Hey there,

I have taken this quiz twice and missed it by one question both times. I might be an idiot, but I cannot find the specific Cash Game NLHE course on here anywhere. I know right? Probably the dumbest question ever.

Can someone guide me to the best resource to pass this quiz please?

Thanks

The only dumb questions are the ones that are never asked, give me a minute and I'll try to look it up for you.

We don't have a cash game course or quiz at this time.

What is the name of the quiz you're seeing?

I don't see a Cash Quiz anywhere. Maybe there was one in the past.

I'll ask one of the Live Trainers later if you don't get a proper answer in the meantime.

Yeah Dan,

I took it last night, cannot take it again for another 15 hours.....lol.....you need a 60% to pass, and it is called Cash Game Quiz.

There are numerous blogs in recent weeks stating that if you pass this course, that $10.00 will be deposited into your account.

Since I am still at around 265 in the Open League, i will take advantage of any promotion that allows me to build a bankroll !!!

If you read the Blog, the lnk is highlighted in red , second paragraph, NHLE Quiz. I clicked on that to take the Quiz, 15 questions.



30.08BB/100 on 1/2NL

First things first... I'm probably going to be invited to the premier league next month, but I'm dropping out of the PokerSchool league.

The reason I started playing the league was to make some $ and start my bankroll. Luckily, PokerStarts were extremly kind to me, and gave me 10$ for passing the NHLE quiz

Than a few days later I got 10$ more, not even knowing why this time. Than, only about a week after that, I got another 15$, again, not knowing why.

So thank you PokerStars for giving me 35$ to jump-start my bankroll. I used these funds, and after about 12 days I now have 55$ in my bankroll.

Another reason for dropping out is that I would not be able to play in the Premier League games because of time constraints. So I figured I should start investing my time elsewhere.

I first started playing SnG's. They started out ok, but my stats so far are not brilliant:

Thanks Dan and RR for the assistance. I have no idea if this actually means I get $10.00 or not, cannot find that link anywhere, but it feels good to get the quiz almost perfect !! Just two quizzes left to go.

You two are great !!

And thank you Skinny,

I had no idea there was a Cash Game overview up til' you posted your query. It makes some welcome reading material for me for two reasons.

1. I'll be playing a lot of micro cash tables in December as I want to increase my multi-table ability. I find that I'm comfortable playing 3 tables at a time, I want to increase this to 6 by the end of the month.

2. November was the first month ever on Pokerstars that I reached 150 Vpp's. I'm going to see if I can reach Silverstar status in December.

So any tips regarding cash game play is very welcome.

Thanks again and good luck on the tables.

So,

I studied and studied and finally managed to pass the NL Cash Game Quiz, which in turn, should reward me with a 10.00 deposit.

However, I get an email this morning from Pokerstars support telling me that there is no such quiz, and that I need to pass the NLHE course and quiz in order to recieve the bonus.

They include a link:

http://www.pokerschoolonline.com/art...lder-promotion

So, I follow this link, and click on the Bankroll Builder Forum, and get this message :


SkinyButPhat, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:

Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

So not only have I passed the course and not recieved the 10.00, I am now not allowed to even look at the, or post in the Bankroll Forum.

Fantastic !!!! Nice to know that I am unable to have the same benefits of being part of Pokerstars and PSO that all other players seem to have.

I give up. Pokerstars support insists that there is a course, specifically called NLHE Course, then gives me the direct link to that Quiz, which in turn is the NL Cash Game Quiz, (WHICH I PASSED) and states that if I pass that quiz, 10.00 will be instantly deposited into my account, which it was NOT.

Seems like I have wasted a lot of time and effort for no reason whatsoever.

Well, believe it or not it can be even worse than that:

I have received E-mails from pokers school on line that 3 instalments will be credited to my acount (I passed the quiz for initial 10$ and earned enough VPPs for other 2 instalments (in total 40$)

Then I got the E-mail that my documents have to be verified and I sent copy of my ID card to verification department. It was approved and verified.

I wrote the E-mail to support in which I attached all their E-mails to me and I am still waiting for response (only 24 hours have passed), hoping that it will be sorted out.

Skiny, this promo is only by invitation I'm afraid.
Were you invited by email?

Soneneso, let us know if you don't hear something soon.

Nope. They give you the links, tell you to do the course, I pass it, and now they send me an email that this 10.00 promotion is ONLY for Itellipoker.TI.........

Not only have they lead me astray, I have now wasted lots of time trying to accomplish something for nothing. More transparency or information would be appreciated from pokerstars. There is nowhere that says that this offer is not open to Canadians, so why even allow me to take the Quiz in the first place, or guide me to it ???

No offers for Canadian players anywhere in PSO, I am not allowed to sign up at Intellipoker.IT, and I will not be recieving any type of cash bonuses.

Pretty sure at this rate, when I finish at about 225 in the OpenPokerLeauge that I will NOT recieve the 5.00 I supposedly have earned this month from a high finish.

Not feeling the pokerstars love today. At all.

Okay, I can understand your frustration. First of all, I guarantee that you will receive your payout for a qualifying finish in any PSO Skill League...usually they get credited early the first day of the month..so don't worry about that.
Second, this is a promotion that is by invitation, can I ask who sent you the links if you didn't get it by email? Other than the one I provided for the cash course obviously.

Support sent me the direct link, which i posted already. Then when they figured out I was not on IntelliPoker, told me that i do not qualify for anything, but thanks anyway and congrats for passing the course.

In a way I feel duped, but whatever, I am at least happy to finish in the top .16% of the Open League, maybe I can finish higher next month, or even turn my $5.00 into a bigger bankroll.

Then maybe I will have something exciting to blog about and be able to be eligible for the Member of the Week, although I think thats a pipe dream......lol

Thanks for the help Dan, feel free to delete all my posts.

We don't need to delete anything. These things occur, especially when something's new. This will only serve to aid others looking at this.
Sending you a pm.
