Well the Open Skill League is a misnomer for Skill.

Survival and not playing many hands for 2 hours because of the carnage you see before you.

Tilt? Don't tilt. All you have is shove fold range. After 4 hours there is a glimmer of hope. Well 1c top 90 get paid.

Then it gets much worse because the field hasn't been thinned to any Skill level.

Made a FT in 5 hours and feel sick I didn't take it down. So I can take 2 points from this:

1) Sick not winning, 2) Didn't tilt.

7256 players
$10.00 USD added to the prize pool by PokerStars
Total Prize Pool: $10.00 USD

The prize money is not in the individual games but in your cumulative effort for the month. You have to play a lot of games very well to make the first page of the monthly leader board and that will pay off in the long run by making you a better player and that is what the school is trying to acheive.
I have not been paid by PSO for this message but if they do send me a ticket to anything it will be graciously appreciated.

Yes, my perspective of the carnage seen, was playing one or two Open League Skill --or-- a $1 Skill qualifier.

With a volume of games you probably can survive into the leader points.
