Community News - April 2014

By: flophitter @ 14:16 (EDT) / 286 / Comment ( 0 )

Spring is in the air, Easter is just around the corner and new life and natural growth is all around us. So it's a perfect time to grow your poker skills by looking at new ways of approaching familiar situations. Welcome to the April edition of Community News, where we preview hot happenings this month in PSO - the home of improving poker players!


Yes, it's that time of the year again - The 2014 Spring Championship of Online Poker (SCOOP) runs from April 6-21, with a huge guaranteed prize pool across 40 events. Each tournament has a low and high buy-in, which makes it the ultimate online series for every type of player. And there are freerolls running too, so everyone can participate.

And what better way to prepare for this massive series than lessons from PokerStars Pro Randy Lew? He takes you through his play in last year's Main Event, and you can ask him questions via Twitter or in the forum. You'll find the first video here.


Then our popular Bankroll Builder promotion is just right for you. We take you through a short series of learning tasks and on the successful completion of each, we award you with $2 cash to take to the 1c/2c cash game tables in PokerStars. You can earn $8 from Bankroll Builder and, using your new-found skills, there's no limit on how far you can make that grow. You can find out more on this page and get started today!


Upcoming classes from our crack team of Live Trainers this month include "Range Analysis Workbook", "The Cash Clash" and "Sunday Special". A Flash update in late Feb/early March distrupted the normally smooth running of Live Training, but technical issues were soon resolved and all is well again. To see the full class listings and to find out how to attend, just visit this page.


To mark its third birthday on April 13th, the prizepool of the $10+1 Sunday Storm tournament has been more than trebled from its usual $300k to an incredible $1 Million guaranteed! And you can satellite your way to a seat in this massive event from as little as $0.10.

Get all the info here, including a link to some tips on surviving a big tournament field from Team PokerStars Online’s Mickey ‘mement_mori’ Petersen. Mickey is one of Denmark’s most successful online tournament players with over $500,000 in winnings from SCOOP alone!

Best of luck!



We can't release details just yet so keep an eye on our Promotions Page regularly for announcements.



Congratulations to our member 'sasha666xh' from Serbia who knocked our trainer out of the bounty tournament and won $50!



'voha88' from Belarus took down the top prize of $5,000 in the Premier League last month, followed by compatriot 'lavr82' who earned $3,350. In third place was 'NL_sPaTti' of Ukraine with $2,500.

The Open League winner was 'GeLCH' from Russia who won $1,500, in second came 'Alehan124' of Ukraine who took $1,000 , and in third spot was 'hase9999' of Germany with $750.

Well done to those players and to all who cashed in the March leagues. If you're not already participating, read up on how the leagues work here, and maybe your name will be featured next month!



Cool new poker videos will be uploaded to our YouTube channel this month so keep an eye out for those, but meantime why not explore the existing content?



Fellow members and staffers that make up the PSO Community welcome your thoughts and comments. You can write a thoughtful blog, drop a comment on Twitter or Facebook, start or join a discussion in the Forum, ask questions during Live Training and of course chat at the tables while playing.

Have a great April, and wishing you success in all your planned poker endeavours!
