Another great promotion for PSO members!

I passed the quiz, but it was a lot harder than expected. (Counting all those outs can take a while!)

I'll see a few of you in the freeroll, so good luck!

Agree with arty on this one, glad to see PSO putting out a non NLHE out there, especially my old second game.

Also found the quiz fairly easy myself, getting 75% first attempt.

I passed the Omaha quiz and now in my tournament tickets I have: 2 X Poker School Omaha Ticket : issued on March 25th 2013 and expires April 7th 2013, but neither of them will allow me to enter the freeroll satellite.

But, they will allow me free entry to sit and go Omaha games with a buy in of $1.50c.

I didn't expect these tickets, I expected the freeroll satty one.

Will I receive one ? even if I attend the Live Training session ? or will I have to buy into the main event ?

Long time since I played any Omaha, and then mainly Hi/Lo 2nl cash, but I managed to pass the quiz first time, (83% so need to work out which 2 I got wrong..) Will try to make Live Training Thursday as well, definitely need some pointers. Going to practice in a 5FPP tourney. Another fun and valuable promo - cheers PSO.

Thanks for the tickets though PSO! With more new players trying out the game it should be easier to put them to good use

How much longer do you think it'll take to get to itm? Im kind of tempted to ditch this tourney, since all my chips came from the sitters to begin with - when I have to play against actual people, Im not sure i'll be able to win pots

Kind of a shame there were so many sitters ... I feel bad for doing the same ...

Did the bubble last a long time? I was kind of glad to bust out in 90th, as I didn't fancy nursing a 5bb stack for 3 hours.

Congrats to those of you that made the cut!

Arty, no the bubble did not take that long after I think. Could win a nice few pots to get a stack in top 10 so was safe the blinds where 800/1600 at that time.

I was happy to nurse my stack through the bubble, there were still a few sitters on other tables blinding down and I got a couple of walks in the big blind that helped me make it without having to take a risk in the late stages.

Don't think my Omaha game was very good though, so will be interesting to play the event today.

108 registered so far making a pool of $1,216 paying to 27th so a very nice game to get into.
