PLO tables have been good, although the last few days have seen less fish on them for some reason. My favorite fish seem to have gone away, they seem to go away forever once they bust out. I guess a lot of players play with their full bankroll on the table.

Why not go 4 them ron ??? You got game m8 - i saw it last night when u won your $11 ticket to the PSO 1k added end of month tourney - 5 vpps a day is easy when u put your mind to it m8.
Hope u don't make it to the Premier league with less than 150vpps Ron.
Or you'll be ripping yourself off.
Where's the sense in that ?? B

I tried PLO high/low yesterday (first time playing it on cash table)
Played 1 table for 90 minutes at .05/.10 and another at .02/.05
Made $1.29 and 26.98 VPP's

So it's doable Ron

If you get your 150 VPP's, you'll have access to exclusive Team Pro training material. Added equity in playing lots of poker: you get to become better at poker.

I would have, but I imagine PSO Admin or Staff will be upping a sticky in the near future. Definitely looking forward to these collections being added. I am interested about whether or not Americans will be able to view any of the material, though, given the VPP requirements.

When admin showed me these earlier today, I pointed out that I can only see the ones for players with less than 20 vpps.
They say there will still be lots of them for us to see.
Eh..take what I can get.

Yeah, that seems unfair. It's not like these videos are novelties; there's a great deal to be learned from them, and it seems pretty arbitrary to refuse them to long-standing members of the community. It's even more dissatisfying that Americans will have restricted access considering that numerous videos that Americans can't access were recorded by US pros (e.g. the one Moneymaker currently has up). I'm certainly thrilled about the new material, being a Canadian with more than 150 VPP's, but it sort of feels like being the favourite puppy that gets more food and more attention while the other one whimpers and gets ignored. That imagery makes my eyes water.



I imagine that it's supposed to be a sort of rakeback, since the videos are coming from Stars, which benefits financially from us acquiring VPP's, and so Americans don't get access to the high-level material because they don't pay anymore, but there could be a substitute system implemented, like a quality post per month sort of thing (150 quality posts = 150 VPP substitute).
