skill league or last longer bets league?!

By: nemad78 @ 02:42 (EDT) / 300 / Comment ( 3 )
i'm seriously thinking to quit PSO premier league... when there was over 100.000 players in open skill league i could understand buying time and slowing tables, you just needed to see all the bad players out of tournament so you could achieve something...

but now, when only 1.500 best players are competing it is hard to understand such play... only skill needed here is to play as slow as possible and survive... it all reminds of last longer bets... just don't see point in that...

i was especially surprised to see that time for folding the hand (before you start to use bank) is increased instead to be reduced to lets say 5 seconds... blind structure is also intersting...

although i agree patience is a skill needed in poker i deeply believe that it is not essential skill... for those who lack patience and want to practise it a bit this is the place...

so, like i wrote in title - lets call this league with it's real name - last longer bets league...

btw i'd really like to hear opinions on this subject and it would be really nice if someone from PSO could say their view of this..
