PSO

For those new to PSO or just dont get it, this league is about 2 things, points and money.
If you are just trying to get the $2.00 dollars for first place in one tourney and arent worried about points, well gl to you. $2.00 times six tourneys a day times 30-31 days? The real money is on  the leaderboard. $1500 for first and goes down to $3.00. Whitestar $50.00 for first and goes down. Go to pso home page to pso menu click league go to leaderboard. Read info on active players and qualified players and whitestar. Now that you understand what a leaderboard is and that this is a league not a one time tourney, you are ready to start gaining points.
Lets say the pso tourney has 1000 players. Lets assume 99 places are paid. Your goal would be top 99 right? Well the answer is yes, but in reallity to be fair you will get points if eliminated in 200th mabye even 250th! Now everyone starts out with 1500 points for the month. Check out you points on your profile. Are you active? Did you earn 20 fpp the previous month? Are you qualified? Did you play 5 pso tourneys? Can you play the pso warm ups to get a free $3.40 in tounament money? Even a whitestar can get paid for enough points on the leaderboard. The prizes are much higher if you made 20 fpp and played 5 or more pso tourneys though.
Strategy to get deep? This one can cause alot of confusion. Mtt strategy, cash game strategy, sit and go strategy, playmoney strategy, are some of the strategy's out there. Forget all that for one second. Now clear your mind. Ready? You will be most sucessfull in Pso tourneys and the leaderboard if you make it deep. I know what some of you are thinking. How do I avoid bad beats? I dont want to wait 3 hours to cash. I can't even limp because some person is all in everyhand. Well consider this.
Its the first hand of the tourney and you have jj on the bb. 3 people are all in. One raised to 100, 3 others pushed all in behind him. Now what? Pot odds say what? if i call I'll win a 6 k plus pot? Now before you hit call........... Think! If you lose this pot you go negative in points. Look at your pso history when you go out early in a tourney.  How many points negative were you? Is this worth it to your leaderboard status? Now if everyone thought about all this every tourney this league would be alot tougher.
Here is another thing to think about. You quicly fold every hand your not going to play. you have 800 left and get AJ iffsuit. blinds are 100 200 your under the gun. This is your best hand yet!!!!!! Do you push now with 500 people left in a tourney of 1000? Think about the numbers does it make sense? Could you have made your time go by slower so that there is only 300 left? Do you use your time wisely? Fold to any bet buttone pushed everytime? How can you go deeper in pso tourneys?
I hope that this info was helpfull to everyone. All that are new.... All that are veterans..... And the average player..... I am still learning. But that is what this league is all about right? Good Luck all.
