  • How many of you are turning profits since you joined PSO!

    Okay Posse,

    I know that in speaking with alot of you and reading your posts you are turning your game around! I have started this thread because I want you to tell us your accomplishments and what the impact of PSO has been on your game if any!
    I am bragging about PSO not because I am a live trainer for them but because I honestly beleive you are getting better due to your work ethic! So go back to when you started in PSO and look in poker pro labs or official poker rankings etc and see how you have done.
    If you have not improved ask yourself why? There are many here I know will post that they are improving and I know why? Becasue they are watching free videos of top Pokerstars Pros! Because they are coming to free training classes and mostly because they are not being stubborn and continuing to play the old style that kept them losing! They know that guys like Chris Moneymaker and Kidd Poker and Spavegravy and Pius Heinz are winning players becasue the find their leaks............ suck it up and admit they played like shyte and fix them!
    So who is gonna start?

    Gidee Up!

    More of a cash game guy really but the school has helped me a tonne.

    I keep saying it but xflixx's videos are excellent and have helped me a great deal.
    There's not a lot out there for people looking to grind from the bottom and these are free.

    TheLangolier's videos are also excellent. I watched the HEM tutorial recently which was great because I really was struggling with it a little. I'm also looking forward to watching combinatorics but not until I get a little better equipped with the concepts I've learned so far.

    Since starting my blog here I've really focused on improving my game and while PSO is not the only place I go it is probably the site I visit the most.

    I beat 2NL for 9.13bb/100 hands

    I've moved up to 5NL and am currently beating it for 7.76bb/100 hands

    Not great results but I can feel myself becoming a stronger player everyday and it wouldn't be happening if it wasn't for the help of you guys.

      Well, I guess this counts as I've got a small bankroll of around $8 made from playing league freerolls, and haven't lost it all yet playing in micro tourneys, I've cashed in a few of them. So thats definitely profit, and I would not have made it without the help of this site. I haven't deposited any other money into my account. Its a very long way to go until im on the same level as Kid Poker, Heinz and the rest, but i'm on the way there!

        my numbers have gone up a good bit solely due to PSO.
        Was about to get my online tournament ROI back in the black, then black friday hit (online cash games ROI IS positive).

        Learned many things since then that I'm gladly waiting to use, as soon as the US players are back.

            I deposited $20 last December mostly to be able to get the VPP's necessary to qualify for the prizes in the PSO skill league.

            Made a few bucks in the league, took 3rd in an FPP tourney and made a nice little bit doing the 100 games of .25/45 sng's challenge a few months back.

            I've had to withdraw twice to put gas in the car, so this is the 3rd time I am grinding that tired, old $20 back up.

            So yes, some profit and a lot of that is due to the PSO, for sure.

              I have been winning more often than ever. My bankroll has not dropped below what I deposited in october. I have stuck to playing micros and I know I can win them. I have a huge problem when I play, I can build my bankroll up for a few days then it drops back down fast. The reason this is happening is I just can't fold when I know I'm beat. I call people to see if I read there cards right and boom knocked out. I agree 100% pso has raised the bar for me as I no longer deposit weekly. I deposited $30 early October and I have played over 500 $0.25 sit and go and I'm up $6. The highest I been is around $45. I have days were u will find it impossible to take a single chip off me these are my good days. There are days I play and ill jump into a game some guy shoves 1st hand I call with air. I can do this for 20 straight games and I just can't help my self. This is a huge leak that I know if fixed I can build a fast bankroll. I don't think anyone can help this part off my game as this is down to my own stupid play. If anyone has any advice for this stupidity then please please guide me in the right direction. Also I would like to thank you as your cowboy challenge was a huge step for me. This made me see the sense in bankroll management and why it should be applied. You have saved me a lot off Friday night deposits.umbup:

                  I'm that rare bird that did better before I found PS Online. Now before you start the flame wars, let me explain. I was a super nit, and had a very good rating on OPR, but I didn't have a clue. I have expanded my game a lot since then, and the experimenting has messed up the stats bigtime. I don't have a problem with that, I'm learning all the time. While I'm experimenting with new ideas, my stats take a beating. That's A-OK with me, as long as I'm learning my game is getting better. umbup:umbup:umbup:

                      Quick summary. Registered for PSO: End of July 2011 (Overall Rating 62%) August Stats: ................................ROI -85% ..........ITM 17% September Stats: ........................ROI 78% ............ITM 26% October Stats: ..............................ROI 44% ............ITM 25% November Stats: .........................ROI 20%............ ITM 21% Overall rating now at 92%..........ROI 27%.............ITM 22% I've spent the first 6 months of my time here just drilling the ABC poker game into my head. I have no doubt that if it wasn't for this site I wouldn't have a positive ROI. I had a chat with a mate of mine down at the local poker club and he said that I've learnt in just a few short months what it took him a couple of years to learn in live play. Raiser umbup:

                          As one who has "rebuilt" my game a couple of times, let me assure you that this is quite normal. Before finding PSO in it early days I was winning in home games but not in the fledgling online world. After learning a bit on PSO I nitted up and quit losing online $ but lost interest in the game as it became boring. Gone was the fun aspect of poker. Then, within the PSO boundaries and their virtual bankroll at that time, I started to become a student of the game. Learning controlled aggression was not easy and I became quite discouraged. When I finally learned the lesson that the results of a single hand don't matter but its the decision process that really counts my results turned around. As a recreational player, poker has financed a few trips and some toys along the way so I have met most of my poker goals due to PSO and the resources they made available was the major contributor. So Joy, I wish you continued growth and much success.

                            So I discovered PSO and Nanonoko(Randy Lew) late January. Learned about Nanonoko's play style, watched him play a lot, watched PSO live training videos, and spent a lot of time on the PSO forums. Also played the skill league for a month and doubled my small bankroll! At that point I went and played close to 100,000 hands total at 2NL and 5NL using what I learned. You can see on the graph when I hit the cash tables after receiving my small payout from the skill league, right around the beginning of march. I feel like I have improved so much after joining the PSO. I also think I would have taken my game even further had I not been abruptly cut off of the path I was on. Anyways, thanks PSO!!!

                              First of all: PSO helped me a lot with my game. I started my PS account in 2006, but wasn't really into the game. Just got back in mid 2010 and discovered PSO shortly after. My first deposit was somewhat around 70$ and it went up and down. Since one month now I really am on a great upswing. xflixx lessons about 6max cash games are phenomanol and helped me hugely. I really started winning on 2NL, tried 3 shots on 5NL and finally broke threw. Up to nearly 190$. Additionally to that you guys helped me very much with my tournament game. I overplayed cards throughout early stages of tournament, didn't understand stack sizes really good and got lucky sometimes and won some 45man 1$. But actually I definitely had a negative ROI. That also changed to your SnG & MTT lessons. I won 3 tickets to the 10th Anniverssary Final and recently started playing 90man 2.5$ SnGs. Out of the 5 I cashed twice and won the last one I played. umbup: So I really have to say thanks to all the teachers, the support in the hand analysis forum and the community! umbup:
