tripped in the doorway by own mistakes and a realy bad timing to get a cold streak!! i managed to end up 528 and i am facing another month of clock running and facing idiots who where willing to help me sink even deeper. 12 tourneys in the last 2 weeks in wich i couldn't win a single top hand and get kicked of by the know suckout dudes.

but is it better in the premier reading al the news about cheat and collusion??

well lets hope next month i can just play easy and make it in the premier

Well the chickens haven't hatched yet so no need to not count them quite so early.

By that I mean the Premier tickets have yet to be issued.

528th could still possibly squeak you into the premier league, only 28/527 or 5.31% of those above you need to have missed the required 20+VPPs, to give you a spot.

Good luck either way for October

I admire your nerves! Crossing my fingers for you to still make it to the first!

Personally, I gave up on the OSL bingo play, it was driving me more than nuts. Just can't stand that poker hell on earth.

Instead, I decided to try the qualifier league. I found it very playable and finished 89th

Just thought I'd let you know - the qualifier is way more fun to play in comparison to the PSO.

Good luck at the tables!

I would E-mail support regularly asking for clarification, but I would also start off playing in the Open League tournaments, which you can play in either way, for points if that is where you should be or for none if you get the premier ticket. Then you won't lose a head start in the Open if you end up there.

still waiting on my ticket too.

77wopke77 - just to say I have now received my ticket, and also an e-mail confirming that it was issued, so I would check again for yours and if you don't have one query it with PSO support.

Cheers

first one played finished 267 out of over 400 so will be a few negative points i guess,

i asked why the dude called a shove by reshoving with A9 and i'll get an answer what stinks like fish!! it's just 3 BB

in my opinion it where almost 4 but what the hell.

there was an early limper and my shove.

mayor wuestion here is?? is it justified to call like the villain did or is it dumb bingo play because the stove says i am a 71% favorite

Both of you had less than 10 BB, he was on the button, he may have been looking for a good shove hand, and so he saw your shorter stack go all in, so with an ace against a short stack, he shoves to isolate you and he was taking his chances. But we've all seen this, ace hits the flop very often on this site, so there are a lot of players who think Ace rag is the nuts. It's a standard play, this has happened a lot to everyone. I've made calls like that before, they don't always work out but sometimes they do.

Hey 77wopke77 - good to see you in these tourneys.

I went out a few places above you at the same blind level. I shoved a much worse hand than yours, from the cut off, over the top of a limper. The blinds both folded and the limper called with worse still and busted me. (I have just posted the hand in the forum under the live training thread).

The problem at this stage is so many players are relatively short stacked. With the blinds of 125/250 plus 225 from antes, then a limp and a shorter stack shoving, it is putting plenty of chips in the pot. They are probably getting reasonable odds to call in a lot of cases with moderately strong hands, such as Ace high, so I do understand your villains shove. After all, he can only put you on a range, and with your stack size you might well be shoving wider to try to take down the blinds and the limper while you still have some small fold equity left. Though it is debateable if the blinds and limpers would have folded without the other player involved too.

With the strength of your hand you are probably looking for the action in any case. As you say, you are a big favourite and if you keep doing this you will be gaining more points in the long run than you lose on the occassions you get beat.

Good luck for the next one.
