I think you should just aim for 6 bracelets again Fist

Sextuplet bracelet winner sounds cooler than dec.. or whatever comes next



As for me not sure how many I can play but will whenever I can - it is an epic series so should have plenty chances to play even if cannot get in a big % for volume for leaderboards.

One bracelet for me and I will be happy.

Added money in some of the RM games should be a great bonus too. Just promote the hell out of these and lets get the numbers up.

Good luck all and thanks again for putting these on PSO.

great series but wish games would be tripled so you have chance to play each game, eg. plo at 3 diff times on same day and nlhe and razz, just gives everybody chance to play each game, but obv you could only reg for each game once.
but besides the moan great stuff PS and PSO

All the best for the upcoming series. Looking forward to the usual high standard of play. Many thanks for all the hard work put into these & hoping to get a sneaky win or two. Hoping the UK manages a clean sweep of 1st, 2nd 3rd with maybe a Canuck getting 4th.

Event 9 for both play money and cash will be a special bounty event.
There will be a 50 leaderboard point bounty on EVERY Team PSO member in the team bounty game, Event 9, on June1st.

Members can also earn one additional 100 point for blogging about knocking out the team member and including the knockout hand in the replayer in their blog post.
Each member is only eligible for one blog bonus for each cash and play money, regardless of how many team members they knockout.

The title of the blog post must be 'I knocked out a PSO Team Member' and must be done before 0:00 ET the 5th will not be eligible for the additional 100 points. Members can also designate in their blog, which leaderboard they would like this 100 points to be applied to (US members must have their points go toward the play money leaderboard).

Yes, you can play as many as you want. The RM games are in the client and take the ticket. The PM games are in the PSO Community Club homegame.

Really looking forward to this series! I've been super busy the past week or so and still have a few hectic days ahead so not played much and this series will give me a much needed poker fix. I'm hoping I can free up enough time to play quite a lot of the games so perhaps a bracelet or two would be nice too. Gonna be fun to see who, if anyone, will earn themselves multiple bracelets. Done in the past but I foresee some big fields, it'll be tougher this year.

Good luck to everyone!

You're doing better than me, Eff, all I can see is events 1-4 in RM, no PM games at all.

The PM games are in the PSO homegame and will go up a day or two beforehand.

the cash games are in the client (I pulled the tourney numbers out yesterday for my sheet and got all of them)... they probably don't show due to a filter that you have on.
