        Looking forward to playing these as always.

        Hope we can attract some newer PSO members - there is a dedicated core that turn out regularly but I am surprised that the numbers have not risen much overall. I think these are among the best training games available for small fields in all the variants of poker and I would like to see us getting into three figures for the tournament entries.

        Maybe a bit more promotion could be done. I am hearing PSO mentioned a lot - on the webcasts for EPT for example -and maybe these series just need a little boost from some wider advertising - though the trainers do a good job of mentioning them regularly in Live Training.

        Good luck all

                      Glad to be back

                      I'm glad to be back took 6 mths off as I needed a break, but deposited $25 so I could be part of the all in shootout (which netted me $4) and allowed me to play in the derby as I lost most of my bankroll chasing Chromestar and the 30 fpp requirement for the shootout. It's been a good run for me (except the HU shootout lol) and have managed 5 straight top 3 finishes, which is quite an honor considering how good you guys are at poker. I managed to qualify for the premier league this month as well so I'm pretty excited about poker again. Have a great day and looking forward to some more games in the derby.
