PSO " from darkness into light "

By: wizardscot @ 05:00 (EST) / 248 / Comment ( 0 )


i first began playing poker about 18 months ago on the facebook site " zynga " , which is a play chips site in which you proceed up the rankings according to your results. After spending many hours, weeks and months playing there i,d accumulated a few million chips and thought i was ready to step up a level to the REAL MONEY game !!! so i registered with a couple of online sites and my original optimism was slowly replaced with a diminishing bankroll !!! I had a few upswings , won a satellite tourney which gave me a seat into WCOOP { 41 } last year , but only lasted about 90 minutes into what became a 19 hour marathon !!!  I slowly realised that style/method of play was only going in 1 direction >>>DOWN !!!!  I didn,t much fancy living in a cardboard box !! especially with our winters in SCOTLAND so deceided that i needed HELP with my game. I noticed the PSO site on POKERSTARS so checked it out. Read the basics, adopted the basic principles and passed the core quiz.. Last month { my 1st. } i had a few decent results and noticed a DEFINATE improvement in my game ! Accumulated over 1650 points. The improvements carried over to my play on the tourneys and sng on the cash games, more cash-outs, final tables etc. . This month i,m of to a good start on the PSO league and last night i WON my 1st, League tourney  YEEHA . Things can only get better as i now have some good basic game play strategy and feel as if my game has moved from "darkness into light " ;~) thanks to the PSO . cheers ALLISTAIR
