Hello Admins,

Event 13 (Ice Hockey) is Omaha H/L.

The PM game is limit. The RM game is no limit.

Was this intentional?

Thanks.

Hello Annie,

From time to time the line ups of real money and play money games may be different in some way such as starting stacks, round times, game type, and so on

Enjoy your games and very good luck in the series

Thanks for being part of PSO, and Best of Luck at the Tables

Hats off to EdinFreeMan. I played my 2nd and 3rd events of the series yesterday, made 2 final table runs (3rd and 4th) and was looking up at Ed in the lobby each time. And he got my bounty in the team event. Ed you are a beast sir.

Cheers Mr Langolier. Always a pleasure playing with you Dave, and all the other PSOers.

I have even worked out how to unhide the player names in replayer so it doesn't just show HERO/VILLAINS

So in case you forgot January's bounty game



and now February's



So I will be looking for the hat-trick come March.



Having a lot of fun as ever in the PSO series and the standard just gets higher every month.

Best of luck all.

No. Those are only for winning an event in the PSO Series of Poker, which will be later this year.

Just wanted to say sorry for any erratic Play during the two Main Events Including several timeouts. Due to "circumstances beyond my control" I was more than distracted. I hope I did not annoy anyone. I may be similar condition for last 2

Erractic play for the rest of the games was soully due to my poor play style ......(attempt at humor sorry it fell flat but not in a great frame of mind)
