How do you handle a three-bet when you are under the gun? Should you always pretend to have a strong hand after you raise from first position? Learn about this and more of the ins and outs of under the gun in this replayer session.

Attendees of this class will receive a School Pass Ticket as part of the WCOOP Promotion at PokerSchoolOnline!

Today at 15:00 ET (8pm UK Time)

Hoping to get some help from somebody here....

I've signed up and am at the session - at least I THINK that I am in the session. I can hear the trainer, and can hear a lot of background noise, but can't SEE anything! The poker table is empty, and there is NOTHING in the chatbox or in the left-hand margin of the page....

What am I doing wrong - please advise if there is anything I can do to actually SEE this session.

It also appears that nobody is getting MY messages that I am trying to type into the chatbox.


This su-u-ucks!!! Please help


Thanks in advance,

KYA

Kickn,

Try using a different browser (preferably firefox or chrome), make sure your flash player is updated and make sure the screen is not zoomed.

Hello all,

we aplogise for the very poor sound quality of tonight's live training session.

Unfortunately the trainer had no choice but to stream from a public place and hence the noise level during the stream.

Please be assured that this is a once-off and regular live training sessions usually have very clear audio.

If this was your 1st time attending a live training session at PokerSchoolOnline we hope that this experience will not put you off attending future sessions here at the school.

If you have further complaints about tonights session please send them to support@pokerschoolonline.com

Cheers,
Raiser

Thanks John. Was able to get in and out through refreshing. Managed to see most of the material since about the 15min mark.

This WAS my first live training session Paul; and despite the trouble, I enjoyed it. In fact it was better than I had presumed such sessions could be. I will try to make it to more.


Cheers

KYA

Hi rolo!

The reason we've found for no chat box is due to having the screen zoomed.. you cannot zoom the screen or it will cover the chat box.

@rolo, she just needs to refresh her browser. I get that view upon entering the classroom every once in a while, a single refresh clears it up.

The browser being zoomed is not her problem, that's only an issue with live streamed sessions, which Gareth's was not.

The class exceeded the maximum participant slots of 300, so there were a number who would have been entered in viewer only mode, that could have happened in her case too.

He was in New York City, they're not exactly speaking the Queen's English.

It sounded like it might have been Queen's English

Hey Mike, I was in class and was able to record it - forgot to 4x the comments until halfway in, and for some reason when the comments are 4x the quality of the recording turns out much better, so the first half of class is a little fuzzy, but the second half's really clear, although the volume may need to be made a bit louder?

Would it be okay for me to post the youtube clips here, in case anyone who was in class wants to double-check anything? I can remove them if it's not okay.

First Half of Class



Second Half of Class




Whole Class (may be available after 2pm)

PS. Was trying to join the two clips into one vid with the volume turned up, but my first try got screwed up, so I've got a second attempt going now ... if it works out, it'll show here in an hour or so

I was going to ask if you had recorded it and you had already answered the call
Such helpfulness deserves at least a Big bang ticket imo

The only thing about my recordings is that I talk a lot in the chat box - so there's a lot of talk going on in the background of the tape ... and then there's a lot of talk going on in the foreground too hehe Hopefully people don't find it too distracting


Thanks for saying that about the Big Bang ticket Profess Guess if I wanted to have a better chance at getting a ticket that's rewarded for posting in the Blog section, it would probably help for me to not be so lazy about posting the Blog section lol!! Oh well ...

One time in live training, Dave said he'd rather I not post recordings, but hopefully it's okay to post it this time - enjoy!
