You need to pass the core quizz first. At that point, you'll get a ticket to the PSO League games. These can be found on the Tournament, Private tab from the main page. Just one thing, be sure you are using PokerStars dot com and not PokerStars dot net. You cannot access the school from the net program.

Sometimes the system is a little slow awarding the tickets. If you passed the core test, contact PokerStars Support from the main page if you don't have the ticket after a full day. I would also contact the Poker School Staff using the contact button too.

And remember, you have a full month to move upward. Good luck and welcome to the site.

Is the ticket good for the month or do you have to take the quiz each day to get a new ticket?

p.s. if you're talking about the 20 you need to be "active" in pso, its vpp's not fpp's. you get fpp's when u earn vpp's. i gotta go pp now.

FPPS

WORTHLESS!!! GET THAT THROUGH YOUR HEAD!!!! If you get a thousand of these and zero vpps, you will still be ineligible.


VPPS

These are earned playing cash games. Look for the number after the + symble on the tournaments, including sit and go games. That number is the fee and earns vpps. For example, a $1.00 + .10 game earns 0.55 vpps

In ring games, vpps are earned via the rake, which starts at 20-cent pots. Most important, you earn vpps by folding your hand. Do not sit out, that gets you nothing. There is a difference.




As you can tell, this really is a sore topic to the old hedgehog. Why? Well, one month I managed to earn 23 FPPS and thought I would become active. Guess who was a white star the following month? Don't let it happen to you.
