Hi everyone, we have just launched the new MTT Course. At the same time we are running a promotion this week called "Swarm the Storm".

We want to help send as many PSO members as possible to the PokerStars Sunday Storm this weekend on Sunday 27th March at 15.30 ET.

We have set up 5 exclusive PSO member satellites to the Sunday Storm where we have added 10 seats to each satellite. The buyin for the satellites is $1.10 PLUS the ticket that will be awarded when you pass the MTT Quiz.

We hope you take the time to look over all the lessons and then take and pass the quiz so that you will be eligible to participate in the "Swarm the Storm" satellites which can be found in the PokerStars client under the tourney and private tabs.

Good luck to everyone and let's see if we can help a PSO member take down the best $11 tournament ever offered online.


Good Luck
PSO STAFF

Very nice quiz Staff. Especially loved the WSOP main event scenario.

I didn't see this addressed in the article, so I'll ask here.

Do players have the option to take the T$$, as they do in the PSO Monthly satellites?

I ask because my work schedule prevents me from playing most weekend tournaments. So I play the satellites for the cash. If unregistering from the Storm gives me cash, I'll find time today to take the quiz. Otherwise, I'll just take it whenever it's convenient for me.

I'm pretty sure the answer is yes on the T$$, would just like clarification.

YES


Only time you can not take T$ is will say so on the upper right box of the Sat as some sats require you to play the next round but i would say 95%+ will allow T$ to be collected

I need to find a picture of Mr. Scott so I can input it every time I wish to say that.
Thank you Bart Scott for a great sound bite.

Thanks, that's what I was thinking.

I do know that some sats give tickets instead of cash. Tickets are pretty much worthless for me in this case, so I wanted to be sure.

What? No freerolling into the game? No incentive for the test.

I love that there are PSO Skill League specific questions.

Holding monsters at the bubble in Skill League? foldfoldfoldfold

i remember that question and it couldn't of been more wrong
you're holding AA with 145 players left (144 for ITM) and over 8k in chips so you should fold????????

everyone here knows that the odds of you being #145 here are slim to none for surely someone with a shorter stack is also going to be out on this hand

the correct answer was stall call stall push all but a few so you can stall some more

T$ is what you end up with if you win a seat into a tourney and un-register from it. It can then be used to buy-in to any other tourneys. It shows up in the bottom left of the cashier window.

T$ is what you get if you unregister from a tourney you won a seat into.
Example ....

paid $2.20 to a S&G 6 seats awarded you finish top 6 win seat to $11.00 tourney. UNREGISTER and you now have T$11.00 , which can only be used to enter tourneys.
