, I did not play the leagues or read or post in the forums. I spent most of my time consuming the huge library of knowledge here from the many professionals and top players here, who have been willing to share their knowledge with those interested in growing their game. I spend 1/4 to a 1/3 of my time consuming information. Each time I play (and it's still not very good), I get better, because I always learn something. Making the connection with the knowledge I've consummed and the reality of my play, always leaves me in self analysis.

    I couldn't say that 7 months ago. When I got knocked out of a game by a loose player with a lucky suckout, or when I was sucked into a trap by an all in with a hidden set, I just fummed and pissed and moaned about the donkey and my bad luck. I didn't go back and analyze what I had done and what I could have done differently. The league and this forum, coupled with my ever growing knowledge of the game, has changed that. Everything is a lesson now and I am greatful for the 24/7 classroom, and the player/teachers in it.

    Instead of just going to class to go to class, I am going to class to learn and grow and excell. That little change has been a big change AND my game is SLOWLY improving, BUT my outlook and attitude are RAPIDLY improving and I am enjoying every aspect of the game now.

    Marginal players, (donkeys as we like to call them) are the best thing that can happen to me because they teach me what I need to know. Learning how to both avoid getting donked by them while exploiting them, is paramount to becoming successful at this endeavor. God bless the donks....

    I am currently scouting the stock yard pens (ring tables) for lambs to add to my sheep (wool shearing) ranch (home game)

    There are regular players who deposit $100-$200 every week and play for fun as their form of entertainment. Some people golf, some people ski, some people ride their ATVs in the desert. Whatever they spend their entertainment dollars on...it's just that...entertainment. Same is true with weekend Sheep/fish/lambs/donkeys...call them what you want. It's their form of entertainment and it's what they spend their entertainment dollars on.

    Like the old poker proverb goes.... If you don't know who the lamb at the table is....IT'S YOU.

    I think I've made my point so I won't belabor it, only to say this...if you cry about the donkeys beating you....your missing the point of the game... Don't be mad at the Donkeys for beating you....Be mad at yourself for letting them.

    The General

      In Feb I played 35 League tourneys,12 where minus points and I finish in 39th place. So I think that
      the top 100 can be made in under 30 tounreys with good play and some luck.

                If one repeats a lie enough it becomes the truth... Please show me where, exactly, I have belittled anyone. I wish you all would get in your circle and try to jerk people in one direction. First I'm accused of sitting out and not playing enough... now I play too much??
                But, I am very appreciative that people single me out. It seems this publicity has caused players with whom I have never tabled to bet into me. Thanks for that...

                Im just sayin...

                    new to all this

                    Hello all I am new to all this and have only started on PSO this month. Started out bad first 3 or 4 tourneys was down to around 1450ish then caught on to and learned a few things got back up to over 1500 yah. But here is my question (sorry it has nothing to do with what you are all talking about but have seen alot of you in tourneys)
                    ok yes my question
                    does it make that much of a difference to enter all tourney's even if I am not going to play and sit them out? it seems if you enter and sit out you will finish in the 400 to 500 range, do you get positive points for this? I have been cruising the tables and noticed even one of the moderators is in tourney but sitting out and as of right now he is in the 400's
                    IS IT WORTH IT TO SIT OUT?
                    Call me crazy but if you are going to enter and sit out don't play because when 4 out of 9 people at table are sitting it makes it more difficult to actually LEARN and try to actually improve.
                    Thanks for any imput and sorry for putting this in your space was unsure of how this works

I was also fortunate enough to meet the vent people there and since then my game has improved dramatically. I still have a lot to learn but PSO has definately helped. Is there a lot of bad play there? Sure, same as anywhere. I believe thats a good thing because if everyone played perfect poker it would be a lot harder to make any money. Well thats my two cents, see ya out there.
                      I agree. I have heard people say that there are too many 'bad players' in PSO, but I'd say take a look at the micro MTT's in general and that is going to be the case.

                      PSO gives me a chance to hone my skills with no financial investment, has definitely taught me patience, and gives me an opportunity to learn to read players over a longer period of time - unlike random MTT's I can see if the notes I make are true and how to hone my table reading skills.

                      And like other MTT's, the deeper you go into a PSO tourney, the better the players you're up against.

                      I deposit as well, and play SNG's and just won a satellite into the 1/4 million (my first time in that one), but PSO has really helped my skill level. I guess its all in how you approach it here.
