Getting Serious about the League


Earning Respect

By: Chance Stone @ 14:39 (EST) / 292 / Comment ( 3 )

I didn't realize the level of competition with the PSO League until recently. I was in a situation where I bluffed a player that was ranked a lot higher than me. He then went on a 10 minute tantrum of how he was so much better than me. If he had known I was ranked so low, he would have called the all in. Blah, blah, blah.

Up until recently, I had been using the League as a science lab of sorts. That is to say, I was honing in on other skills, like bluffing. And practicing bluff, hijacks and loose play here. Of course, that meant earlier exits in tournaments.

Also, I've been playing real money tournaments and been focusing my best poker play there. Using what I practiced from the PSO league in real money tourneys. It's worked out pretty well as I grew $10 to over $150 in a few weeks.

I digress.

I am now going to start playing the PSO League more like I would play in real money tourneys. I don't know why it bothered me so much when that other player was calling out my poker skills, but it did. So now I'm going to play as hard as I can to move up the leaderboard. It already started 3 tourneys ago when I finished 100 out of 1231 (the same tourney where Mr. Know-it-all got busted by me).

I want respect, and in the great words of Tony Soprano, "those that want respect, earn respect." So PSO League, here I come.
