New to PokerStars a couple of months ago and I have gone a long way =)
Send PM

Hi everyone!

it has been 2 months now since i started playing poker online. I have played before about a year ago with my friends but I kept losing so I wanted to learn more about the game and WIN!. So one day on TV i saw a PokerStars advertisement with Nadal playing poker on his phone so I thought if he can play poker well then so can I! And so I began my journey to become a decent player buy joining PokerStars. I didn't know about any promotions until a month after playing on Stars.

So the first month I started playing on pokerstars was actually horrible for me. I played the freeroll Pokerschool league and I always busted out close to the beginning of the tournaments going all-ins with A 10, A J and getting beaten with pocket pairs or better. That is when i discovered the pokerschool promotion after browsing through the game app under the tab "pokerschool". I went to the website, logged in, and browsed though the pokerschool site. That is when I read about the pokerschool promotion. It teaches new players techniques and essential information to become a successful player and it also gives you a $2 free up to 8 to test out your knowledge at the tables. It requires you pass certain course tests and to attend live trainings which I thought was very informative.

After earning the $8 from completing the promotion, I felt like I changed into a completely new person. I played at a couple of tables and increased my bankroll by 2 which was a great feeling. But I didn't play cash games all the time... I tried the pokerschool league freeroll again and see how I would do. And to my surprise I lasted much longer and even past the bubble stage a couple of times! And that is when I started to compete on the PSO leaderboard trying to aim for top 2000. The month of February on PokerStars changed my poker skills and also the way I look at poker. And for that I thank you PokerStars!
