Looking forward to playing these as always.

Hope we can attract some newer PSO members - there is a dedicated core that turn out regularly but I am surprised that the numbers have not risen much overall. I think these are among the best training games available for small fields in all the variants of poker and I would like to see us getting into three figures for the tournament entries.

Maybe a bit more promotion could be done. I am hearing PSO mentioned a lot - on the webcasts for EPT for example -and maybe these series just need a little boost from some wider advertising - though the trainers do a good job of mentioning them regularly in Live Training.

Good luck all

Ed

New to PSO and have applied for the home game. I love this idea. Great way to practice and learn from some good players for a bit "cheaper"....cheaper being relative of course

I'm glad to be back took 6 mths off as I needed a break, but deposited $25 so I could be part of the all in shootout (which netted me $4) and allowed me to play in the derby as I lost most of my bankroll chasing Chromestar and the 30 fpp requirement for the shootout. It's been a good run for me (except the HU shootout lol) and have managed 5 straight top 3 finishes, which is quite an honor considering how good you guys are at poker. I managed to qualify for the premier league this month as well so I'm pretty excited about poker again. Have a great day and looking forward to some more games in the derby.

Congrats to all of the prize winners!

The next series will be the PSO Series of Poker and will begin the last week of May and run thru early July (details will be released later this month). This is our premier series every year and the winners of all of the events (non-sattys) will once again receive a virtual bracelet for your forum signature.

Good luck!

Not my best month at the PSO PM series but I snuck into the top ten and if you end above JWK and A-Fistfull then you cannot really complain. It is tough in the PM series folks! I do enjoy the games and it is great to play with the staff and members of PSO.

I was glad to see quite a few new names on the PM tables although overall the numbers were not very high.

Hopefully they will increase with the BLING for the PSOSOP series.

Well done rocky ricoco for winning the PM series with a very good score over the 1K points - that is excellent.

Well done Sailor Moe for 2nd in PM series too.

Those two players took loads of chips off me.

Hope to be able to play a lot of the next series - looking forward to trying for another bracelet.

Thanks PSO & gl in next all.
