      Isn't PSO as a whole a great idea? I say yes absolutely. The idea that we can earn free money while improving our game is phenominal. Kudos to whoever invented the freeroll. Mad credit to the person or persons who thought of an entire poker league. Props to the people who thought of a fee poker league with chances to win real money. The Leaderboard idea is brilliant. How great is it to reward players who make it into the mon:lol: ey in tournaments.
      Today was an interesting day for me. My first PSO tourney was at 7am my time. There was less than 900 players. I busted out in the high 600's. I had QQ other guy AA. I played the 10 am tourney and made it to the final table as a short stack. I double a few times and got u to about 468 thousand. 4 players are left. I have AK clubs a player with 150 thousand and (aj of hearts) moves all in, blinds are 10 k 20 k, I reraise to isolate him to the total of 468 thousand, the player to my right is the last one to act with a stack of about 600 thousand. He takes no time at all and calls 468 thousand which  leaves him about 132 or so with (qj of diamonds). Now a jack comes aj hearts wins main pot. Qj of diamonds wins side pot. I am eliminated:-? .
     Now I know what some of you are thinking. I told myself just stick to the facts and try to keep your opinion to yourself. I am not going into rank, reasoning, or unluckyness it just happened. Thats poker.:oops: :!:
     The 12pm pso tourney i got 212th. All in all 1 bad -17 points 1 good points to be determined for 4th, and one 212 which was about 17 percent so probably some points......
     Now I have an interesting point. Why would I get less points when my rank gets higher. 9 people make the same final table and the people that get 5th -9th get more points thatn me? I got 4th! I realize that this is the way the league is made. However May I suggest If someone who has 1800 points gets 99th place and someone who has 1495 points gets 99th place wouldnt it be more fair if they got creditied the exact same amount of:-P :-P points? It can be a little frustrating to play your best and get 10 or 20 points. In the beginning of the month we all got 30-40's for placing in the money. We even got points for placing close within a hundred or so of the money. 
     I do realize that if everyone got equal points for placing points would be in the 2000's to 3000's. Now even though that may be..... Who cares? The best for the month points always equal. No percentage of points based on previous ranking....... I would love to hear some or all of your opinions on this matter. Please tell me if there is any chance of ammending this, or changing the points, or is it set in stone?
     As always thank you for reading. Any thoughts would be much appreciated. :mrgreen:
