Sounds like an awesome opportunity.

Two questions:

1) "... with commentary on the decisions you are making as you play." Does that mean live as it is happening or commenting on play as the hands are shown in a replayer (like PT's hand replayer)?

2) "... the 10 videos with the highest number of views" What the contest's definition of a view?

Thanks,
Saturnation

Replayer is fine, as long as it's in a Youtube video

2) "... the 10 videos with the highest number of views" What the contest's definition of a view?

Youtube views, (as of Nov 2nd at 00:01 EST) and the top 3 will then go to a poll vote here in the forums on November 2nd

I'm really looking forward to seeing all the great videos PSOers make for this awesome promo!

Pro tip: Once you've made your video take full advantage of social media! Tweet and share on Facebook with your friends to really get it out there and get those views up.

Good luck everyone!

This please?!?

And "

Does this mean it cannot be selected hands, but has to include all hands from part of a session/tourney?

Off to make some friends who will be able to view my vid

Hey Profess Awe,

Keep it simple

If you post selected hands that's fine as they will be from a single table that you played recently.

This is a fun, social promotion helping the PokerStars Team celebrate Team Online Week, the main thing is that we enjoy it

It's also a great chance for anyone that hasn't tried making a youtube video to give it a try, once you do one you won't look back!

Thanks for replies! I am going to assume that hands from same zoom pool/same tourney are fine even if not at exact same table.

Hi Folks
Well , I thought I'd get the ball rolling on this great opportunity!
I was pretty close to chickening out on this..I've never done anything like this before.
I'm sure there are many misuses of terminology and a few mistakes in my words, please bare with me..
Created a YouTube channel in order to upload my Boom Re-player video from the linkhttp://www.screencast-o-matic.com/ provided by royalraise85 Ty Ty ..not being tech savy AT ALL..can't believe got this to work

So here's my link http://youtu.be/cfqUYLw0RuUto the 4 hands which I put in my video with commentary..I hope my monotone voice doesn't put you into a deep sleep......unless sleep is what you need because you've been playing too much non-stop poker

Thanks Folks
Hope you enjoy and looking forward to comments and a chance to win a Team PokerStars Coaching Session

Video - Note Taking Basic - Thu Oct 24, 2013, 01:40 AM

Hey guys

Below is a link to the video I put together for the promotion:



In the video I play a 1.50 45 man turbo. I bust out relatively early in the tournament although, as Im only playing the one table, I spend a fair bit of time discussing the systems I use to take notes on player tendencies and profile the various player types.

In game note taking is a concept I struggled with when I first started playing online poker as I didnt have a clue what to write. I spent a fair bit of time researching and developing the system I now use and although its far from perfect I think the video may give new players an idea of what basic notes are useful to make about an opponent throughout a tournament.

Id love to hear what you guys think!!

Talking to myself is embarrasing - Thu Oct 24, 2013, 02:11 AM

Hi guys and girls,

Had a go and can't believe what rubbish I'm normally thinking but now you can hear me talking to myself.


Just 15 minutes at 10NL trying commentary, live reading and labels of opponents. Look out for how I can bluff you. If you watch my video you can now exploit me later and take my money.




And a "Thank you and good night" at the end. Watching too many old bands.


Reading T&C literally here is the link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4K586zZb5g

Wish I could try again but only one entry allowed. Should have put a script together not just ad-lib live.

Hi qwertyel0el,

Welcome to PokerSchoolOnline!

Unfortunately for this promotion it must be entirely in English. However, it would be acceptable to have someone dub your video into English. Hope this helps.

Here is a link to help familiarize you with all the features and services available at PSO. Feel free to look around the forum
and post any comments or questions you may have.



You are invited to join the PokerSchoolOnline Community Home Games Club, and information on how to join the club
may be found HERE.

Hope to see you there!

Joss


2 Time Bracelet Winner

Hello!

Here is my attempt at making a video for the promotion. I play a 15 minute session of limit omaha hi/lo 2c/4c http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmUbbd745Q4

I know exactly how bad it is and I'm somewhat embarrassed by it but I wanted to try it out anyway.

If anybody wants to make any comments on it please feel free to do so!!

The original version had my newborn wailing in the background, figured it was best to edit that out.
