    Hi all
    I am new here, and gonna start of with some wining rigth away lol....

    no serious - what I am wondering about - been playing a number of PSO tourneys now ..
    and alwas there is a few players that dont sit out, but just let their time go by each and every hand ..

    99 % of the time this happens I just go all in on 7 2 ( extreme but to make my point ), or leave - and some other ( much fewer ) PSO tourneys where it doesnt happen, I play and am getting the hang of it being a new poker player.

    My main question is tho; why do people do this ? Later on in the tourneys ya sure, if thats your style or you need it cause you're low on chips, but right at the start already ?
    I dont think u need the clock at the start of a tourney ? or do you and do I just not know why ?

    To me this is ** irritating but hey .... maybe it's just me and part of the game lol
    I just noticed it happens more in PSO tournaments then elsewhere .. anyway it makes it no fun for me to really try and be serious about this tourney

    so: where do I go wrong and what do I miss ?

    thanks

    another thing - as we newbie here - I also did meet a LOT of real nice people, its overall a cool gang u guys got going here !

    thanks for having me ( if thats not over by now lol )

    and good luck to all, and feel free to kick my *** if I said some real stupid things here, luv learning

    Be safe all and have a great weekend,
    micky

          Hi mickyli and welcome aboard. Don't mind ssugs,he and I (and a few others as well) have a running competition to see who is the biggest smart-azz in the Forum and it's perpetual. umbup: For a real answer (before the thread dissolved into NHL playoff banter) check out the "Why Run the Clock Out" thread that I just bumped to this page. That should help clear it up for you.

                Hey mickyli, welcome to the pso.
                The clock issue is well covered in the forum. I suggest you use the search feature and throw in a couple keywords in the advanced search to find a number of threads on the matter.
                The reason you see it here right from the start, is that some players feel this is the best way to gain points in the league. It is not something that is advocated, and is actually considered bad etiquette, but it is technically not against the rules unless you ask someone to do it for you, or do it for someone else.
                I suggest looking over the scoring system for the pso, looking over some leaders stats, and then play your best situational poker, in order to do well. By situational, I mean, your position, your stack, your place in the field, how long until the bubble, etc.
                I'll be sending you a pm w/ some new player info soon.
                Until then, best o' luck!
                Dan

                      omg that thread had hockey talk?? wtf I skipped it cuz the clock debate is so /yawn BRB!
                      You might be a king or a little street sweeper, but sooner or later you'll dance with the reaper.

                        Hey Moxie, it looks to me like you might have planned to come in here and not add to the original post. I don't think bumping a different thread qualifies as adding to this one. Please explanain yourself or I will have to report you to the proper authority.
