Hi all

Even though I am rather adult in age (58), I have just 'discovered' on-line hold-em within the last year.
I am looking to make the leap to (very small) real money games, but i am also honing skills to attempt to get the nerve to get into some of the free 'live' games going on in the Atlanta area. I am just terrified of embarrassing myself as I have never played a 'live' hold-em game in my life.
Am I being to intimidated by the experience? Anyone have experience with their own local free tournament / sit-and-go's?

Welcome to the pso and the forum!
No reason to be too intimidated...we all have to learn sometime. What better way than a freeroll?

You'll find a lot of great people here who are willing to answer any questions and provide insight in any way they can, so don't hesitate to ask any questions you may have.

Have you looked through all the info in the tabs at the top? The live training, courses, library, blogs etc. are full of good stuff so take the time to look through them.
The league tab explains the scoring and leaderboard. Be sure to look at all the red links there for more in-depth explanations.

If you wish to play with some other new members this weekend, please see the thread I have in the new members forum...Homegames for new members-answer questions live.

I will send you a pm in a couple days.
Take care and best o' luck!

Welcome from a fellow Georgian Brunswick here.

As Dan said, a lot of great people here, so feel comfortable and ask questions.

First, remember that everyone that is playing the game is learning on some level, so don't let experience or lack of run you off from a great game, and social environment.

Best of luck. See you around soon.
